    The balanced equation for the dissociation of KI is

    KI → K⁺ + I⁻

    Explanation:

    KI is the potassium iodide.

    K⁺ comes from the KOH, a strong base, so the cation is the conjugate weak acid and in water it does not react.

    I⁻ comes from HI, a strong acid, so the anion is the conjugate weak base and in water it does not react.

    K⁻ + H₂O ← KOH + H⁺

    I⁻ + H₂O ← HI + OH⁻

    That's why the arrow in the reaction is in the opposite direction.
