Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Alex on Monday, February 18, 2008 at 2:24pm.

I found the charges on all of the following atoms and found out that Mn was reduced and C was oxidized.

CH3OH- + MnO4- ----> Mn2+ + CH2O
2e-/C 5e-/Mn
x 5 x 2
= 10 = 10

5CH3OH- + 2MnO4- ----> Mn2+ + CH2O

Can anyone help me balance the rest?
