Balance the equation:

Note: If a chemical species coefficient is "1" then "1" needs to be entered in the field before that species.

1 MnO4– + 8H+ +__ Fe2+ -->1Mn2+ + 4H2O + __Fe3+

**kelly**, Thursday, April 24, 2008 at 9:30pmput 6 before Fe2+ and Fe3+

**James**, Thursday, April 24, 2008 at 10:54pmwait why is it 6?

- Chemistry -- to Dr.Bob -
**kelly**, Thursday, April 24, 2008 at 11:43pmbecause its a redox reaction. the number of electrons in the Fe2+ to Fe3+ half-equation must equal the number of electrons in the MnO4 to Mn2+ half-equation, which is 6. Thus you need to have 6 Fe2+ and 6 Fe3+ also.

Balance each half-equation first, and then combine the 2. :)

**DrBob222**, Thursday, April 24, 2008 at 11:40pmMn changes from +7 on the left to +2 on the right.

Fe changes from +2 on the left to +3 on the right.

Therefore, place a 5 for both Fe on the left and right. The others are ok.
