The redox reaction below occurs in acidic solution. Balance it with the smallest whole number coefficients and determine the coefficient for H+. MnO4-(aq) + HNO2(aq) ---> Mn2+(aq) + NO3-(aq)
when i did it..i got the answer as1...but im not to sure..help?
How can you not be too sure? The equation is either balanced or it isn't and you know when you finish if it is right or not. I get 1 H^+ too. And I know that's right because the equation balances
3. electron change.
Balance this equation in acidic solution Mno-4+Clo3=Clo4+Mn2+
