Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Emily on Monday, May 17, 2010 at 10:30pm.

I know this is supposed to be a really easy concept, but I need help with balancing redox reactions:

KClO3 ==> KCl + O2

My textbook says to write the ionic equation next, which I have written like:

K(+1) + ClO3(-1) ==> K(+1) + Cl(-1) + O2(-2)

(the number in parentheses indicates the charge)

Is this correct so far? Where do I go from here? Thanks so much!!! :)
