When calcium oxelate is treated with an acidic solution of potassium permanganate, the following reaction occurs:

CaC2O4(s) + MnO4-(aq) = Ca+2(aq) + CO2(g) + Mn+2(aq)

Balance the equation.

    You have to add some H+'s to make it all work.

    5CaC2O4 + 2MnO4^- +6H^+ ==> 10CO2 + 8H2O + 2Mn^2+

    I've left out the states since they make it more confusing when typing it out. I hope this helps!
