  1. ClO3^- + 2I^- ==> I2 + ClO2
    Cl changes from +5 to +4. 2I changes from -2 (for both) to 0.
    Now what don't you understand?

  3. If you follow the proper procedure for balancing redox equations, the OH^- adds to the appropriate side. http://www.chemteam.info/Redox/Balance-HalfReactions-Base.html

    How would you balance this reaction(it's a half reaction problem): H2O2+ClO2-->ClO2+O2 (basic solution) thanks. i'm just confused b/c its a basic solution. all i know is that you have to add OH to it or something. thanks again for
