Use oxidation numbers to identify if this reaction is REDOX reactions.

SO2(g) + H2O(l) -> H2SO3(aq)

for oxidation #s I got:

SO2 = -2 for the S
= -2 for the o2

H20 = +1 for H2
= -2 for O

-->

H2SO = +1 for H2
= -2 for S
= -2 for O3

There for one oxygen was reduced hence REDOX did occure

True??

    What would be more acidic? SO2 or SO3? Does this have to do something with the higher oxidation state? And why is that? Or can we say SO3 is more acidic by, SO2+H2O--->H2SO3 SO3+H2O--->H2SO4 as H2SO4 is more acidic?
