Problem: Complete and balance the following equation:BrO3-(aq) + N2H4(aq) → Br2(l) + N2(g) (acidic solution)

FREE Expert Solution

Balancing the redox reaction in acidic media:

BrO3-(aq) + N2H4(aq)  Br2(l) + N2(g)


Step 1: Separate the whole reaction into two half-reactions:

BrO3-(aq) → Br2(l)          N2H4(aq) → N2(g)


Step 2: Balance the non-hydrogen and non-oxygen elements first:

2 BrO3-(aq) → Br2(l)          N2H4(aq) → N2(g)
