🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Joseph's class at UCSB.

Solution: Write a balanced half-reaction for the oxidation of solid iodine dioxide (IO2) to iodate ion (IO3-) in acidic aqueous solution. Be sure to odd physical state symbols where appropriate.

Problem

Write a balanced half-reaction for the oxidation of solid iodine dioxide (IO2) to iodate ion (IO3-) in acidic aqueous solution. Be sure to odd physical state symbols where appropriate.

Solution

First step in balancing redox half reactions is that try to balance first the non- Hs and Os in the reaction

For IO2 and IO3-, I is already balanced. Next step is balance the O by adding H2O in either of the sides

In this case, we have to add H2O in the reactant side
