The given reaction is: We first need to balance this chemical equation. Add a coefficient of 2 to KCl to balance the number of Cl: Add a coefficient of 4 to KOH to balance the number of K: Add a coefficient of 4 to H2C2O4 to balance the number of C: Add a coefficient of 20 to H2O to balance the number of H. This also balances the number of O. The balanced complete equation is: 95% (146 ratings) ###### Problem Details
