Balancing redox equations


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if someone could help me out with these two equations, somehow I cannot manage to balance them properly...


1)CrO4^2- + Fe^2+ --> Cr^3+ + Fe^3+ (in acidic solution)



2)MnO4^- + ClO2^- --> MnO2 + ClO4^- (in basic solution)



I'll really appreciate any help,

Write down half reactions (e.g. CrO4(2-) + 8H(+) + 3e --> Cr(3+) + 4H2O) for all of the oxidizers and for the reductors, and then combine the oxidizer equation and reductor equation, such that the number of electrons is the same at both sides of the arrow.
