Expert Answer

Step 1

Seven steps are required to balance a redox reaction in acid solution. First reduction and oxidation half reaction are identified. The elements expect oxygen and hydrogen is balanced and then oxygen is balanced by adding H2O.

Step 2

The hydrogen is balanced by adding H+ and then charge of each of the half reaction is balanced. On the sixth step, number of electrons on both half reaction is made equal.
