HO2-(aq) + MnO4-(aq) = MnO2(s) + O2(g)


I am completely stumped on how to balance this equation, can I get some advice on how to solve it? Thanks.

HO2-(aq) + MnO4-(aq) = MnO2(s) + O2(g)

First it seems the equation might be incomplete seeing as the hydrogen atom specified isnt used, secondly i think you ment ho2 to be H2O2 - hydrogen peroxyde, in that case the equation is as follows:

2-H2O2(aq) + MnO4(aq) = MnO2(s) + 2-O2(g) + 2-H2O(l)

That was interesting
