Help


Error: equation K(MnO4)+H2O2+H2SO4=K2(SO4)+Mn(SO4)+O2+H2O can be balanced in an infinite number of ways: this is a combination of two different reactions..... Why ? K(MnO4)+H2O2+H2SO4=K2(SO4)+Mn(SO4)+O2+H2O
I need a better explanation. Please

It is a redox reaction.
MnO4 - + 8 H+ + 5 e- => Mn 2+ + 4 H2O Reduction
H2O2 => 2 H+ + O2 + 2 e - is the Oxidation.

Potassium and Sulfate are spectator ions and don't change.

From this two equations you should develop the main reaction.
