8.18   Balance the following redox reactions by ion – electron method 

(d) Cr_{2}O_{7}^{2-}+SO_{2}(g) \rightarrow Cr^{3+}(aq)+SO_{4}^{2-}(aq)

in acidic medium

Answers (1)

Answer(a)-

Half-reaction

oxidation half   SO_{2}+2H_{2}O\rightarrow SO_{4}^{2-}+4H^{+}+2e^{-}

reduction half Cr_{2}O_{7}^{2-}+14H^{+}+6e^{-}\rightarrow 2Cr^{3+}+3SO^{2-}+H_{2}O

balancing them by multiplying oxidation half by 3 and adding the reaction

Cr_{2}O_{7}^{2-}+3SO_{2}+2H^{+}\rightarrow 2Cr^{3+}+3SO_{4}^{2-}+H_{2}O
