Answers (1)

Answer-

oxidation half reaction

SO_{2}+2H_{2}O\rightarrow HSO_{4}^{-}+3H^{+}+2e^{-}

reduction half reaction

MnO_{4}^{-}+8H^{+}+5e^{-}\rightarrow Mn^{2+}+4H_{2}O

Balancing the reaction

multiply the oxidation half by 5 and reduction half by 2 and then add these two reactions 

2MnO_{4}^{-}+5SO_{2}+2H_{2}O+H^{+}\rightarrow 2Mn^{2+}+5HSO_{4}^{-}
