Homework Statement


This is my equation. I needed to balance it in an acidic solution.

H2O2(aq)---->H2O(l)


Homework Equations


I know that you should balance oxygen using H2O & hydrogen using H+.
I am confused on how you balance the ionic charges.


The Attempt at a Solution


This is what I got for my answer
2 e- + 2H+ +H2O2---->2H2O

Not clear to me what you are doing - are you expected to balance a half reaction? If so, what you did is OK.

What you wrote suggests you are asked to balance it as a full reaction, which is impossible.
