YO2 + H2O ---> H2YO3

That is my guess, but i'm not sure if the numbers 2 and 3 in the product are correct, or if the product is even correct.

Actually, nothing is correct... including the question. There is no such thing as YO2. The formula for yttrium oxide is Y2O3. Add water to that... nothing happens. Yttrium oxide is sparingly soluble in water.

Unless Y stands just for "unknown"...
