Ion electron balancing problem

  1. Feb 25, 2015 #1
    In ion electron method to balance equation we have to follow steps ... i am doing it but here i am confusing how to do this ....
    There are two partial equations i have made in basic medium
    1- H2PO2---------> H2PO3^-1
    2-Fe(OH)3---------->Fe(OH)2
    Now the second step is to balance the atoms
    By adding 2OH for Oxygen and H2O for Hydrogen
    But it cant solve
    Helpp me plzzzzz
    Thanks

    Show how you approach the first reaction.

    I had a full reaction
    H2PO2+Fe(OH)3------->H2PO3^-1+Fe(OH)2
    Then i split it into two partial equations according to rule ..

    Show how you are trying to balance first (or second, whichever you like) half reaction.
