    Write the half equation of the reduction of VO^2+ AND V^3+ in acidic solution. I don't understand why you can only use h20 and h+ to balance the equation. is this to do with being in an acidic solution?
    Also what are the few substances you can use in balancing redox equations in general?
    sorry if this is all over the place .

    VO2+ + 2H+ + 2e- <---> VO^2+ + H2O

    V^3+ + e- <---> V2+

    To balance redox equations you use H+ ions and e- in acidic conditions, and OH- ions in alkaline conditions. You can also use H2O to balance.
