## Question:

Balance the following Redox reaction, which occurs in an acidic solution, using the smallest whole-number coefficients.

{eq}\rm As_2O_3(s) + NO_3(aq) \rightarrow H_3AsO_4(aq) + NO(g) \ unbalanced {/eq}

When the equation is appropriately balanced, what is the coefficient on water and which side of the equation does water appear?

(a) 4,product side

(b) 7, reactant side

## Redox Reactions:

Redox reactions are chemical reactions that involve the simultaneous occurrence of reduction and oxidation. Balancing these types of reactions requires the type of medium where the reaction occurs, be it acidic or basic.
