Complete the following chemical reactions.
`MnO_(4(aq))^(-) + H_2O_(g)->`
Classify the above into (a) hydrolysis, (b) redox and (c) hydration reactions.
`2MnO_(4(aq))^- + 5H_2O_(2(g)) -> 6H_((aq))^+ -> 2Mn_((aq))^(2+) + 8H_2O_(l) + 5O_(2(g))`
`H_2O_(2(aq))` is acting as a reducing agent in the acidic medium, thereby oxidizing `MnO_(4(aq))^(-)`
Hence, the given reaction is a redox reaction.
