How do you determine the half reactions of a reaction involving water? The question gives the reaction H+(aq) + OH-(aq) ---> H2O(l) and asks for balanced half reactions and the cell diagram.

You need to balance this using elemental oxygen.

How do we know that there is elemental oxygen present? Usually we can only balance redox reactions with H2O, OH-, and H+

Isn't that already balanced?
