See explanation


This reaction is oxidation because one of its substrats is ferrum and on of its products is ferrum oxide. However it is not correct because it is not ballanced (i.e. the number of atoms of elements is not equal on the left and right side). On the left side there is 1 atom of oxygne while on the right side there are 3 atoms of oxygene.

The ballanced reaction is:

#3H_2O + 2Fe -> Fe_2O_3+ 3H_2#
