See below.


The reaction you want to undergo is the decomposition of water:

#2 " H"2"O" -> 2" H2" + "O"2#

Basically, you are using decomposition, or the breaking down of molecules, to break down two water molecules into 2 molecules of Hydrogen gas and one molecule of Oxygen gas.

I hope that helps!
