In a reduction reaction, some electrons are gained by the substance being reduced. The balanced half-reaction to this would be: MnO2(s)  +  4 H+ (aq)  +  2e ---> Mn^2+ (aq)  +  2 H2O (aq) It is called balanced reaction since the number of each element in the left side is equal to the number of each element on the right side.
