# What is the balanced ionic redox reaction of nitrite ions with manganate(VII) ions in acidic solution?

What is the balanced ionic redox reaction of nitrite ions with manganate(VII) ions in an acidic solution?

My suggestion is:

$\ce{5NO2- + 2MnO4- + 6H+ -> 5NO3- + 2Mn^{+2} + 3H2O}$

Is that right?
