You have to show your attempts at solving the problem, this is a forum policy.

This was asked in some context, wasn't it? What where the things you were taught lately?

It might help if you defined the product(s).  What are you imagining the oxygen molecule is splitting into?

And I'd be curious to know the fate of the atoms (if that's the question), because they'd need extremely good reasons to stay separated.
