Problem Details

Write the described reaction as a balanced reaction equation: “Lead(II)nitrate solution is added to potassium iodide solution, which results in formation of solid lead(II)iodide while potassium nitrate remains in solution.”

a) PbNO3(soln) + KI(soln) → PbI(solid) + KNO3(soln)

b) Pb(NO3)2 + 2KI → 2PbI + 2KNO3

c) Pb(NO3)2(aq) + KI2(s) → PbI2(s) + K(NO3)2(aq)

d) Pb(NO2)(aq) + 2KI(aq) → PbK 2(s) + I2(NO2)(aq)

e) Pb(NO3)2(aq) + 2KI(aq) → PbI 2(s) + 2KNO3(aq)
