Problem

Lead(II) chromate (PbCrO4) is used as the yellow pigment for marking traffic lanes but is banned from house paint because of the risk of lead poisoning. It is produced from chromite (FeCr2O4), an ore of chromium: 4FeCr2O4(s) + 8K2CO3(aq) + 7O2(g) ⟶ 2Fe2O3(s) + 8K2CrO4(aq) + 8CO2(g) Lead(II) ion then replaces the K ion. If a yellow paint is to have 0.511% PbCrO 4 by mass, how many grams of chromite are needed per kilogram of paint?
