Solution: A 27.6-mL sample of a 1.62 M potassium chloride solution is mixed with 14.6 mL of a 0.890 M lead(II) nitrate solution and this precipitation reaction occurs:2 KCl(aq) + Pb(NO3)2(aq) → PbCl2(s) + 2 KNO

Problem
A 27.6-mL sample of a 1.62 M potassium chloride solution is mixed with 14.6 mL of a 0.890 M lead(II) nitrate solution and this precipitation reaction occurs:

2 KCl(aq) + Pb(NO3)2(aq) → PbCl2(s) + 2 KNO3(aq)


The solid PbCl2 is collected, dried, and found to have a mass of 2.56 g. Determine the limiting reactant, the theoretical yield, and the percent yield.

Determine the theoretical yield.
