As part of the Paracetamol synthesis lab, the students also had to perform the following calculation to demonstrate their knowledge. Are you able to help them work this out?
When lead (II) nitrate reacts with sodium iodide, sodium nitrate and lead (II) iodide are formed.
The balanced chemical equation is:
Pb(NO3)2 (aq) + 2 NaI (aq) PbI2 (s) + 2 NaNO3 (aq)
If, during this reaction, 23.2 grams of lead (II) nitrate is mixed with 16.8 grams of sodium iodide,
