 precipitation reaction occurs. Yellow precipitates of lead iodide are formed. The equation for this reaction is as follows
Pb(NO3)2 + 2KI -----> PbI2 + 2KNO3
1 5 1
hey sweety can u tell me about the procedure of this reaction
A. Weigh out equal masses of both compounds. These are then in approximately the stoichiometric ratio. Between 10 g and 20 g of each is suitable.
B. Mix the solids in a screw topped jar and shake for several seconds. The yellow colour of lead iodide will be seen.
C. Make a little more of the mixture and place it quickly into a beaker containing a little water. The reaction will be much more rapid.
Yellow lead iodide are formed
