Step 1

The initial concentration of Pb(NO3)2 is taken as x M. Then the concentration of Pb2+ in the solution is determined as given.

Step 2

The initial concentration of NaCl is 3.50× 10-2 M. Then the concentration of Cl- in the solution is determined as given.

Step 3

Concentration of Pb(NO3)2 solution added can be calculated from the ex...
