When a lead acid car battery is recharged by the alternator, it acts essentially as an electrolytic cell in which solid lead(II) sulfate (PbSO) is reduced to lead at the cathode and oxidized to solid lead(II) oxide (PbO) at the anode. Suppose a current of 29.0 A is fed into a car battery for 69.0 seconds. Calculate the mass of lead deposited on the cathode of the battery. Be sure your answer has a unit symbol and the correct number of significant digits.
