# Lead(II) carbonate, also called “white lead,” was formerly used as a pigment in white paints. However, because of its toxicity, lead can no longer he used in paints intended for residential homes. Lead(II) carbonate is prepared industrially by reaction of aqueous lead(II) acetate with carbon dioxide gas. The unbalanced equation is:math> Pb ( C 2 H 3 O 2 ) 2 ( a q ) + H 2 O ( l ) + CO 2 ( g ) → PbCO 3 ( s ) + HC 2 H 3 O 2 ( a q ) ppose an aqueous solution containing 1.25 g of lead(II) acetate is treated with 5.95 g of carbon dioxide. Calculate the theoretical yield of lead carbonate.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The theoretical yield of lead carbonate should be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

A balanced chemical equation is an equation that contains same number of atoms as well as of each element of reactants and products of reaction.

For example, the reaction between lead sulphide and oxygen is as follows:

2 PbS +  3 O22PbO +  2SO2  Reactants            Products

The limiting reactant in a particular reaction has due to following properties:

1. Limiting reactant completely reacted in a particular reaction.
2. Limiting reactant determines the amount of the product in mole.
Explanation

Theoretical yield is also known as calculated yield. Theoretical yield is the amount of product which is theatrically calculates by the amount of limiting agent. It is the maximum amount of product which is formed in any reaction.

Other name of actual yield is observed yield.

The percentage yield is calculated by the actual or observed experimental yield divided by the theoretical yield and multiplied by 100.

The percentage yield can be calculates by the use of following expression:

Actual yield or given yield Theoretical yield or calculated yield ×100%

Theoretical yield is the greatest amount of a product possible from a reaction, when assume that the reaction goes to 100% competition.

The balance equation for the formation of lead carbonate is as follows:

Pb(CH3COO)2 (aq)+H2O(l) + CO2(g)  PbCO3(s) +CH3COOH (aq)

Given:

Amount of Pb(CH3COO)2 = 1.25 g

Amount of CO2 = 5.95 g

Calculation:

Number of moles of Pb(CH3COO)2 and CO2 is calculated as follows:

Number of moles=mass in gmolarmass=1.25 g325.29 g/mol=0
