## Question:

a. Write a balanced chemical equation for the reaction between aqueous lead(II) nitrate and aqueous potassium iodide to produce solid lead(II) iodide and aqueous potassium nitrate.

b. Calculate the grams of lead(II) iodide that can be produced from 75.00 grams of potassium iodide

## Reaction Stoichiometry:

Substances, whether in the form of elements or compounds, are either consumed or produced in a chemical reaction. The process of calculating how much is used or generated is called reaction stoichiometry, and it typically employs mole-to-mole ratios of the substances in their balanced chemical equation. Obtaining the desired amount of a particular reactant or product requires dimensional analysis and for mass-to-mass stoichiometry, the molar masses of at least one substance is required in the calculations.
