Question:

Write the balanced chemical equation for each of these reactions, including the phases.

A) When aqueous sodium hydroxide is added to a solution containing lead(II) nitrate, a solid precipitate forms.

B.) When additional aqueous hydroxide is added the precipitate redissolves forming a soluble {eq}(Pb(OH)_{4})^{2-} {/eq}(aq) complex ion.

Precipitation Reaction

Any reaction which leads to the formation of a non-soluble compound from soluble reactants is termed as a precipitation reaction. The non-soluble soluble compound is called a precipitate.
