What is the difference between the solubility of lead salts versus lithium salts...specifically their nitrate salts?

Answer:

Have you posed this question correctly?

Explanation:

I ask because clearly aqueous solubilities are relevant to the question. Most (all?) of the salts of #Li^+# are soluble, as are all nitrate salts, whereas lead sulfate is pretty insoluble stuff.

This site lists the aqueous solubility product of #PbSO_4# as #K_(sp) = 2.13xx10^-8# at #20# #""^@C#. On the other hand, lead nitrate is fairly soluble. #Pb(SO_4)_2# would be pretty rare stuff.
