To which substance is dilute sulfuric acid added to prepare lead(II) sulfate?
Any soluble lead(II) salt.........
And we could write the reaction as....................:
This is a very poor multiple choice question (most multiple choice questions are!), because I am willing to bet that sulfuric acid added to lead carbonate would decompose the carbonate, bring the salt briefly up into solution, and then the insoluble lead sulfate would precipitate:
The oxide is possibly too insoluble. I might do this reaction tomorrow to see if I am right.
