Answer:

#"Lead sulfide.........and acetic acid"#

This is a simple acid/base reaction...........

Explanation:

All sulfides are insoluble; lead sulfide is particularly insoluble.

#Pb^(2+) + S^(2-) rarr PbS(s)darr#

This is the net ionic equation.

The stoichiometric equation would be:

#Pb(OAc)_2(aq) + H_2S(aq) rarr PbS(s)darr + 2HOAc(aq)#

#HOAc=HO(O=)C-CH_3#

A black precipitate of lead sulfide would precipitate with alacrity.
