3) 2, a white precipitate of lead chloride, PbCl 2, forms. Which of the following is the total ionic equation for this reaction?

a. Pb2+(aq) + Cl22-(aq) ® PbCl2(s)

b. 2 NH4Cl(aq) + Pb(NO3)2(aq) ® PbCl2(s) + 2 NH4NO3(aq)

c. Pb2+(aq) + 2 Cl-(aq) ® PbCl2(s)

d.2 NH4+(aq) + 2 Cl-(aq) + Pb2+(aq) + 2 NO3-(aq)

® PbCl2(s) + 2 NH4+(aq) + 2 NO3-(aq)
