  1. May 10, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Complete the simple displacement reactions and balance any chemical reactions.

    2. Relevant equations

    Pb + NaCl → __________ + ____________

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Pb + NaCl → PbCl + Na

    But I don't know which charge of lead to use: Pb2+ or Pb4+ to complete/continue my answer

    Shouldn't you first check with reactivity series if there is a chance for the reaction to proceed?
