    What is the context of your question? What do you know about chemical reactions? What chemicals and methods do you have available to you?

    Don't. Nitrates are very soluble in water. This would be a very efficient way to poison yourself.

    A lead hydroxide compound and sulfuric acid?

    Er, nitric acid.

    That should work. I think my stoichometry's correct.

    Pb(OH)2 + 2HNO3 --> Pb(NO3)2 + 2H2O

    Nitric acid should easy to find, but I don't know about lead hydroxide. Again, the lead nitrate is very soluble. You'd need to either use high concentrations of reactants to create a precipitate, do an extraction to another solute, or boil the water away. Also, acid-base reactions are very exothermic.

    This dosen't seem to be the best route. What do you want it for anyway?

    Yeah, I think we should let the OP come back and post what they are intending to do, before giving too much more help. Thanks.

    Pb + 2HNO3 -->H2 + Pb(NO3)2

    Or maybe this.

    NOx gasses are generated in when mixing HNO3 and Lead metal, though this procedure does work.

    Is the amount of nitric/nitrous oxide generated negligible?

    It is not a very vigorous reaction, but it done in sufficient quantities with a concentrated enough acid solution one will easily be able to tell (by the odor and the brownish color) that NO2 is produced.

    Not at all, although at room T the reaction's speed is lower than that with copper (anyway the reaction is exothermic and so the speed increases).
