When solutions of KCl and Pb(NO3)2 are mixed, a precipitate forms. Which of the following is the balanced equation for the double replacement reaction that occurs?

a. KCl(aq) + Pb(NO3)2 (aq) �¨ KNO3 (aq) + PbCl2 (s)

b. KNO3 (aq) + PbCl2 (s) �¨ KCl(aq) + Pb(NO3)2 (aq)

c. K+ (aq) + NO3-(aq) �¨ KNO3 (aq)

d. 2KCl (aq) + Pb(NO3)2 (aq) �¨ 2 KNO3 (aq) + PbCl2 (s)

e. KCl(aq) + Pb(NO3)2 (aq) �¨ KNO3 (aq) + PbCl(s)
