Double Replacement Reaction

Introduction / Purpose:
The purpose of this experiment is to combine a solution made of potassium iodide and a solution of lead (II) nitrate and produce a precipitate. The reaction is listed as Pb(NO3)2(aq)+2KI(aq) 2KNO3(aq)+PbI2(s). The contents of the beaker was the solution of potassium iodide and lead (II) nitrate. The solution was poured into an Erlenmeyer flask holding a Buchner funnel with a piece of filter paper at the bottom of the funnel. The filter paper contained a yellow precipitate at the end of the experiment. This precipitate was lead (II) iodide. The potassium combined with the nitrate and filtered through the paper whereas the lead combined with the iodide and was not soluable in water and was collected on top of the paper.
