###### Materials
• Whatman 3 filter paper
• 10 hot plates
• 10 balances

###### Chemicals
• 1.5 L of saturated lead chloride solution.
• 300 mL of 0.5 M potassium chromate solution

###### Instructions for making solutions:
1. Put 1.5 grams of solid lead(II) chloride into 1.5 L of water.  Stir for 30 minutes.  There will be some solid remaining.  Transfer into 5 bottles.  Put some solid lead(II) chloride into the bottom of each bottle to maintain saturation.
2. Warning: potassium chromate is carcinogenic.  Wear gloves, glasses and apron.  Wash hands after using.

Waste bottles are needed.

###### SDS Info
• Lead (II) Chloride – Health Hazard – harmful if swallowed or inhaled; Health hazard – carcinogen; Health Hazard – reproductive toxicity; Exclamation point – causes damage to organs; Environmental – aquatic toxicity
• Potassium Chromate – Exclamation point – causes skin irritation; Health Hazard – may cause allergic skin reaction; Health Hazard – causes serious eye irritation;  Health hazard – may cause respiratory irritation; Health hazard – mutagenicity; Health hazard – carcinogen; Environmental – aquatic toxicity
