Question

Which acid will you use to dissolve lead (II) oxide?

Solution

Correct option is

HNO3

Nitric acid. This is because lead nitrate formed is soluble in water. If H2SO4 is used, an insoluble layer of PbSO4 is deposited on the surface of powder and prevents the further reaction. Likewise, PbCl2 prevents the reaction with HCl.
