1000ml contains 3 moles of Pb(NO3)2

So,275 ml contains 3*275/1000 =0.825 moles of Pb(NO3)2.

Similarly 625 ml contains 2.5*625/1000

=1.56 moles of Nacl.

The reaction is

Pb(NO3)2 +2Nacl= Pbcl2 +Na(NO3)2

So limiting reagent is Pb(NO3)2

From the reaction,

1 mole Pb(NO3)2 react and 1 mole Pbcl2 produced.

0.825 moles Pb(NO3)2 react and 0.825 moles of Pbcl2 produced.

0.825 moles =(0.825*278.1) g

=229.43 g of Pbcl2.
