Lead nitrate crystals on strong heating decompose to form lead monoxide, nitrogen dioxide gas and oxygen gas. Explain


When lead(II) nitrate is heated, it breaks down into yellow colour lead (II) oxide, colourless gas of oxygen and brown colour nitrogen dioxide. The chemical equation for the above reaction is,

2Pb(NO₃)₂ → 2PbO + 4NO₂ + O₂
