Problem 136

Lead(Il) chromate $\left(\mathrm{PbCrO}_{4}\right)$ is used as the yellow pigment for marking traffic lanes but is banned from house paint because of the risk of lead poisoning. It is produced from chromite (FeCr_a $\mathrm{O}_{4} )$ an ore of chromium:
$$
4 \mathrm{FeCr}_{2} \mathrm{O}_{4}(s)+8 \mathrm{K}_{2} \mathrm{CO}_{3}(a q)+7 \mathrm{O}_{2}(g) \longrightarrow
$$
$$
2 \mathrm{Fe}_{2} \mathrm{O}_{3}(s)+8 \mathrm{K}_{2} \mathrm{CrO}_{4}(a q)+8 \mathrm{CO}_{2}(g)
$$
Lead(II) ion then replaces the $\mathrm{K}^{+}$ ion. If a yellow paint is to have 0.511$\% \mathrm{PbCrO}_{4}$ by mass, how many grams of chromite are needed per kilogram of paint?
