It will react: $Pb + 2AgNO_3 --> Pb(NO_3)_2 + 2Ag$

Work Step by Step

Recall, since lead is above silver on the activity series, it will react. To form the chemical equation, show a reaction in which lead begins by itself and then becomes bonded to $NO_3$ while Ag begins with $NO_3$ and ends up by itself. Finally, balance the chemical equation.
