In the presence of lead, a complex is formed with two lead ions and two sensor molecules. This induces a significant change in the solution color: With increasing concentrations of lead, the color changes from baby pink to light green.

What lead is easiest to erase?

The pencils that, generally speaking, erase the best are in the 2B, 3B and 4B grades. Graphite pencils are available in a series that spans across 9B to 9H. While 9H is typically the hardest and lightest graphite pencil, 9 B is the softest lead available, so soft that it’s rarely used!

Lead can cross the placental barrier, which means pregnant women who are exposed to lead also expose their unborn child. Lead can damage a developing baby’s nervous system.

Is lead rust proof?

Lead is a highly corrosion resistant metal in some environments and an attempt has been made to show its strength and weakness under long-term corrosion in land and marine conditions by means of examples taken from archaeological contexts.

Why do European pencils not have erasers?

Drawing Pencils Without Erasers Either way, drawing pencils tend to lack erasers because the expectation is not that artists never erase, but rather when they do erase, artists want control, comfort, and the utmost safety for their medium (be it paper, canvas, or anything else).
