LEAD NITRATE FLAME TEST (Pb(NO3)2)<br />
Blue White flame indicates presence of Lead (Post Transition metal).<br />
Lead compound is dissociated by flame into gaseous atoms, not ions. Atoms of the element are raised to excited state by high temperature of flame. Excess energy from the atom is emitted as light of a characteristic wavelength.
