Explain how to prepare 1 L of 0.1 M {eq}H_2SO_4 {/eq} solution from 18 M {eq}H_2SO_4 {/eq}?"

## Question:

Explain how to prepare 1 L of 0.1 M {eq}H_2SO_4 {/eq} solution from 18 M {eq}H_2SO_4 {/eq}?"

## Dilution of Solutions:

The dilution formula states that:

{eq}c_1V_1 = c_2V_2 {/eq}, where:

- {eq}c_1 {/eq} is the initial molarity of the stock solution.

- {eq}V_1 {/eq} is the initial volume of the stock solution.

- {eq}c_2 {/eq} is the molarity of the diluted solution.

- {eq}V_2 {/eq} is the final volume of the diluted solution.
