# Given 100 mL of a 12.0 M HCl solution, how much 6.0 M HCl solution can you make?

## Question:

Given 100 mL of a 12.0 M HCl solution, how much 6.0 M HCl solution can you make?

## Dilution of Solutions:

By diluting a stock solution, we can prepare multiple solutions of lower concentrations. The process of dilution involves adding more solvent into the original stock solution. The concentration decreases as the total volume increases while the moles of solute remain constant.
