# How many mL of 12.0 M HCl(aq) must be diluted with water to make exactly 500 mL of 3.0 M HCl?

## Question:

How many mL of 12.0 M HCl(aq) must be diluted with water to make exactly 500 mL of 3.0 M HCl?

## Molarity:

If the molarity of a solution is high that means the concentration of the solute in the solution is high and to reduce the molarity of the solution is needed to be diluted by adding some amount of water.
