# How many mL of a 4.0 M HCl solution is required to make 500 mL of a 0.60 M HCl solution?

## Question:

How many mL of a 4.0 M HCl solution is required to make 500 mL of a 0.60 M HCl solution?

## Dilution:

Dilution is the process of producing a diluted solution by combining a certain volume of stock solution with the solvent up until the resulting mixture reaches a specified volume. In this process, we increase the amount of solvent while keeping the initial amount of solute from the stock solution constant in the resulting solution.
