What volume, in L, of a 10.0 M HCl solution is needed to make 2.00 L of 2.00 M HCl solution by dilution with water?
Calculating Dilution of Acids:
Acids or bases can be diluted by adding water to them which results in a decrease in the concentration of ions in solution. The most popular concentration units used for solutions is molarity which is defined as moles of solute per liter of solution.
