## Question:

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.

Given:

Molarity of concentrated HCl: *M*1 = 10.0 M

The volume of concentrated HCl: *V*1 (unknown)

Molarity of dilute HCl: *M*2 = 2.00 M

The volume of...
