# What volume of 12.1 M HCl is needed to obtain 30 mL of a 6.0 M solution?

## Question:

What volume of 12.1 M HCl is needed to obtain 30 mL of a 6.0 M solution?

## Dilution:

The initial concentration of the HCl solution is provided in the problem. The problem wants to obtain 30 mL of a 6.0 M HCl solution by using 12.1 M HCl solution as the stock or starting material. Since the starting concentration (12.1 M) is higher than the final concentration (6.0 M), we can perform dilution to achieve the 30 mL of 6.0 M HCl solution.

View this answerThe equation for dilution is:

{eq}\rm C_1V_1=C_2V_2 {/eq}

where:

{eq}C_1 {/eq} is the initial concentration

{eq}V_1 {/eq} is the initial...
