# Solution Dilution Calculator

The tool of solution dilution by calculator online is used to determine the multiple concentrations of diluted stock solutions and create a specific concentration and volume.

Our solution dilution calculator determines the volume of a stock solution which is required to create the desired concentration of a final solution. It takes into account the initial and final concentration along with the initial volume.

## Concept of Solution Dilution:

Dilution is a method of lowering the concentration of a solute in the volume of a solution. It is a common practice to achieve the desired concentration for a particular analysis. It entails adding more solvent to a solution without increasing the amount of solute.

The simple way to dilute a solution is to combine a more concentrated solution with a less concentrated one. This is essential when stock solutions are typically obtained and stored in high concentrations.

## Solution Dilution Formula:

C1V1 = C2V2

Where:

C1 = Initial concentration of the solution

V1 = Volume of the initial solution

C2 = Final concentration of the solution

V2 = Final volume of the diluted solution

## Practical Example:

Let's say we have a solution with an initial concentration of 0.1 M (molarity) and a volume of 500 mL. We want to dilute this solution to a final concentration of 0.05 M. So find the volume of a diluted solution.

### Solution:

• Initial concentration C1 = 0.1 M
• Initial Volume V1 = 0.5 L
• Final concentration C2 = 0.05 M

Dilution Formula:

$${C_{1} V_{1}} = {C_{2}{V_2}}$$

We can rearrange the formula to solve for V2

$$V_{2}=\frac{C_{1} V_{1}}{C_{2}}$$

Substituting the given values:

$$V_{2}=\frac{0.1 M \times 0.5 L}{0.05 M}$$

$$V_{2}=\frac{0.05 \text{ mol/L} \times 0.5 \text{ L}}{0.05 \text{ mol/L}}$$

$$V_{2}=1.0 \mathrm{~L}$$

Using the solution dilution calculator, we find that to dilute the initial solution from 0.1 M to 0.05 M, we need to add 1.0 liter of solvent.

## FAQs:

### What Is a Concentrated Solution?

The concentrated solution refers to the amount of solute dissolved in the solution compared to the amount of solvent.

### How Do You Dilute a 10% Solution To a 1% Solution?

To dilute a 10% solution to a 1% solution, you need to add nine parts of solvent (such as water) to one part of the 10% solution.

Take 10 ml of the 10% solution to 90 ml of solvent to create a 100 ml solution.

### How Do You Dilute 1M To 0.8 m?

To dilute a 1M solution to 0.8M there is a need to calculate the amount of solvent to the 1M solution.

= 1 M x V1

= 0.8 M x 50 ml V1

= 40 ml

For Example, if you have 100mL of 1M solution, you would need to add 80mL of solvent to achieve a 0.8M solution.
