We are asked which of the following options would yield 0.200 M K2SO4 solution


When we are adding water (or solvent) to a solution to decrease its concentration, we are diluting the solution. 

When dealing with dilution we will use the following equation:

M1V1=M2V2

M1 = initial concentration
V1 = initial volume
M2 = final concentration
V2 = final volume
