# Problem: What volume (L) of 0.18 M H2SO4 can be prepared by diluting 143 mL of 5.5 M H2SO4 ?

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to find the volume of 0.18 M H2SO4 can be prepared by diluting 143 mL of 5.5 M H2SO4.

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:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{M}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{{\mathbf{V}}}_{{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{M}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{V}}}_{{\mathbf{2}}}}$

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

Calculate the final volume of the 0.18 M H2SO4 solution.
