Problem

What is the concentration of a solution made by diluting 35 mL of 6.0 M HCI to a final volume of 750 mL?


Solution

We are being asked to find the final concentration of the HCl solution when its volume is increased from 35 mL to 750 mL. 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:
