# Problem: If 4.12 L of a 0.850 M-H3PO4 solution is be diluted to a volume of 10.00 L, what is the concentration of the resulting solution?

###### FREE Expert 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 concentration of the solution.
