# What is the formula for dilution?

Molarity is the number of moles of solute per liter of solution. To dilute a stock solution, the following dilution equation is used: M1 V1 = M2 V2. M1 and V1 are the molarity and volume of the concentrated stock solution, and M2 and V2 are the molarity and volume of the diluted solution you want to make.

Similarly, it is asked, how do you dilute a concentration?

Dilute the concentrate with an appropriate amount of diluting liquid, which is determined relative to the initial volume of concentrate being used. See below: For example, if we want to dilute 1 cup of concentrated orange juice to 1/4 its initial concentration, we would add 3 cups of water to the concentrate.

Why would you need to dilute solutions?

Dilution is the process of decreasing the concentration of a solute in a solution, usually simply by mixing with more solvent. To dilute a solution means to add more solvent without the addition of more solute. The resulting solution is thoroughly mixed so as to ensure that all parts of the solution are identical.

How do you change concentration?

The mass of the salt converted to moles divided by the liters of water in the solution would give the Molarity (M) or concentration of the solution. The simplest way to change the concentration would be to change the amount of solute or solvent in the solution. Increasing the solute would increase the concentration.
