Dilutions of Solutions Calculator

The dilution of substance refers to the process of making any solution weaker or less concentrated. It is a solution containing a relatively small quantity of solute as compared with the amount of solvent. This term is the opposite of 'concentrated'.

    Formula

    Volume After Dilution (V2) = [(V1 * M1) /M2]
    Volume Of Solvent Added During Dilution (V) = ( V2 - V1 )

     

    Where,
    V1 = Volume of solution before dilution
    V2 = Volume of solution after dilution
    M1 = Concentration before dilution
    M2 = Concentration after dilution

    Process of reducing the concentration of a solute in solution, usually simply by mixing with more solvent is dilution.

     

    Example:
    Calculate the volume of the given solvent added during dilution (V) and the volume after dilution (V2).
    Volume Before Dilution (V1): 25 L
    Concentration Before Dilution (M1): 10 Mol/L
    Concentration After Dilution (M2): 7 Mol/L

    Solution:
    Apply Formula:
    Volume After Dilution (V2) = [(V1 * M1) /M2]
    Volume of Solvent Added During Dilution (V) = ( V2 - V1 )

    Volume After Dilution (V2): 35.714285714285715 L
    Volume of Solvent Added During Dilution (V): 10.714285714285715 L
