In designing your procedure, it is useful to remember that diluting a substance
does not change the amount of that substance. So the number of moles of the
substance before the dilution is the same as the number of moles after the dilution
(conservation of matter). The number of moles in solution is given by the concentration
(C in moles/liter) multiplied by the volume (V in liters). So the conservation of matter implies:
C1V1 = C2V2
where C is concentration and V is volume. 1 labels the solution before the dilution
and 2 labels the solution after the dilution. (This expression is based on the number
of moles of the substance between the same before and after the dilution, with C
(moles/liter) * V (liter) = moles).
Important: Please describe your complete procedure and the key quantities
you measure. Points are based on whether or not you explain your procedure in sufficient detail
for us to know what you did. You are not graded on the method you used; all approaches that
produce accurate results are fine.
Calculate and explain below how you will make this solution.
Now check your answer using the Virtual Lab.
