Hi all,

I have a problem than I need to figure out.

I have added 7ml ethanol to 3.2 gm leaf(any leaf)

I have been told to dilute the solution to 1:10 ratio. How to do it?

Could you all please help me?

Now you have a solution right? To dilute the solution 10 times, add 10 times the solvent to it...

Close, but wrong. Adding 10 volumes of solvent would dilute the solution 11 times.

So I believe we have to add 9 times the solvent, sorry for that mistake...
