Diluting the solution

  1. Sep 27, 2013 #1
    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...
