How to prepare reagents

  1. Dec 8, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    There is a reagent given . NaOH with concentration of 0,32 mol/ L
    HOw to prepare it ?
    it says dilute 1 part by volume of solution Naoh with 4 parts by volume of redist.water ??
    (Neglect the total volume that you need , it's not important ) just the process to make it

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Is it correct if i say 1 mL of naoh solution and 4 ml of water ?

    Problem doesn't look complete to me. You say you have a reagent and you are asked to prepare it. You either have it, or you have to prepare it.

    And dilution is used to prepare a solution with a lower concentration from a more concentrated solution. You listed only one concentration, so there is not enough information to calculate any dilutions.
