If i take a piece of iron, and put it into a 0.1 mol/L solution of sodium dichromate, will rusting occur?

If the solution was 1 mol/L, i could use my table of standard reduction potentials, and find the emf of the reaction, but 0.1 mol/L isnt standard conditions. How should i go about something like this?

you can use to table of standard potentials to roughly estimate what would occur, bu state that you used the standard potentials. this is generally not asked for you to find it, as it will generally be given to you
