    Measure the mass of a solute.
    Bash it into a volumetric flask.
    Add some solvent, shake to dissolve.
    Make up the solvent to the mark on the flask, ensuring the bottom of the meniscus is in line with the mark.
    Shake.

    but dont we need to kno the concentration of the standard solution well ???

    You know the mass of the solute. You know the Mr of the solute. Therefore you know the amount.

    You know the volume of the solution. Therefore you know the concentration.

    The solution in the volumetric flask IS the standard solution.

    Don't forget that not all compounds can be used to make a standard solution. The solute must have certain characteristics to be considered for a primary standard solution:

    1. It must be available in a highly pure form (Analar, for example)
    2. It must be stable in the environment (not hygroscopic, deliquescent or efflorescent) and aqueous solution.
    3. It should have a relatively high molar mass (preferably)
    4. It must react quantitatively with the required compounds.
    5. It must be soluble (yes, obvious, I know)

    Seconday standards must themselves be determined using primary standard solutions before use.
