Concentration Calc Help Watch

1. Can anyone help, how do i find the undiluted concentration of H2SO4, 100cm3 was diluted with water to make a 1.00 dm3 solution.

I know from my previous calc that the concentration of the diluted H2SO4 was 0.625 moldm3 (moles 0.0125 / vol 0.02 dm3)

but am struggling with the last bit

Your initial dilution was from 100 to 1000ml

This is a 10 fold (x10) dilution.

This makes a concentration ten times more dilute.

Hence the original solution was ten times more concentrated.

so if concentration of 0.02dm3 diluted was 0.625 moldm3 then the 100 would be 10 x 0.625 = 6.25 moldm3 conc

is that correct

If I understand you correctly...

You dilute a stock solution by a factor of 10

Then you test the concentration of a 20ml sample which turns out to be = 0.625 M

If so, yes.
