Hello everyone,
My first time posting here. I hope someone can help.
In writing a scientific report method would you say
"The concentration of the solute 4-Nitrophenol (4-NP) was present 10 mM while 4-Nitrophenyl Phosphate (4-NPP) was present at 2.5 mM which were diluted in 0.5 M Tris buffer at pH 9.0."
or
"200 folds of 4-Nitrophenol and 50 folds of 4-Nitrophenol Phosphate were diluted into two separate cuvettes with a 0.5 M of Tris Buffer at pH 9.0"

The total volume of each cuvette is 1 mL. And I diluted 5 uL of 4-NP and 20 uL 4-NPP.

In general you want to use as few words as possible and write it in as simply as possible. Both of these sentences are okay but they could be better, have a go at writing them a different way in as few words as possible and in a way that is very clear
