How to dilute down a solution? watch

1. *Not doing a titration, just using buriets*

Say I have a buriet filled with solution x at 0.1 mol dm-3, and another filled with distilled water. I need to use these to add 10cm3 of solution x at reduced concentrations (0.09-0.001), how can I work out how much of solution x and how much water to add?

You fill up burette with water, then from your calculation, M1V1 = M2V2, where M = different molarity(concentration) and V = volume, usually, you add a specific amount of water to lesser of the concentrated solution, so that its concentration decreases.
