Solution preparation and dilutions

Concentration and Dilution

After completing this activity, students will be able to: Convert between different types of concentration units. Calculate the final concentration of a solution following dilution(s). Determine the original amount of an analyte in a sample following quantitative sample preparation.

Dilutions and Volumetric Glassware

Students learn to: Determine volumes and concentrations in dilution calculations. Convert between different concentration units (e.g., ppm to M). Interpret a procedure for making a particular solution and assess the advantages of different dilution schemes. Choose the appropriate piece of glassware to ensure the desired level of precision of a particular solution. Compare the tolerance of…
