After completing this activity, students will be able 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 various pieces of glassware.
