Find volume of concentrated nitric acid (15.8 M) is needed to prepare 4.0 L of a 2.0 M solution
Answer & Explanation
M_a = 6.77M - the initial molarity (concentration)
V_a= 15.00 mL - the initial volume
M_b= 1.50 M - the desired molarity (concentration)
V_b= (15.00 + x mL) - the volume of the desired solution
59.7 mL needs to be added to the original 15.00 mL solution in order to dilute it from 6.77 M to 1.50 M
