serial dilutions C1 x V1 = C2 x V2
serial dilutions C1 x V1 = C2 x V2
Hello,
The question is calculate the amount of stock solution you need to make 5 mL of a 0.1mM solution from a 1.0 M stock, using the formula of C1 x V1 = C2 x V2. I know I should first change the 1.0 M to 1000.0 mM and the c stands for concentration and the v stands for volume. Which would be the C1, the V1, C2 and V2.  I always get confused with that part. Would the 5mL
