Introduction To Dilution Calculator:
The Dilution Calculator is a tool designed to assist users in determining the required volumes of a stock solution and a diluent needed to achieve a desired final concentration. Dilution is a common laboratory technique used to reduce the concentration of a solution while maintaining the proportion of solute.
Formula For Dilution Calculator:
The dilution formula used by the calculator is:
- 1V1 is the volume of the initial (stock) solution,
- 1C1 is the concentration of the initial (stock) solution,
- 2V2 is the volume of the diluent (usually a solvent like water),
- 2C2 is the desired final concentration.
Working Of The Dilution Calculator:
Initial Concentration (1C1): Users input the concentration of the stock solution in molarity.
Final Concentration (2C2): Users specify the desired final concentration in molarity.
Final Volume (2V2): Users provide the desired total volume of the final solution in milliliters.
- The function uses the dilution formula to calculate the required volume of the stock solution (1V1) and diluent (2−1V2−V1).
- The results are then displayed below the form.
The calculated volumes of the stock solution and diluent are displayed in the “Results” section.
The output includes the required volume of the stock solution and diluent to achieve the specified dilution.
The Dilution Calculator simplifies the process of diluting a solution by providing users with the precise volumes needed for a desired final concentration. It streamlines laboratory procedures, ensuring accurate and efficient solution preparations. Users can quickly determine the appropriate amounts of stock solution and diluent, saving time and resources in experimental setups that require specific concentrations.
