This page provides info on how much concentrated acid or base is required to make up 1 liter of 1M dilute acid or base.
A Table showing the no. of mls, percentage, SG, and Molarity of the acids is given.
Quantities used are approximate and acceptable for practical qualitative analysis. Reagents tend to be hygroscopic or volatile.|
||To make 1M soln
||58 mls / liter
||Use 86 mls / lliter
||61 mls / liter
||56 mls / liter(1M)
28 mls / liter (1N)
||69 mls / liter (1M)
Use 71 mls / liter (1M)
||111 mls /liter (1M)
||37 mls /liter (1M)
||143 mls /liter (1M)
|85.5mls /liter (1M)
106 mls /liter (1M)
||22.5 mls /liter (1N)

Dilute 116 mls.of the concentrated acid to 1 litre of water. (2M)
Dilute 172 mls. of the concentrated acid to 1 litre with water.(2M)
Dilute 122mls. of the concentrated acid to 1 liter with water. (2M)
Pour 56 mls.of the concentrated acid slowly and with constant stirring into about 500mls. of water, cool, and dilute to 1 litre. (1M)
Prepare a saturated solution of SO2 in water. 6-7% by weght.

||69.0 mls / liter
|Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH)
||51.5 mls / lliter
|Potassium hydroxide (KOH)
||85.5 mls / liter
