A solution is a homogeneous mixture of two or more substances, which may be solids,
liquids, gases, or a combination of these. A solvent is capable of dissolving another substance.
A dilution is a process of making weaker or less concentrated. A dilute or weakened condition.
There are also many other instances in a wastewater laboratory where the dilution of an acid,
a base, or a laboratory standard is required so that when the resulting solution is used in an analytical
procedure, it will help you attain the most accurate result.
This formula is good for almost any dilution needed in the laboratory, from phosphate and metal standards,
metal salt concentrations for jar testing, and acids and bases for sample pH adjustment.
There are some exceptions to the accuracy of this type of dilution. When you use an acid or base for titration
in analytical procedures, then you should standardize the acid or base after dilution to confirm its chemical strength.
Acids and bases tend to lose some of their strength, especially low concentration ones, when exposed to the atmosphere
or are diluted. However, using this formula to dilute the acid or base will get you very close to the desired concentration.
