## Question:

Explain in words how you would prepare {eq}\rm 250\ ml {/eq} of a {eq}\rm 3.000\ M {/eq} solution of {eq}\rm Ba(OH)_2 {/eq} starting from a two liter bottle of {eq}\rm 12.000\ M\ Ba(OH)_2 {/eq}.

## Dilution Equation:

The dilution equation relates the initial and final concentrations and volumes of a certain solution that is diluted. The equation for dilution is given below.

{eq}\rm C_1V_1~=~C_2V_2 {/eq}

Where:

*C1*is the concentration of the initial solution*C2*is the concentration of the final solution*V1*is the initial volume of the solution.*V2*is the final volume of the solution.
