# Given 30 mL of H2SO4 diluted up to 500 mL, what would be the percentage v/v?

## Question:

Given 30 mL of {eq}H_2SO_4 {/eq} diluted up to 500 mL, what would be the percentage v/v?

## Volume Percentage:

The volume percentage of a solute in liquid state is volume of solute in total volume of solution. The more the value of percentage of volume, less diluted is solution and vice-versa.

## Answer and Explanation: 1

Given data:

• The volume of sulfuric acid is 30 mL.
• The total volume of solution is 500 mL.

The v/v percentage of sulfuric acid is calculated as shown below.

{eq}\begin{align*} {\rm{Volume\% }} = \frac{{{\rm{Volume of solute}}}}{{{\rm{Volume of solution}}}} \times 100\\ = \frac{{30\;{\rm{mL}}}}{{500\;{\rm{mL}}}} \times 100\\ = 6\% \end{align*} {/eq}

Therefore, the v/v percentage of sulphuric acid is 6%.
