# How many ml of water should I add to a 5 ml NaOCl ( 5.25%) to make it 1.0%?

## Question:

How many ml of water should I add to a 5 ml NaOCl ( 5.25%) to make it 1.0%?

## Diluting Solutions:

Solutions can be diluted by adding more water or its corresponding solvent to a solution. This increases the volume of the solution, and without the increase in the amount of solute, resulting to the decrease in the concentration of the solute in the solution.
