# If 7 mL of water is added to 3 mL of a 0.50 M KOH solution, the concentration of KOH is changed to.

## Question:

If 7 mL of water is added to 3 mL of a 0.50 M KOH solution, the concentration of KOH is changed to _____.

## Diluting Solutions:

One way to dilute solutions is to add more volume of the solvent to the existing solution. This way, the volume of the solution changes but the amount of solute remains the same. The increase in the volume relates to the decrease in the concentration.
