# Dilution of Stock Solution Calculator

Avail the free online Dilution of Stock Solution Calculator to determine the amount of dilute required inorder to obtain the stock solution needed. All you have to do is enter the specified inputs stock concentration, desired concentration, desired final volume and tap on the calculate button to fetch the volume of concentration required.

### How to Calculate Dilution?

You can estimate the desired volume by using the dilution formula i.e. **C _{1}*V_{1} = C_{2}*V_{2}**

- where C
- C
_{2}is the concentration of stock solution - V
_{1}is the desired final volume - V
_{2}is the required volume

_{1}is the concentration of desired solution

### Units of Concentration

In general, units of volume is cubed units of length or liters. However, if you are looking out on what are the units of concentration then you can use molar or mass concentration.

- Molar Concentration c is nothing but the amount of substance in moles in given volume of a substance. It is denoted by Unit Molar Symbol where 1 M = 1 mol/liter
- Mass Concentration ρ is amount of substance in grams in given volume of a substance. It is denoted by gram/liter

To obtain the mass concentration of solution multiply molar concentration and molar mass of substance i.e. ρ =c*M

**Example 1:**Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution for the stock concentration of 12 mM, desired volume of 15ml and desired concentration of 60 μM.

**Solution:**

- Desired Concentration C
- Stock Concentration C
_{2}= 12mM - Desired Final Volume v
_{1}= 15 ml - Volume of diluted solution v
_{2}= ?

_{1}= 60μM

Apply the given values in the formula we have C_{1}*V_{1} = C_{2}*V_{2} = 6060μM*15 ml = 12mM*?

Reducing further we get the volume of diluted solution as 0.0001 liters
