c1 v1 is a dilution formula that works on the principle that the initial concentration of something times the volume it takes up, equals the final concentration. This makes it an excellent equation for dilutions in the lab and a lifesaver for anyone who wants to dilute something to make it more useful or easier to work with.

#### What do the symbols C1, V1, and V2 represent?

The symbols C1 and V1 represent concentrations, such as grams per liter (g/L), moles per liter (mol/L) or moles per decimeter cube (mol/dm3). They are usually measured in mL and L units, with 1 mL representing 1 g/L and 1 L being equivalent to 1 dm3.

#### How do I calculate the concentration of a solution?

The concentration of a solution is the amount of solute present in a given volume. The dilution formula, C1V1 = C2V2, can be used to calculate the concentration of a solution after it has been diluted by adding a solvent.

#### What are the different units used in a dilution formula?

Dilution is the decrease of the concentration of solutes in a solution. Dilution is usually measured in mL, but it can also be measured in L or dm3.

#### What are the differences between dilution and dilution factor?

Dilution and dilution factor are very common terms in chemistry. Dilution refers to the decrease in concentration of a solute while dilution factor is the ratio of the final volume of the solution to the initial volume.
