Serial Dilution

Post by horsesrock71 » Sun Aug 29, 2010 10:43 pm

Goal: Create a 1:5 serial dilution series of a 200mg tablet of aspirin. Final volume should be approximately 500uL. Dilution should extend to 1:50000.

Question: How do you perform this serial dilution? Indicate what you will add to what and the concentration of chemical you will have at each step.

Goal: Create an answer to a homework question. The final product should display use of brain and of lessons learned.

Question: Why can't you do that by yourself?
