How would you make 10L of HCl solution with 8.77% HCl in 100 mL from a 16M stock solution.
Here's what I have tried so far:
I put my percent HCl and got that down to match with the moles of HCl I had. Then I took 1.754% of 20 ml and converted that into liters. Then I found the molarity of the HCl I need to turn the 16 M solution into. Finally I did a dilution calculation to find the volume of water needed to make the 16 M stock solution into the starting percentage of HCl.
I am fairly certain that I am diluting with water, I don't know what else it would be with.
Is this the right way to go about this, or do I need to restart. Any help is much appreciated, and thanked for in advance!
