# Question #cf103

##### 1 Answer

The molarity of your diluted solution will be **0.175 M**.

When you *dilute* a solution, what you're essentially doing is keeping the number of moles of solute **constant**, and **increasing** the volume of the solution.

Since molarity is defined as moles of solute per liter of solution, increasing the volume of the solution while keeping the number of moles of solute *constant* will result in a **decreased** concentration.

This means that you have

In your case, you'll get

Essentially, you've diluted the solution by a *factor of 10*. Check this link out for more explanation on the **dilution factor**
