# Does dilution change the concentration?

##### 1 Answer

It does so absolutely.

#### Explanation:

$\text{Concentration}$ $=$ $\text{Amount of stuff"/"Volume that stuff is dissolved in}$.

Typically, we use $\text{molar concentrations}$ $=$ $\text{moles of stuff"/"volume of solution}$.

If we increase the volume by dilution, we are inevitably going to REDUCE the concentration. Capisce?
