You don't add water to acid....because if you spit in acid it spits back...

Explanation:

If you add acid OR base to water, CLEARLY you reduce the concentration of the acid or base....

$\text{Concentration"="Moles of acid"/"Volume of solution}$...

And so adding acid to water WILL clearly INCREASE the solution volume. The concentration of the acid will DECREASE....
