Successive dilutions of a solution

A serial dilution is used to prepare solutions containing amounts(grams)of chemicals so small that they would be impossible to measure with ordinary balance. If 5.00ml of a .10 Molar salt (NaCl) solution is diluted to 500ml,then diluted to 500ml of another new solution, what is its concentration. If 5.00 ml of this solution is diluted to 500ml, what is the concentration of the final solution? How many grams of salt are in the final solution.

Solution Summary

The solution explains how to calculate the final concentration after successive dilution processes.
