      Hi there,

      Just wondering – If 50uL of 2N NaOH is added to 50uL of H20 what is the final normality of NaOH? I am struggling with my basics. please help

      these are really basics. The amount is the same, volume is twice bigger -> concentration is twice smaller (half of original)

      In general, c1v1=c2v2 where:
      c1 = starting concentration
      v1 = starting volume
      c2 = ending concentration
      v2 = ending volume

      Jackbean already solved your particular problem, but you can use this equation to solve dilution problems in general.

      If 50uL of 2N NaOH is added to 50uL of H20 what is the final normality of NaOH?

      c1 = 2N
      v1 = 50 uL
      v2 = 100 uL
      solve for c2
