Step 1

First Solution

An aqueous solution is prepared by dissolving 0.415 g of KMnO4 in 250 mL. The molarity of the solution can be calculated as,

Step 2

Second Solution

From the above solution, 25 mL (V1) of sample is taken which is having a molarity of 0.010 M (M1) and is diluted to 100 mL (V2). It is required to calculate the molarity of the diluted sample, which can be calculated as,

Step 3

Third Solution

Now from the second solution, 10 mL (V2) is taken which is having a molarity of 0.0025 M (M2) and is d...
