Which one is diluted?

Depending upon the proportion of solute, a solution can be, Dilute solution….Solution concentration.

Concentrated solution Dilute solution

What is my dilution factor?

A dilution factor is the total volume of a sample plus diluent after dilution divided by the inital volume of sample. 100 mL of final volume ÷ 2 mL original volume of sample = 50 dilution factor.
