Enter the initial concentration and dilution factor into the calculator to determine the final concentration after a 10-fold dilution. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## 10 Fold Dilution Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the final concentration after a 10-fold dilution.

C2 = C1 / D

Variables:

- C2 is the final concentration after dilution C1 is the initial concentration before dilution D is the dilution factor (in this case, 10 for a 10-fold dilution)

To calculate the final concentration after a 10-fold dilution, divide the initial concentration by the dilution factor.

## What is a 10 Fold Dilution?

A 10-fold dilution is a process in which a substance is diluted to one-tenth of its original concentration. This is typically done by taking one part of the substance and adding nine parts of a diluent, such as water or another solvent. The result is a solution that is 10 times less concentrated than the original. This process can be repeated multiple times to achieve even lower concentrations.

## How to Calculate 10 Fold Dilution?

The following steps outline how to calculate a 10 Fold Dilution.

- First, determine the initial concentration before dilution (C1).
- Next, determine the dilution factor (D). In this case, the dilution factor is 10 for a 10-fold dilution.
- Next, use the formula C2 = C1 / D to calculate the final concentration after dilution (C2).
- Finally, calculate the 10 Fold Dilution by inserting the values of C1 and D into the formula and solving for C2.
- After calculating the result, check your answer for accuracy.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

Initial concentration before dilution (C1) = 50

Dilution factor (D) = 10
