initial and final variables

Postby kevinolvera1j » Sat Nov 02, 2019 8:05 pm

Is there an easy way to identify which volumes and molarities are first and second, or is it just a matter of reading the question very carefully?

I would say just read the question carefully. Identify what it's asking you to find and see what information is already given.

Yes, I agree, there is unfortunately no "formula" for knowing which values come first and second in the equation. You must just read the question carefully. Good Luck!

Which ones are initial and which ones are final don't really matter, what matters is that the correct molarity is paired with the correct volume :)

Honestly, I always just label each number with an M1 or M2 or V1 or V2 in between the print just so I don't get confused, but you can write it out and find the missing value.
