If you dilute a solution that is, for example, 1 mL to 10 mL, will [H3O+] and [OH-] both be divided by 10? My question is based off 6B.11.

I'm not sure but I'm guessing that's true? I am assuming that the solute is causing dissociation of H2O and I'm thinking since there is a reduction in solute moles for a given volume of solution, there will also be less dissociation of water into [H3O+] and [OH-].
