A dilute solution has a low concentration of the solute compared to the solvent. The opposite of a dilute solution is a concentrated solution, which has high levels of solute in the mixture. More »

For dilute solutions, convert molarity to ppm by multiplying the molarity by the molecular mass of the solute, then multiplying the result by 1000. More »
