    Another isolation problem

    I need to isolate Mdil

    The problem is M dil *V dil= M conc * V conc

    The dil, conc are suppose to be under the capital letters.

    I would imagine you need to divide V dil from the left side to get M dil alone
    which leaves you with

    M dil=((M conc * V conc)/ (V dil))


    Is this right? These values are foreign to me so I doubt myself.



    Thanks

    Hi again,

    It's correct (under the condition that V_{dil} (look at the code to put letters under) doesn't equal 0).

    It's just like dealing with numbers or letters.

    \frac ab=\frac cd \implies ad=bc, etc... (with b,d \neq 0)

    Cool deal!

    Chemistry is new to me, so even though the math is right, the answer isn't familiar.
