1. ## Another isolation problem

I need to isolate $\displaystyle Mdil$

The problem is $\displaystyle M dil *V dil= M conc * V conc$

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

$\displaystyle M dil=((M conc * V conc)/ (V dil))$

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

Thanks
Jason

Hi again,

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

It's just like dealing with numbers or letters.

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

3. Cool deal!

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