How to make 10% nitric acid? wouldnt it be 10 mL nitric acid + 100 mL of solvent, making it 10%? What molarity is used it to make 10% nitric acid?
10% v/v is 10 mL/100 mL soln but I think 10% HNO3 means 10g HNO3/100 mL solution unless you want 10% HNO3 mass percent which is 10 g HNO3/100 g solution. To any of these, however, you must know the concn of the HNO3 you're starting with.
