A 12% solution is diluted 1:60. What is the volume and concentration of the final solution?
I started off with this
12(1/60) = 0.2%
However, how do I get the final volume and concentration?
Thanks

How can I tell you the final volume without knowing the initial volume?
You dilute it 60, meaning one part original,59parts solvent.
so the final volume is sixty times the original. The final concentration is .2percentmilliosmoles

A senseless question. You may start with 1 mL and dilute it 1 to 60 or you may start with a tub full and dilute it 1 to 60. So the final volume varies depending upon how much you start with. You have calculated the concentration.
