1) How do I prepare 2M nitric acid from 65% concentrated nitric acid?

2) How do I prepare 17% ammonia from 25% concentrated ammonia?

Please show calculation steps. Thanks.

Is that 65% and 17% w/w or w/v?
Do you have a density listed.

Assuming it is w/w as is the case for most acids and conc ammonia, can you show me the steps using 69% HNO3 and 28% ammonia?
I have density of 69% HNO3 as 1.42g/ml & 28% ammonia as 0.88g/ml.

    Hi, if I want to prepare a w/v solution, how do I prepare it? Thanks a lot.

    If it's the same 69% w/w with a density of 1.42, then we know it is 69g HNO3/100 g soln. 100 g soln has a volume of 70.4 mL so the solution is 69 g x 100/70.4 = 97.98 g/100 mL which I will round to 98 g/100 mL.
    We want, say, 10% w/v.
    10% w/v means 10 g HNO3/100 mL solution.
    We have 98 g/100 mL so we want to take
    100 mL x 10/98 = 10.2 mL of the concd solution and make to 100 mL final volume. Check my thinking.
