Question

What is the difference between diluted acid and concentrated acid


Solution

Before saying the difference we neeed to know how concentration of acid is defined. The concentration of an acid is a measure of the amount of available acid ions dissolved in a solvent. Concentration can be measured in moles, parts per million or percentage. The concentration is a ratio of the solute to solvent content of a solution. 

Now we look into the difference between diluted acid and concentrated acid

Concentrated acid:
  • A concentrated acid is the one which contains very large amount of acid than water in the solution.
  • They have high numbers of available ions.
  • They have higher mass percentage in the solution.
  • Examples : Concentrated sulphuric acid - 98% by mass
Diluted Acids
  • A dilute acid is the acid which contains greater concentrations of water in it.
  • They have lower mass percentage in the solution.
  • The concentrated acid can be diluted by adding it to water
  • They have low numbers of available ions in solution 
  • Example : Vinegar which is dilute acetic acid
