# What Are Dilutions | Chemical Calculations | Chemistry | FuseSchool

In this video, we will look at what dilutions are in chemistry, how to calculate them using a very easy equation and even extending to multiple dilutions which are called serial dilutions. Dilution is the process of adding water (or another solvent) to a solution to decrease the concentration. So to dilute a solution means to add more solvent to a set amount of solute, therefore increasing the total amount of solution and decreasing the concentration. There is a very easy equation to help us calculate dilutions: M1V1 = M2V2. We will using this equation and work through some examples together in this video. Our teachers and animators come together to make fun & easy-to-understand videos in Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Maths & ICT. VISIT us at www.fuseschool.org, where all of our videos are carefully organised into topics and specific orders, and to see what else we have on offer. Comment, like and share with other learners. You can both ask and answer questions, and teachers will get back to you. These videos can be used in a flipped classroom model or as a revision aid.
