*Directions:*

Health care professionals need to know how to prepare solutions from stock solutions. A solution consists of a solute (concentrate) plus a solvent (liquid). A solute can be either liquid or a powder, and a solvent can be either water or NS. The resulting reconstituted solution will be a weaker strength than the original. The strength of the solution is represented by a ratio of solute to solvent. Many times health care workers have to prepare solutions for irrigations, tube feedings, infant formulas, or perhaps cleaning solutions. This worksheet will give the student practice making up different types and strengths of solutions.

Prepare a 100 mL of a strength solution of hydrogen peroxide (solute) using NS (solvent). This means one part hydrogen peroxide (solute) to three parts of NS (solvent).

*Know Want to Know*
