Mole calculations can be used to calculate the concentration (C) and volume (V) of solutions. Using the diagram above, the relationship between C and V can be seen (on the triangle on the right hand side). The video below goes through some examples of calculating the concentration and volume of reactants and products, based on balanced equations. Calculating C and V from equations using the concept of mole comes up frequently in the SQA Higher chemistry course.  All of the equations in the video are balanced. Work your way through these examples, which by the end you will hopefully have a much better understanding.
