Hi all,

another laboratory controversy reigns!
When making up a buffer solution from salts what is the best practice: To
measure out the dry salt, place in beaker and then add the required volume
of water (ie up to 1liter) OR Measure out the 1liter and add the salts to
( I am asking in the context of making a 10x buffer soln, where the solute
weighs up to 150g)

Is there in fact any difference??
