Concentrated sulfuric acid has sulfuric acid molecules where dilute sulfuric acid has sulfate ions and hydrogen ions. Water in the diluted solution acts as the ionization medium.

A concentrated solution can be weakened by adding more of the solution material (usually water) to dilute it.

Increase the amount of solvent.

a strong acid like HF, H2SO4...are stronger when they are concentrated, weaker acids are weak even they are concentrated

It is weaker (in comparison to sulfuric or nitric acids)

Because the acid in vinegar is acetic acid, a weak organic acid that disassociates in solution only to about 1%. Sulfuric acid disassociates almost 100% in solution, so the proton concentration, H3O +, is much more concentrated in a strong acid than in a weak one.

Uranus has a slightly weaker "surface gravity" compared with the Earth.

It won't have neutralised the acid but it will be weaker because it is less concentrated

No. A weaker acid mixed with a stronger acid would dilute the stronger acid. The resulting pH would be in between that of the mixed acids.

that's a tricky subject when you say 'weaker', i mean, compared to America's level- isn't every country they invade weaker?

You can dilute it by adding more solvent. Many solutions are in water. Therefore, adding more water will decrease the concentration. C = n/v Concentration is inversely proportional to volume and directly proportional to the amount of solute. An increase in volume or a decrease in the amount of solute, will decrease concentration.

No, stronger acids ionise much more as compared to the weaker acids. Hence they are more reactive.

The ice will melt to water and dilute whatever liquid it is in, so yes, your drink of whiskey will become weaker as this happens.

if you have an acid that is water soluble, you can dilute it with water. basically just add a base until it is the pH you want. Dilute a stronger acid in water or nonreactive base, citric acids in fruit like oranges are acids in themselves and are considered a weaker acid. Josh_af

If in pure water, then the acid will dilute and it's pH will grow ever closer to 7, meaning it will be a weaker acid.Very little, really - it is merely diluted, so it is not quite as strong when mixed with water. The more water, the weaker the acid solution becomes.
