Help with Equilibrium Lab Problem

PLEASE READ THE INFO FIRST THEN HELP ANSWER MY QUESTION AT THE END THANKS.

This lab consisted of two parts.
The first part procedure :

1. Use a buret to transfer exactly 4.0 mL of 0.0025 M solution of Fe(NO3)3 (in 0.10 M HNO3) to a 100-mL volumetric flask.

2. Now obtain about 100 mL of 0.10 M HNO3 solution in a clean, dry 250 mL beaker. Add the HNO3 solution to the volumetric flask until the flask is filled halfway, stopper it and mix thoroughly. Add more 0.10 M HNO3 until the bottom of the meniscus almost coincides with the 100-mL mark on the flask. Add the last 0.5 mL of 0.10 M HNO3 from a medicine dropper to make sure that you do not go about the mark. Put the stopper in and miz thoroughly.

NOTE: Remember you have made a dilution here and will make further dilutions in test tubes 1-5.

So we added these volumes to obtain the equilibrium reaction :

Test Tube #1
1.0 mL Fe(NO3)3
5.0 mL 1.0 M KSCN
4.0 mL 0.10 M HNO3

Test Tube #2
2.0 mL Fe(NO3)3
5.0 mL 1.0 M KSCN
3.0 mL 0.10 M HNO3

Test Tube #3
3.0 mL Fe(NO3)3
5.0 mL 1.0 M KSCN
2.0 mL 0.10 M HNO3

Test Tube #4
4.0 mL Fe(NO3)3
5.0 mL 1.0 M KSCN
1.0 mL 0.10 M HNO3

Test Tube #5
5.0 mL Fe(NO3)3
5.0 mL 1.0 M KSCN
0.0 mL 0.10 M HNO3


The question is asking us to find the concentration of Fe(SCN)^2+ which will be the same as the starting concentration of Fe(NO3)3.

My question is : what is the starting concentration of Fe(NO3)3 ??
To find the concentration of Fe(SCN)^2+ I would just use the formula M1V1 = M2V2 right?
But then I don't know what to use for the initial concentration of Fe(NO3)3 if... it has been diluted in HNO3 ??

I don't quite understand.

I used 0.0025 M as the initial concentration for Fe(NO3)3 but now I am not so sure.

Chemistry help forum is the forum where we can get all the information related to the chemistry and chemical formula as well as we have to use https://www.analyzedu.com/writing-se...om-review.html this information in the study to get success in the experiments and in product making.
