“Don’t drink water while studying. Chemistry says that concentration decreases on adding water”

"Don’t drink water while studying because chemistry says that concentration decreases on adding water” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The joke is that “concentration” to a student means to direct attention, but in chemistry, “concentration” is about dilution.

“Don鈥檛 drink water while studying because due to dilution, ‘Concentration decreases’..!!! #Justsaying” was posted on Twitter by desihitler on April 24, 2010. “Don’t drink water while studying ....bcoz concentration decreases on adding water.....don’t take it seriously it just a joke..........” was posted on Twitter by Swapnil Khopkar 馃嚠馃嚦 on January 14, 2011. “Don’t drink water while studying, bcoz, Chemistry says—CONCENTRATION decreases on adding water” was posted on Twitter by dr么le/c贸mico/Hu谩j墨 on March 19, 2011.

The 2010 and 2011 tweets are mostly from India. The saying possibly originated on an image.

The joke is potentially dangerous if taken seriously. If someone studies without drinking something, that person could become ill.
