The concentration of hydronium ions decreases when an acid is diluted because on adding water the H+ ions of the acid and hydroxyl ions of water react to form water molecules and the concentration of hydronium ions decreases. When an acid is diluted, then the concentration of hydronium ionsdecreases.
