Solution :-

While diluting an acid, it is recommended that the acid should be added to water and not water to the acid because if water is added to a concentrated acid, it releases a huge amount of heat which may result in an explosion and can cause acid burns on the face, clothes, and body parts. Hence it is safe to add acid to water but not water to acid.
