This webinar is the second part of our two-part series on acid/base chemistry. We will reinforce the salt and buffer concepts introduced in the prior webinar, how to recognize and successfully answer titration questions, and review the three different types of titrations. We will also cover how to read titration graphs and perform calculations to determine the concentration and identity of an analyte.
Acids and Bases, Part 2
At a glance
Identify and calculate with buffers
Read titration graphs and identify equivalence and half equivalence points
Calculate unknown concentration and identity of analyte from titration curves
Definition and purpose of buffers
Titration purpose and types
Titration curves for polyprotic acids
On the MCAT
The MCAT will expect you to apply your buffer knowledge to the blood buffer system and your titration skills to biological techniques such as ITC.
You will still need your log skills for the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation.
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
