Acids and Bases, Part 2

Acids and Bases, Part 2

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.

At a glance


Essential skills

  • 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


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • Definition and purpose of buffers

  • Henderson-Hasselbalch equation

  • Titration purpose and types

  • Titration curves for polyprotic acids

  • Indicators


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.

“These 30 minute FREE, live videos conducted each Friday helped me get through the pandemic. Weike is an exceptional tutor, and being able to ask questions after she’s done was magnificent. These webinars have even helped me in class subjects such as Biochemistry.  I’m looking forward to starting one-on-one tutoring with Cambridge Coaching, and I’m already feeling confident about taking the MCAT when the time comes.”
