Watch this webinar to learn how to solve calorimetry problems on the MCAT. Learn how to approach this quantitative topic by understanding units, heat transfer, and heat capacity. You will also learn about common experimental setups, how to read and interpret data tables and graphs, and how to connect calorimetry to the basic principles of thermodynamics.

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Calculate heat transfers between systems and surroundings

  • Calculate energy involved in phase changes


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • The conceptual overlaps between thermodynamics and calorimetry

  • The difference between heat capacity and specific heat capacity


On the MCAT

  • Calorimetry is a very quantitative topic, and the numbers can be confusing and presented in different units (e.g. Joules for calories)


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.”
