In the first part of our series on circuits and capacitors, we discuss standard resister circuits. Circuits are relevant when it comes to the circulatory system, skin resistance, medical machines, and the cellular membrane. Watch this webinar to learn how to read circuit diagrams, break down series and parallels resisters, and to calculate with Ohm’s law.
At a glance
Interpret circuit diagrams
Calculate Req, current and voltage for total circuit and individual resistors
Make connections between fluid and circuits, pressure and voltage, flow and current
Series versus parallel circuits
Other circuit elements like voltmeter, ammeter, step up and step down transformers
On the MCAT
On the whole, the MCAT will test basic circuits, but once in a while an advanced problem will be thrown in (example problem 5 of this deck!)
Circuits can be easily applied to fluids and the circulatory system so please refer back to our circulatory system 2 webinar for a refresher!
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.
