Fluids at Rest

Fluids at Rest

This is the first webinar in our two-part series on fluids. You will learn about the different units of pressure, how to calculate pressure, and how to read pressure from a manometer or barometer. In addition, you will review problems related to density, specific gravity, and buoyancy force.

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Calculate gauge pressure and total pressure

  • Calculate buoyancy force

  • Read pressure measurements off a manometer or barometer


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • The different units for pressure

  • The density of water and what specific gravity is


On the MCAT

  • Fluids is an area that overlaps heavily with the circulatory and respiratory systems, so passages will try to test both

  • Fluids can also overlap with circuits


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.”
