Gas is one of the four fundamental states of matter. In this webinar, we will discuss ideal and non-ideal gas laws in both graphical and mathematical contexts. We will also learn about gas equilibrium, gas behavior at the gas-liquid interface and applications of gases to biology (respiratory system) and to organic chemistry (gas chromatography).

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Estimate, manipulate and calculate with the various gas laws

  • Be able to identify gas laws mathematically and graphically

  • Predict non-ideal gas behavior

  • Read phase diagrams


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • Temperatures and pressure scales, standard state vs STP

  • Maxwell-Baltzmann distribution

  • Gas laws, ideal gas laws, non-ideal deviations

  • Vapor pressure and Dalton's Law

  • Gas equilibrium

  • Gas behavior at the gas-liquid interface


On the MCAT

  • Gases have wide applications to other gen chem concepts, physics, biology, and organic chemistry

  • Out of all areas of study, gases also have the most named laws. Be sure to memorize these laws. Knowing which scientist is association with which law is an easy, but completely recall-based question!


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.”
