Gravitational and Electric Fields

Gravitational and Electric Fields

This webinar on gravitational and electric fields connects two areas of MCAT physics: mechanics and electromagnetism. You will learn about the universal law of gravitation and Coulomb’s law, as well as how to organize your equations and use units to your advantage.

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Relate gravitational concepts to electricity ones

  • Be able to organize equations, but also (if need be) to derive them last minute through units or logic


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • The difference between force, field, energy, and potential

  • The units for each of the above concepts

  • UThe universal law of gravitation and Coulomb's law


On the MCAT

  • While few of these concepts come up in the medical practice, the MCAT still tests them rigorously

  • Physics is hard! Find a way to organize your equations

  • Know your units


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.”
