This webinar covers machines, an important area of MCAT physics. You will learn about the three different types of simple machines, equations for work and torque, and calculating mechanical advantage. You will also learn about the ways in which levers relate to questions regarding the human body.
At a glance
Calculate mechanical advantage
Incorporate force, energy, and torque to understand machines
Equations for work and torque
The 3 simple machines: inclined planes, levers, and pulleys
The 3 classes of levers: first, second, and third
On the MCAT
The MCAT uses a range of examples for all three types of machines, and sometimes combines two machines into a single problem
Levers are highly applicable to the human body
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.
