Magnetic Fields

Magnetic Fields

Watch this webinar to learn about electromagnetism and magnetic fields. You will learn how to master the equations related to magnetic fields, and how to use the right-hand rules to predict magnetic fields and forces. You will also review important applications of magnetic fields, such as MRIs.

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Predict magnetic fields and forces using the two right hand rules

  • Manipulate equations with magnetic fields and forces

  • Apply Lenz's law


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • The effects of magnetic fields at the nuclear and molecular level

  • The difference between magnetic and electric fields

  • The application of magnetic fields to machines like mass spec, NMR, and MRI


On the MCAT

  • The magnetic field is one of the hardest fields to understand, but thankfully the tests's focus is mostly conceptual, instrument-based, and not as calculation-heavy as electric and gravitational fields

  • Stay calm; you don't need to have taken an advanced physics class


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.”
