This webinar on salts and buffers is the second part in our three-part series on acid/base chemistry for the MCAT. You will learn about the three different types of salts, how to identify a buffer system, and how to calculate and predict pH depending on the buffer used. We will focus on the buffer system of the blood.

On the MCAT
MCAT salts and buffers questions can be identification-based or calculation and time intensive
Minimize errors in unit conversions
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.
