This webinar is the first part of our three-part series on acids and bases for MCAT chemistry. You will learn about the types of acids and bases, how to relate pKa/pKb to acid/base strength, and how to calculate pH/pOH from strong or weak acids/bases.
Simple Acids and Bases
At a glance
Calculate pH/pOH from strong or weak acids/bases
Relate pKa/pKb to acid/base strength
Predict protonation and deprotonation given pH
The different types of acids/bases
The strong acids/bases
pKas of amines and carboxylic acid groups
Log rules and simple acid/base equations
On the MCAT
Acid/base problems can be calculation and time intensive
Common applications include amino acids, drugs, and the buffer systems in our blood
Keep biochemistry and organic chemistry connections in mind
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.
