In this webinar, you will learn how to understand solubility in terms of thermodynamics and equilibrium, as well as how to classify different salts based on their solubility. You will also learn about the common ion effect, how to calculate molar solubility from Ksp, and how to answer questions about solubility and precipitate formation.

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Classify salts in terms of solubility

  • Calculate molar solubility from Ksp

  • Determine whether a precipitate will form based on molar solubility or Ksp


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • The common ion effect

  • Solubility in terms of equilibrium, thermodynamics, and biological applications


On the MCAT

  • Gen chem concepts like solubility can quickly become calculation heavy and time consuming, so having a strategy is key

  • The MCAT is not the nicest with units - be comfortable with scientific notation and 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.

“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.”
