Translational motion is the motion of an object at its center of mass from one position to another. In this webinar, we will discuss basic translational motion concepts like vectors, units, key translational motion equations and how to apply them to 1-D translational motion as well as projectile motion.

On the MCAT
As a whole, physics, especially mechanics, is not high yield. Still, it's often a source of panic for students. MCAT mechanics questions are rarely that involved or passage-oriented. Most are discrete.
Doing too much math for a physics problem is usually not a good sign.
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.
