I don't have to study for the MCAT—I'm just curious about chemistry. 😂 Good resource, I learned a lot.

Robleh Omar says:

How is the reaction balanced when there are 5 Hydrogens on the Reactant side and 6 Hydrogen on the product side?

Hunter Harris says:

3:18:59 I am struggling with the empirical formula question. I don't see why you can figure that for every 2 hydrogens in H20, there is one hydrogen in the hydrocarbon. You use this 1mol H20 :2 mol H ratio to get the empirical number for hydrogen. We don't know the balanced equation, because there could be one or two hydrogens on the left side of the equation, or as many as ten so it would be wrong to assume that the ratio is 1:2

This guy knows everything wtf

Timmy Turner says:

Do you mind making a part 3 since those topics are ones that students generally struggle with? Thank you 🙂

Sergei Bouche says:

No calculator on the MCAT.


Pay the 40$ on his Vimeo for the month access for one that is 2 days…gets all videos.
I'm using it for MCAT and it's pretty great.

Sophia Emetu says:

This is very helpful! Can you do one for MCAT physics?

NcBaLL3r says:

46:40 you said it should be -1x but then put 11-x, what happened to the negative in front of the x? Shouldn’t it be 11-(-1x)

jyothi26rab says:

thanks am preparing for mcat exam am so nervous and sacred

Isaiah Rivera says:

You're a lifesaver bro

J Stenberg says:

NO calculator allowed on MCAT. Don't need to know any units besides SI. Very informative though!

Vyoma Patel says:

Where are the bullets points #16-24 all the acid/base stuff???

Anínesah Rodriguez says:

You sound like a really smart Mark Wahlberg 💖


Simon Londono says:

at about 1:50:00, i believe avogadros number is pertinent to the amount of particles in a mole. not in a gram

Alissa Jeanfreau says:

Why isn't NaCl considered a molecule if it is two or more different elements?

mnnysoad says:

Chase=bank robbery. Meaning that offense doesn't apply to his nitrous gas.

Zarmeen Khan says:

Thank you so much for this video. It is really helpful. Keep making such videos 😊

aayan rajput says:

is this helpful for entry test ??
