Ionization of Water in MCAT Acid Base Chemistry

Share This Post

Auto Ionization of Water in MCAT Acid Base ChemistryWater is a fascinating molecule to study, especially in reference to acid base chemistry.   Both amphoteric and amphiprotic (explained in video) it will undergo ionization to yield both an acid and a base.

This video breaks it down and covers important related calculations required for the MCAT.

  1. do you have any videos solutions,molar solubility and more general chemistry topics like that for the mcat?

I'd love to hear from you - Leave a comment below
