Reactions and Stoichiometry in MCAT Chemistry

Stoichiometry & Reactions SquareThis Tutorial Video Series will guide you through the content you need to master for MCAT Chemistry Stoichiometry and Reactions. This series will help you master AAMC Content Category 4E!

This series includes everything from basic overviews of molecules and calculations, to advanced reactions, balancing and more.

You’ll also learn the most important aspect, the math and shortcuts behind this topic. Still rusty? Start with the MCAT Math Without A Calculator and MCAT Conversions tutorial series.

It will cover everything from terminology, step by step explanations, and practice problems!

My Stoichiometry & Reactions Practice Quiz will be coming soon!

Video 1: Intro to Reactions & Stoichiometry

Introduction to Reactions and Stoichiometry in MCAT General Chemistry Tutorial Video by Leah FischStart with a quick overview of key terms and concepts to build a proper foundation for the remainder of this series.

If you don’t understand the terms, you’ll have trouble with the related math.  Can’t skip this one!

Video 2: Calculating Molecular Weight and Formula WeightStoichiometry & Reactions 2 Molecular Weight by Leah Fisch

This video will show you how to find molecular weight in AMU, grams per mole, formula weight conversions, and more.

Best of all, you’ll learn how to do this QUICKLY,

Despite not being allowed to use a Calculator on the MCAT.

Video 3: Empirical Formula and Molecular Formula CalculationsEmpirical Formula vs Molecular Formula Calculations for the MCAT by Leah4sci

This video explains the definitions, similarities, and differences between an atom’s empirical formula and its molecular formula.

You’ll also learn how to calculate each with simple and easy-to-apply logic.

Video 4: Molarity, Molality, and Molar MassMolarity Molality Molar Mass Shortcut MCAT General Chemistry by Leah Fisch

Learn the definitions, calculations, and how the difference between molarity and molality.

Also learn a time saving shortcut to quickly interconvert between molarity and molality on the MCAT.

Video 5: Percent By Mass CompositionStoichiometry & Reactions 5 Percent by Mass Composition Leah4sci

Learn ONE rule for all these types of questions!

This video makes this concept simple. You’ll see WHY and HOW these equations work, instead of memorizing all the different percent formulas.

Video 6: Mole and Avogadro’s NumberMole and Avogadro's Number in MCAT General Chemistry by Leah4sci

This video covers the definition of Moles as well as  an illustration showing the logic of moles in general chemistry.

You’ll also see how to easily and quickly convert from and to them and other units on the MCAT!
