Empirical Formula and Molecular Formula Calculations

Empirical Formula vs Molecular Formula Calculations for the MCAT by Leah4sci

Navigating through empirical formulas versus molecular formulas will help you in conversions, unknowns, and so many exam problems. This video explains the definitions, similarities, and differences between an atom’s empirical formula and its molecular formula. You will also see when the empirical and molecular formulas are the same, and a percent by mass example! (Watch […]

Molecular Weight and Formula Weight Calculations

Stoichiometry & Reactions 2 Molecular Weight by Leah Fisch

Molecular weight and formula weight calculations are key to understanding the specifics behind any MCAT reaction and experiment. This includes both atomic mass unit and grams per mole calculations. And maybe even the conversion from AMU to g/mol. This video shows you how to find molecular weight in AMUs, grams per mole, and formula weight […]
