For most students, MCAT Physics is the most difficult of the sciences required for this exam. Perhaps because it is so math and equation heavy, or perhaps because physics is less intuitive compared to the other MCAT sciences.

My goal is to help you break down and simplify these concepts with the tutorials, videos and cheat sheets below. This is a work in progress with new resources added regularly (time permitting).

Before you jump into MCAT physics review and memorization of equations (use my MCAT Cheat Sheet collection to help), make sure you know HOW to properly memorize with the Active Writing Method.

*Worried about the non-calculator math component? See my **MCAT Math Without A Calculator Series**.*

Physics will show up on the first section of the MCAT: Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems.

The full list of MCAT Physics Topics can be found on the AAMC Website here.

## MCAT Translational Motion – Vectors and Kinematics

Vectors and kinematics are KEY to understanding physics on the MCAT. This series will help you build a solid foundation, starting with an introduction to translational motion, calculations with vectors and their components.

You’ll learn how to calculate key components in kinematics including displacement, velocity, acceleration, free fall and projectile motion.

You’ll also learn how to quickly figure out WHICH kinematic equations to use.

Follow along with the MCAT Kinematics Cheat Sheet.

## MCAT Physics – Forces

Forces are the foundation to advanced physics concepts. This series will walk you through Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion, force equilibrium in free body diagrams, Normal force, gravitational force, static and kinetic friction, with even more to come.

And of course, the MCAT Forces Cheat Sheet to follow along with.

## How to Memorize MCAT Equations

This article explains how to *know* the equations,

be *confident* in the equations, and use them *proficiently*!
