When it comes to acid base calculations on the MCAT, weak bases are potentially the most confusing.
Not only do you have to convert from pOH to pH, but you may also find yourself having to find the kb from a given ka to start the process.
And worst of all, you learned all this using the quadratic equation in your gen-chem course.
This video simplifies all that so that you can solve pH/pOH for weak bases Quickly and WITHOUT a calculator on your MCAT.
