Re: AAMC FL 4 review video

I have not heard of anything like this in the pipeline, sorry. I will definitely pass this request on though!

Re: Current Carrying Wires and Magnetic Fields

For general reference/to maybe read first: http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/magnetic/wirfor.html For predicting forces: You've predicted magnetic fields, not forces. The magnetic field generated by wire 1 will generate a Lorentz force on the electrons in wire 2 and vice versa. These force...

Re: C/P Section Bank Part 2

Hey, sorry this has been sitting here for a week. This forum has been eating more and more of my replies (and I've definitely been logged in!), but here goes again: 17. Be careful here. The voltmeter reads zero when R3 is adjusted. This doesn't mean that the change in voltage for the circuit is zero...

3. I'm pretty sure I answered this for you elsewhere, but just in case: There are expressions for boiling point elevation and depression, but not really one to predict the boiling point. The relevant concept here however is that the boiling point is the condition under which the vapor pressure is eq...

Re: Physics Qbank 1 Q19

The flaw in your assumption is that both ropes are contributing equally to the vertical equilibrium. So you are saying: tension_vertical1 = tension_vertical2 This is simply not true. Imagine a more extreme scenario - for instance hanging straight below the attachment point of one rope, while the oth...

Re: Biology, MCAT QBook question 248

Right, the presence of sunlight isn't really what interests you: You're just taking note that they don't seem to depend entirely on sunlight to generate energy, meaning both forms of phototrophy are out. The final part of the explanation is a little off - growing in the presence of oxygen has little...

Re: Biology, MCAT QBook question 261-268

261. If host antibodies bound host proteins, the host would suffer from autoimmunity. Depending on how and where this occurs, that makes for either a poor quality of life or is fatal. Since this is a virus, it could potentially express a host protein on its surface. As for answer C: Because it is ma...

Re: Advice on Testing Schedule

I think with your volume of FLs, you'll be fine either way. The only real novelty to the shortened format is the shortened lunch break - so plan to simulate that for sure! If you do want to take one short FL, try an NS one you haven't done yet. But 5 weeks isn't that long - so maybe get started on y...

2. Ubiquinone is a quinone derivative and a key intermediate in the ETC. Therefore knowing the fundamental structures of quinones is key background knowledge. About ubiquinone, you only really need to know that it features the central ring (benzoquinone + junk) that can be reduced to an aromatic one...
