General question on scores

Hello, I am a few weeks away from my MCAT and my best day ever score is where I would like it to be, but my practice exams aren't reflecting my best day ever score. I am reaching my target score for each individual section, but I am not scoring them all at the same time-- which causes my score on my...

Full length #8 Chem/Phys Question 29

Can someone please explain why RN I is incorrect? Or why is it that the answer is only focusing on the loss of function mutation? Is it just because gain of function mutations are rare-- or is there another explanation why RN I was excluded.


Thanks!

Full length #8 Question 3

Hello, How would you know whether CN- and AlCl3 is a lewis base or lewis acid. By looking at the first glance, I would have thought that CN- would have been my answer, because I wouldn't have thought that AlCl3 would want to accept electrons. In other words, what should I know to understand that AlC...

Electrolytic Cell Chemistry Qbank 2 Solutions, Acids, and Electrochemistry

Hello,


I just wanted to clarify the answer for question 36. It is asking for E°cell, or the standard-state cell potential and I thought that the equation for this is E(red) - E(cat). But the explanation shows addition of the two values.


Thank you,
Maria

Re: Lesson 14 MCAT Practice Passage (pg 400-401)

Hello again, But wouldn't that judgement be based on the readily available information that was given to the researchers from their questionnaire? I thought that because of the input from the questionnaire is what made the researchers make that judgement. Which is why I thought it was an availabilit...

Lesson 14 MCAT Practice Passage (pg 400-401)

Hello! I was hoping that you could clarify #18. We were given data that showed Joe "enjoy[ed] attending parties", and based on the question we had to choose whether the researchers were judging based on fundamental attribution error or availability heuristic. I chose availability heuristic because I...

Gas Chromatography vs Distillation

Hello!


I was just hoping if you can help me determine the difference between Gas Chromatography and Distillation?

I know both separate through boiling point with the lowest boiling point being separated out first. But then, why do one technique vs the other?


Thanks!

Hello Again, I was hoping if you could guide me into understanding how to graph zero, first, second, and third order reactions. I get confused when we have the reciprocal, ln, etc. Is there an easy way to understand how these reactions are graphed and what to look out for in questions on test day? T...
