NS FL #4, Chemistry/Phys Q 43

Hi! Just to make sure I understand this Qs correctly ---- i'm thinking of this as E at start of roller coaster = E at the loop; hence mgH = mg(h of loop = 2r) + KE at loop (0.5mv^2). Given the loop, I get that the acceleration there is centripetal a. However, why would we equate this centripetal a t...

NS FL #4, bio Q53

Hi! Can some explain why we understand the DNA diameter to "double" as explained here: Once coiled around the protein, we can assume (without getting into unnecessary surface area calculations) that a single layer of DNA strand will be wrapped around the protein (strand thickness = 2 nm), meaning we...

Re: NL FL #4, Chemistry Q 27

Got it, thanks so much!! If the specific compounds happened to match their orders below, we would observe correlation, but here it's evidently different. thanks for clarifying!

In order of enzyme activity:
4c > 5a > 4b > 5b > 4a

In order of cytotoxicity
4b > 5a > 5b > 4c > 4a

NL FL #4, Chemistry Q 27

Hi! I'm trying to understand we can't infer a "general" negative correlation between cytotoxicity of the compounds and their inhibitory effect on the enzyme from tables 1 and 2. To me, it seemed like there was a decently clear trend when we looked at the HCT116 lines. all the compounds relative to 4...

NS FL#3 Psych Q13

Hi! I'm looking at Table 1 in this question (this is where I also looked while taking the test), and the numbers here seem to contradict the finding from Figure 1 that older people are more likely to experience poverty? The means for both < 20% and < 10% poverty are higher for the 30 yr old folks as...

NS FL #3 Chemistry/Phys Q50

Hi, how do you know that the substance dissolved here is silver phosphate? (I ended up getting the correct answer, by thinking of the common ions as Ag^+, and PO4^3-, but wasn't able to know for sure that silver phosphate was the molecule hinted at, if i remember how I was thinking while giving the ...

Re: NS FL#2 Biology Q43

Gotcha! And yes, I realised I was trying to think very detailed, which may not be necessary for the MCAT. Much appreciate your help/willingness to answer my questions. :)

NS FL #2 Pysch Q51

Hi, i'm trying to understand the difference between cognitive dissonance and reciprocal determinism as applied to this situation. From my understanding through the explanations, reciprocal determinism explains the shift in the skeptics behavior, i.e., believing the seances are harmless as opposed to...
