What subjects should I take in high school if I want to be a doctor?

For many students, high school is a perfect time to gain the science and math foundation for a career in medicine. Becoming a doctor is a long and arduous path, full of science classes. At Transformation Tutoring, we often find high school teachers explaining subjects in an easier and more digestible ways than college professors. What subjects would be useful to take in high school? 1. AP Chemistry AP Chemistry is a college level chemistry. A student on the pre-med track is required to take 2 semesters of general chemistry. Therefore, AP chemistry is an excellent class to take in high school to prepare for college, or to even exempt from (for some colleges) if the student gets a 4 or 5 on th

How to identify a weak acid?

How to identify a weak acid? A weak acid is an acid that does not dissociate completely. If we are given a Ka for an acid that is small, the acid must be weak. For strong acids, Kat are not even usually given, unless the professor is trying to trick you. There are three definitions of acids: Arrhenius acid- Hydrogen ion producer when in water. Bronsted Lowry acid - proton (H+) donor Lewis acid - electron pair acceptor. In order to identify a weak acid, students must first memorize strong acids. Strong acids are : hydrochloric acid (HCl) , nitric acid (HNO3), sulfuric acid (H2SO4), hydrobromic acid (HBr), hydroiodic acid (HI), perchloric acid (HClO4), and chloric acid (HClO3). Weak acids will

The Journey from Finance to Physical Therapy.

I met Erica at the very beginning of my tutoring career for chemistry tutoring. Her hard work and motivation was very inspiring. I had no doubt Erica would be able to achieve her dreams of becoming a physical therapist, and she did! Her hard work and resilient spirit are infatuating. 1. Why did you decide to become a Physical Therapist? I ran track & field when I was in grade school and when I had injuries, the physical therapists that I saw seemed to have a very mechanical explanation to why I was injured. It was fascinating. 2. What are the challenges you encountered on your way and how were you able to overcome them? (especially post bac). For me, the biggest challenge was getting through

All you need to know about the chemistry regent test

Chemistry regent in approaching. This year, it will be administered on June 25, 2019 at 9 am. Format: The test consists of fifty multiple choice questions and thirty-five short response questions. Score conversion: There is a score conversion for every Chemistry Regent administered. For example for June 2012 test, a student got got 1 answer wrong would get 98, 10 answers wrong would be 86, and 36 answers wrong would pass with a 65. Test topics: Matter and its properties, atomic concepts, periodic table and trends, formulas and names, stoichiometry, bonding, heat and temperature, kinetics and equilibrium, water and solutions, acids and bases, organic chemistry, phases and gases, electrochemis

While taking off from an aircraft carrier, a jet starting from rest accelerates uniformly to a final

Physics Regent Exam, June 19, 2018 3. While taking off from an aircraft carrier, a jet starting from rest accelerates uniformly to a final speed of 40. meters per second on a runway that is 70. meters long. What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the jet? Let's first determine what we are given. We have initial speed = 0 since the jet starts at rest. We also have a final speed of 40 m/s. We have distance of 70 meters, and we are asked to find the magnitude of acceleration. Looking at the referent table formulas on the last page, we need to find a formula that has what we are given. The formula is vf^2= vi^2 + 2ad Let's plug in the answers to find a 40^2= 0 + 2a*70 a=11.43 m/s^2, leaving
