MCAT Basics (from MedSchoolCoach)

Episode 16

This podcast covers topics within electromagnetism. First, I will talk about charge and electric fields. This will include discussions on static charge, the amber effect, and electric potential. Then, I will introduce magnetism. I will discuss the concept of magnetism, force applied by a magnetic field, the right hand rule, and the magnetic characterization of different materials.


  1. Electrostatic force is INVERSELY proportional to the distance between charges squared
  2. Amperes = Coulombs/Second
  3. I say that magnetic field lines travel in the same direction that Santa goes when he is done delivering presents. This assumes he lives on the South Pole. (i.e. he goes north to south when he is done delivering presents)
