About me

Hi, 
My name is Karl and I am a second year medical student at Cambridge. I have achieved First Class Honours after my first year of study and ranked 20th in the year out of over 300 medics. 

I am currently teaching over 10 different students and have been tutoring over the past 3 years (GCSE to A-Level/IB standard).

My teaching style is usually centred around helping the student to fully understand the underlying concepts of a topic; of course I am always prepared to adapt to the student. Whilst teaching I also enjoy using analogies and visual images to better illustrate complex concepts. In any case, I try to work out the best teaching style once I have met the student.

I attended the German School London where I completed a dual qualification, consisting of both the IB and German Abitur. The fact I completed both qualifications means I have covered almost all of the Chemistry and Biology that can come up in exams. Result-wise I achieved 95%+ (raw mark) on every exam set by the German examination system. In the IB I achieved 7/7 in HL Chemistry and Biology, as well as 48/48 moderated marks in my IA. 

Any question? Go ahead. 

I look forward to helping out, 
Karl

simply fantastic.

Sarah (Student) November 28 2016

Karl was really good at explaining complex questions using straightforward solutions.

Wisdom (Student) October 14 2016

He was great! I look forward for him to teach me again soon.

What does the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution illustrate?

The Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution is used to describe the fact that at a given temperature the individual atoms of an ideal gas are not all moving at the same velocity and thus have different kinetic energies. 

Take a balloon of helium for instance. It is filled with billions of helium atoms, all of which are moving at different velocities. As kinetic energy is proportional to velocity squared and mass, it is clear that a rise in velocity will increase the kinetic energy value. Mass does not play a significant role as helium atoms all have roughly the same mass (isotopes account for small differences). 

The Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution plots kinetic energy on the x-axis and number of particles of the y-axis. A curve is plotted showing the number of atoms that possess a specified kinetic energy. 

It is important to note that we can create a distribution for different temperatures and that this can help us understand how the distribution of particle kinetic energy changes as the temperature is altered. In the case of raising the temperature we would find that the curve flattens out and shifts along the x-axis. This is in accordance with the fact that as temperature rises, so too does the mean kinetic energy.
