Physics Important Topics

There are approx 20-22 chapters are included in JEE Advanced Physics syllabus and out of these, there are several important topics for physics that must be focused on while preparing for JEE Advanced Physics:

1. Mechanics: The JEE mechanics is basically about a few fundamental laws like Newton’s laws of motion, laws of gravitation, laws of conservation of linear and angular momentum.

2. Electricity and magnetism: Due to its size and the level of difficulty, this unit is very crucial for both JEE Main and Advanced. Every year lots of questions were asked in the examination.

3. Thermal physics and Fluid mechanics: Several times in JEE Advanced Exam questions from the laws of thermodynamics were mixed with calorimetry. Practice several numbers of questions from fluid mechanics as well.

4. Oscillation and waves: Every year around 4 to 5 questions are frequently asked from this unit. Try to understand certain complex topics like the principle of superposition, reflection & refraction of waves, forced and damped oscillations, resonance, Simple Harmonic Motion, Doppler effects in sound through visualization.

5. Optics: This is one of the easiest and high scoring units. Practice several numbers of questions from this unit.

6. Modern physics: Mostly theoretical questions are asked from this unit. Focus more on understanding Bohr’s model of atomic structure.

Other Topics
