Unlike previous years, there were no ambiguous questions this year. NEET 2017 was considered to have a moderate level of difficulty as most of the questions were direct and conceptual. NEET 2017 seems to have been moderately easy yet lengthy. Few questions from some subjects were even lengthier than last year. The weightage of marks was slightly more towards questions from the 12th standard syllabi. Download NEET 2017 Syllabus

The individual ratings have been assigned for different difficulty level with Easy questions rated as 1 and Difficult questions rated as 3. The table below provides us with a good insight about the difficulty of the paper.

NEET Paper Analysis for Chemistry

Chemistry section was of moderate to tough with majority of the questions falling in the difficult category. The section had 45 questions for 4 marks each. Out of these 45 questions, 14 questions lied in the Easy-Moderate zone. Organic Chemistry covered almost 33% of the total questions. Organic chemistry along with Physical Chemistry covered more than 65% of the questions. Students having a command over these two units would have done quite well in this section.

The numerical problems were formula based and easy too. The most interesting thing about one question Code-AA, Q.67 was, it had two correct options. Check Here Analysis of Last 10 Years for NEET Chemistry

The questions were quite spread out as CBSE tried to touch all the topics and asked at least 1 question from each topic. However, Organic Chemistry dominated the section with most of the questions but with a lot of different topics in the paper it was difficult for the students to rely only on one topic to excel the section.

puvvadi mounica rani

a block of mass 10kg is moving in x-direction with a constant speed of 10m/s.It is subjected to a regarding force F=-0.1x J/m during its travel from x=20m to x=30m.It's final kinetic energy will be?

19 Apr, 2017 00:20

Hi Mounica, Please find the answer to your query below.

The equation of motion of block moving with velocity 10 m/s and de-acceleration A = 0.1x/m = 0.1x/10 = 0.01x m/s2 is given by, 

v2 = 102 – 2 x 0.01 \(\int\limits_{20}^{30}\mathrm{0.1x}\,\mathrm{d}x\) = 100 – 0.02 [x2/2] 
    = 100 – 0.01[302-202] = 100 – 0.01[900-400] = 100 – 5 = 95
v2 = 95
and  ½ mv2 = ½ x 10 x 95 = 475 J

Therefore final kinetic energy = 475 J
