NEET 2017: Physics Preparation Tips

Last Updated - February 09, 2017

National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test, is a medical entrance exam conducted for admission to MBBS and BDS courses across Medical and Dental colleges in India. Every year almost 4.7 lakh aspirants appear for the NEET exam making it the toughest of all. NEET 2017 exam will be of 3 hours duration & timings will be from 10:00 to 01:00 PM. The exam will be conducted in offline mode.

A total of 45 MCQ are asked in NEET Physics section. Physics seems a very challenging section to most of the NEET aspirants. But, actually it is not.

Imagine you threw and caught a ball while you were on a train moving at a continuing speed past a station. To you, the ball can merely go vertically up and so down under the influence of gravity. However, if there’s an observer on the station platform, then that person can see the ball travel in a parabola, with a continuing horizontal component of speed equal to the speed of the train.

The difference in the observations is because of the two observers are in different frames of reference. This is the concept of Frames of Reference in Physics. NEET Exam is more conceptual rather than numerical. Physics is related to our daily life. Imagine the concepts and get your solution.

Topics like Mechanics, Heat & Thermodynamics, Electrodynamics and Modern Physics are the most important chapters from NEET 2017 perspective. This selection of important areas is made on the analysis of previous years’ questions. Mugging up the theoretical part won’t help in clearing NEET Exam but understanding the concepts would.

Topic-wise Weightage of Physics Section for NEET

Planning is the main step of exam preparation. Plan your studies! It is always wise to pick up those topics that carry high weightage, so, go for it. It can be seen that, Magnetic Effects of Current covers more marks than any other unit in NEET Physics Section. All the topics are mandatory but if are running out of time, then focus on those that carry high weightage marks.

NEET Physics Preparation: Topic Wise Tips

Work, Power & Energy: Understand the force. Deal with the Newton’s Laws of Motion and clear your concepts on conservative and non-conservative forces. HC Verma can help you in mastering the concepts of forces. While learning energy, keep in mind: “Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed, it can only be transferred from one form to another”. 

Don’t forget the SI Unites. Power is Watt. Always try to balance the KE, PE and the work done. If you find yourself stuck in a situation then make use of Work Energy Theorem to eliminate one unknown.

Light & Sound: Both travel as waves but light travels faster than sound waves. The wavelength of sound ranges between 1cm to 10m and it easily diffracts around corners while the wavelength of visible light ranges from 400nm-700nm.

Sound waves are longitudinal that means particles of medium vibrate in a direction parallel to the propagation direction of wave. This can be seen in the following picture:

Light is a traverse wave and it can be understood by the following picture:

Understand and clear your concepts of wavelengths and learn by heart the wavelengths of lights.

Thermodynamics: Clear your concepts on zeroth law of thermodynamics, 1st law of thermodynamics, Joules’ law, kinetic theory & gases and principle of calorimeter. Practice the diagrams of Carnot engine, study its efficiency and coefficient of performance.

Gravitation: Simple questions on universal law of gravitation, variation of ‘g’, with altitude and latitude, energy conservation, orbital velocity and escape velocity should be focused to fetch more marks.

Kinematics: Displacement, acceleration, average velocity, relative velocity are the basics of Kinematics. Try to visualize the numerical/ concepts before solving. Generally, questions based on projectile motion are straightly asked, stick to the formulae.

Laws of Motion: Conceptual questions and applications on laws of motion are sure to come in NEET Exam. These can be prepared well by practicing free body diagrams. Finding velocity of the colliding body in 1D is important.

Properties of Bulk Matter: Be thorough with fluid mechanics, as it is interrelated to many other subtopics of NEET Physics such as Bernoulli’s Theorem and velocity of efflux. Clear concepts on stress, strain, poisson’s ratio, advantages of elasticity and behavior of wire under increasing load can help you score better in NEET exam.

NEET 2017 Preparation Books for Physics

NCERT Books are considered best for understanding the concepts. And most importantly, most of the questions are picked from NCERT books in NEET exam. Practicing questions from other reference books will greatly boost up the preparation. Given below is a set of reference books for NEET Physics preparation.
