The present book is being brought out to present the subject matter and depth of content of Physics in full
conformity with the latest syllabi prescribed by the NCERT/CBSE, New Delhi and other State Education
Boards. In order to keep pace with the recent trends in education at the national level, the whole textual
material has been arranged and presented in a sequential manner, following the NCERT pattern. Special
emphasis has been laid on skill development in the problem solving approach for providing better basic
conceptual understanding and deep insight of the subject matter in numerical problem solving as well.
Standard nomenclature, SI units, recommended symbols, Signs, proper SI unit symbol-writing and the
dimensional aspects of various physical quantities have been used throughout in the book, in keeping with
the recommendations at the national and international levels.
A conscious effort has been made to relate Physics concepts with real-life situations so that the learners
are able to appreciate the practical applications in everyday experiences, in pursuit of Physics learning.
Fundamental emphasis is precisely on learning the physics of Physics and learning to learn Physics.
A unique feature-Illustrative Investigation has been introduced in the book, as a part of much-needed
experimentation cum technology-based aspect, to-seek for practical applications of the concepts in day-today
life of the learners. This aspect is expected to enhance their motivational level in the form of thought
process for better and correct learning of Physics, with a view to eradicate misconceptions in Physics.
The textual material of the book has been presented in a systematic and sequential manner, easily
comprehensible by the learners to make it learner-friendly. In addition to full coverage of the content, each
chapter of the book includes Illustrative Investigation, Summary (content revision at a glance), Solved
NCERT Textbook Exercises, Examples and Additional Exercises (to cover HOTS), Solved NCERT
Exemplar Problems, specially designed Practice Exercises (with Hints and Solutions) and Additional
Practice Exercises (with answers for self-practice), covering most of the previous years’ questions from
various State Education Boards and Competitive Examinations. Conceptual numerical problems and
Short Answer Type, Multiple Choice Type Questions, Assertion and Reason Type Questions, set in
different competitive Examinations (CBSE, AIEEE, IIT, CPMT, MNR, AFMC, AIIMS, etc) have been
covered thoroughly in the present book.
The author strongly feels that learning is basically a life-long continual and gradual process with the novel
technique of problem solving approach at hand, the learners will be able to master the basic concepts and
techniques/tools required for better learning of Physics throughout the academic year, apart from
preparing for achieving excellence in Board Examination as well as Competitive Examinations related to
The present book is supported with the first Augmented Reality app, as a novel feature with interactive
Nytra-Watch books come alive.
