Use of units in physics

Introduction about physics and studying the subject This article is mainly about use of units in physics. But before going further let us first discuss about how to avoid problems that students face while studying physics. When you study physics you must have appropriate skills or you would have to struggle a lot while studying the subject. In my experience students fail to learn physics … Continue reading Use of units in physics »


Relative velocity

Before discussing relative velocity we must know that all the motion is relative. Everything moves-even things that appear to be at rest. They move relative to the Sun and stars. When we discuss the motion of something, we describe the motion relative to something else. When we say a racing car reaches a speed of 200 kilometers per hour, we mean relative to the track. Unless stated otherwise, when we discuss the speeds of things in our environment, we mean relative to the surface of Earth. Motion is relative.

H.C Verma Concepts of physics OR NCERT physics books

Many times i have had users ask me a question which book to opt between H.C Verma Concepts of physics and NCERT physics books. My answer is you can keep both the books set for your preparation as NCERT is nice book to learn a good concepts and is according to the exam level of class 11 and class 12.

Complex Numbers

Complex numbers are the numbers of the form a+ib where a and b are real numbers.

Definition:- Complex numbers are defined as an ordered pair of real numbers like (x,y) where


and both x and y are real numbers and x is known as real part of complex number and y is known as imaginary part of the complex number.
