Lenses and Optical Instruments

Focus this week is on lenses and optical instruments for Hita. Though Geometrical Optics is treated as one unit by Dora, I think we have to adjust to this micro level treatment of concept building by her China IIT Academy.

Maybe we have prioritised and trying to do in the following  order.

1. HC Verma intensive practice

2. Telugu academy question bank


4.DPPs and qp s of IIT Academy

5. AK Singh problems review

Refraction, TIR and Prism

G. Hita  I think will work on Total Internal reflection, refraction and prism this week.

Hope to find variety of problems in these areas also.

Though i am a bit taken back by her score in NSEP 2015.

Maybe I have to extract more o/p from her assignments.

we will try to do expts in this area with help of her mother.

Geometrical Optics

Gangineni Hita has started Geometrical Optics in her IIT Academy. Apparently there is good variety of problems here.

  1. Dora says he is also uncomfortable in the initial stages, but Hita is content  with his grace.
  2. She admires HC Verma – Concepts of Physics – Vol 1 and its problems in optics.
  3. We will progress to Co-IPL material, Abhay Kumar Singh,Rahul Sardana and prev.IIT qps.
  4. I suppose Hita needs to build more clarity with ray diagrams and sign convention.
  5. I would force Hita to do some expts in Optics so that she gets a feel of concepts.

Training Hard

Seal Training

I  always insist on training hard for Gangineni.Hita as her uncle also would advise. We want to cope with surprises.

  1. Any type of questions – Multi-Choice/Paragraph/Matching/Integer type/ Subjective
  2. All topics – including Experimental Physics, Conceptual questions, Semiconductor Devices,Properties of Matter, Measurements and Error analysis

Some topics in Physics-Outliers

I have observed that some topics in Second year physics  can be focused better for IIT-JEE Mains.

  1. Electromagnetic Waves
  2. Semiconductor Electronics, Materials, Devices and Simple Circuits
  3. Communication Systems

I think these can be better interpreted by an electronics engineer like myself with proper preparation.

Following Hita in her prep

I would like to follow Hita in her prep towards IIT JEE in Physics since I had a fascination towards it from my college days.

  1. Maybe I will summarise what Dora told her in the form of capsules in this blog.
  2. I will try to scan those pages.
  3. Maybe it will fructify into a book by the time Hita finishes her IIT JEE exam ( 2016 June).
  4. For another ten days i would concentrate on Heat & Thermodynamics.
  5. I will begin @ the beginning i.e  NCERT and go towards HC Verma, Sardana, Abhay Kumar Singh.

Heat & Thermodynamics : Focus for this week by HITA

We plan to concentrate on Heat & Thermodynamics for this week .

  1. This is the present topic in her college.
  2. We will start with HC Verma and add Sardana, IRODOV and Abhay Kumar Singh as we move forward.
  3. Hope to review with Dora on this topic by Sunday if not on Sat .
  4. Heat is an essential topic and relatively straight questions are available in competitive exams.
  5. I would like  Hita to increase the practice hours/output to gain quickness  in recognising situations and accuracy.
  6. Maybe I will supply her with more DPPs, QPs and assignments on Heat & Thermodynamics this week to steel her from surprises.
  7. Relatively weak areas need to be identified for ex from NSEP exam we would like to increase focus on Optics, Current Electricity, Experimental/Theoretical Physics, SemiConductor Devices.
