Welcome my dear students

This blog was launched in January 2014 with a short-term goal of helping students of class 12 prepare for CBSE Physics examination March, 2014. Initially, the blog aimed at helping low achievers garner the much-needed confidence to face the examination. We started with MLL (minimum level of learning) required to get through the examination. In order to achieve this objective, a series of posts titled: ‘TOWARDS EXAMINATION WITH CONFIDENCE’ were shared with the students.

It made me happy to note that the posts were read & followed by a large number of students in India and over a dozen other countries.

A number of students requested for strategies to excel in Physics. To cater to need of such students, the posts GETTING 90+ in Physics; Tips & tricks, Motivational videos, Quotes and a host of other useful material was shared in addition to the preparation of QUICK REVISION KIT needed for the examination.

To give the students an idea of REAL TIME QUESTIONS, latest sample paper issued by CBSE for the said exam of March 2014 with solutions along with a fairly large number of previous year papers (with to the point solutions) were posted on the blog. 

In addition, the posts Performance Boosters…., Just five minutes… A short story …..Cheers….Model answer by CBSE students… were well received.

In this new session, it is hoped that we will be able to further our common endeavor to learn Physics without fear in real terms and fully prepare ourselves to face the examination with confidence.

I welcome the students to follow the blog, introduce it to the present class 12 students & to send their valuable suggestions to make our interaction a fruitful & long-lasting one.

On my part, I will try to work out ways & means to make the blog more meaningful & user-friendly in addition to devise methods to come closer to my old and new students.

Oscillations…MCQs

Useful material for the forthcoming entrance tests.
The first in the series was Rotational Motion, a unit of Class 11, the students find difficult to comprehend.
In continuation to the above lesson, another lesson on Oscillations is being posted.
The MCQs from the lesson have been carefully written/selected to cover various concepts in the unit.
MCQs from some more units units will be posted in due course.
Continue to visit the blog or more units.

Happy learning!
P. S.: The solutions to the MCQs have also been appended for use.

Focus on your goal: Einstein style (सफलता का राज)

THE SECRET OF SUCCESS:

Einstein and an assistant, having finished a paper, searched the office for a paper clip. They finally found one, too badly bent for use. They looked for an implement to straighten it, and after opening many more drawers came upon a whole box of clips. Einstein at once shaped one into a tool to straighten the bent clip. His assistant, puzzled, asked why he was doing this when there was a whole boxful of usable clips. “Once I am set on a goal it becomes difficult to deflect me,” said Einstein.

सफलता का राज:

  एक बार मशहूर वैज्ञानिक अल्बर्ट आइंस्टीन अपने एक सहायक के साथ ऑफिस में काम कर रहे थे। काम खत्म हो जाने के बाद बहुत सारे कागज मेज पर इकट्ठे हो गए। उन सभी को बराबर करके बांधने के लिए आइंस्टीन पेपर क्लिप टूंढने लगे। उन्हें एक जगह व्यवस्थित करके रखना जरूरी था, नहीं तो वे इधर-उधर हो जाते। लेकिन उस समय आइंस्टीन व उनके सहायक को कहीं भी पेपर क्लिप नजर नहीं आ रही थी। आखिर आइंस्टीन को एक खराब सी मुड़ी हुई क्लिप मिली, मगर उसे सीधा करना जरूरी था, तभी वह काम आती। आइंस्टीन उस क्लिप को सीधा करने में जुट गए।


काफी देर हो गई। इसी बीच उनका सहायक बाजार जाकर पेपर क्लिप का नया पैकेट खरीद लाया। उसने नई पेपर क्लिप लाकर कागजों में लगा दी और फिर अपने काम में जुट गया। एक-दो घंटे में अपना काम खत्म करने के बाद सहायक आइंस्टीन के पास आया तो यह देखकर दंग रह गया कि वह अभी भी उस खराब व मुड़ी हुई क्लिप को सीधा करने में लगे थे।

सहायक ने कहा, ‘सर, मुझे पेपरों को क्लिप में लगाए लगभग दो घंटे होने वाले हैं और आप अभी भी इसे सीधा करने में लगे हैं। अब इसकी कोई जरूरत नहीं है। अब तो बहुत सारी नई क्लिप आ गई हैं।’ सहायक की बात सुनकर आइंस्टीन बोले, ‘तुम अपनी जगह ठीक हो। लेकिन मैं एक बार जब अपना कोई लक्ष्य तय कर लेता हूं तो उससे हटना मेरे लिए मुश्किल हो जाता है। मैं उसे पूरी करके ही रहता हूं।’ यह सुनकर सहायक दंग रह गया। उसे आइंस्टीन की सफलता का राज समझ में आ गया।
