List of topics under mechanics for JEE:

mechanics iit jeeMechanics is perhaps one of the lengthiest portions in Physics, and forms the fundamentals for the subject. It is also one of the most important units in preparation for JEE. The other topics within the subject are Optics, Electricity & Magnetism, Thermodynamics and Modern Physics.

It’s imperative for all engineering aspirants to start with Mechanics for their preparation to strengthen the basics. Most students spend almost a year on absorbing and sharpening the fundamentals of Mechanics, to help them in cracking JEE.

Here is a list of all topics included in mechanics for JEE:

  1. Kinematics: Deals with the motion of particle in one and two dimension
  2. Laws of Motion: Covers Newton’s Three Laws of Motion
  3. Work, Energy & Power: Deals with kinetic and potential energies, work-energy theorem, and power
  4. Rotational Motion: Comprises of basic concepts of rotational motion, force, torque, and angular momentum
  5. Gravitation: Universal law of gravitation, Kepler’s law of planetary motion
  6. Properties of solids and liquids: Hooke’s law, Young’s modulus, Bernoulli’s principle, Newton’s law of cooling, Pascal’s law
  7. Thermodynamics: Thermal equilibrium, zeroth law, first and second law of thermodynamics
  8. Kinetic Theory of Gases: Concept of pressure, RMS speed, law of equipartition, Avogadro’s number
  9. Oscillation & Waves: Periodic motion, Simple harmonic motion, wave motion, Doppler effect

JEE is a very competitive test and attempts evaluation on the learning and adaptive aptitude of candidates. Strong fundamentals and an adaptive, logical brain is what will help you secure the scores you aim for.

As far as Mechanics as a topic is concerned, always remember that it’s important that you give equal importance to theory and numericals. Many students, in overconfidence of having understood theory, do not practice problems enough and vice-a-versa. There are some noteworthy books that students refer to. Resnick Halliday has excellent theory. It explains things in great detail. The in-text examples will help you think how to approach a problem. For numerical problems you could refer to your local coaching classes. Ensure that you solve as many problems as possible to learn the tips and tricks and basically speed up your ability to solving.

So, to recapitulate, one needs to strike a balance between conceptual understanding and efficacy & speed in problem solving if you aim to perform well in JEE.
