In this post we will discuss about the importance of kinematics in JEE advanced and JEE mains. Also we will focus on the types of questions that generally come from this section.
But before we do that we shall have a look at the past year trends -
Kinematics lays down the foundations for many concepts of physics and hence it is expected that students have strong command over this. Because of low difficulty, very less questions are asked which are entirely based upon it. As you can see from the past year trends that nearly 2-3 questions are asked in JEE advanced and 1-2 questions in JEE mains and usually these questions are direct and a good command over concepts and formulas can yield you full marks.
Despite of low difficulty, you should not undermine the importance of this topic. This is because the concepts of kinematics are mixed with other topics to create multiconcept questions and these have always been favorite when it comes to JEE. Now let us see some important topics in kinematics.
From perspectives of JEE understand the critical relationships between time, displacement, velocity, acceleration whether linear or angular.
Given a graph between any two variables, you should be able to interpret it and calculate the missing variables. Also, the questions that create a confusion between terms like speed, velocity, average speed, average velocity, etc. must be treated carefully.
Differential relationships between displacement, velocity and acceleration are of utmost importance and are used in every part of physics whenever motion is concerned. Usually new format questions that come in JEE are based on this concept only.
Those were the parts which are important and you should pay attention to them while solving questions. Finally, practice questions at eagerbug to get more confident and attain higher accuracy and speed.
