Requesting Brilliantians' Help for Chemistry and Physics

I would like to improve on Chemistry and Physics, and want to build a foundation for the same before I start class 11 (cbse- india).

I request Brilliantians out there to suggest books and resources.

Thanks in advance.

Rasnick Halliday can be suggested for physics

You can find it on flipkart.

We are in the midst of building out the Physics Practice section, so check back often! The Wiki would also be a good resource for you to learn more about the concepts.

@Calvin Lin Thankyou sir.

The 11th syllabus is quite different from 10th. Reading the 11th textbooks for Chemistry, in parallel with your 10th textbooks should be enough for chemistry foundation. For extra knowledge, and a head start at IIT prep, you can use Cengage Learning or GRB or K Singh.

For physics, Halliday-Resnick is really helpful. Also, using Arihant is very helpful.

Hi! @Nanayaranaraknas Vahdam - if possible could you send the NTSE paper (SAT) of last year to me...you know my mail already :D ( the state level)...Thanks :D..

For those of you who are interested in building out Chemistry on Brilliant, and would be willing to spend time writing up great wiki pages over the next month, please send me an email (Calvin@Brilliant.org).

For more information, see this note.

Welcome! Though, you've thanked me for doing nothing at all! :D

You are welcome.

"Concepts of Physics" by H.C.Verma is also a good book.I forgot to mention that earlier.

Please refer to I.E Irodov (Problems in General Physics) for solving some tricky physics question.

Hi!You're really good in physics (mechanics). How?

Krishna Ar - 3 years ago

Hi,Krishna.It's great to receive complement from you. I have studied all about physics from internet.The video lectures on youtube uploaded by Pradeep Kshetrapal and Praveen Tyagi are really helpful.Also,some books like Resnic Halliday and Concepts in Physics by H.C.Verma are also very useful.I have also referred to online forums in case of confusions. You are also very good in maths.How?

@Satvik Pandey Nice to know. Well, I am not "good" at math, but maybe a "little more than decent". It can be traced back to times when I'd failed to do well in Math....after that, I worked on math...then there was a hiatus...Now I 'm back again! :D I must say its the interest! You (might) know almost all of class-11 physics! In the same way, I worked on areas of math (NT) which I liked ...Somehow I feel calculus is inhibiting me from doing physics properly though

Krishna Ar - 3 years ago

@Krishna Ar Yes,I agree that it's all the matter of interest.When I started solving problems in physics, calculus disturbed me a lot but then I worked on it too.I think applying concepts of calculus in physics is quite tough and interesting too.

@Satvik Pandey Hey ...can you please tell me how you tackled that problem? :)

Krishna Ar - 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Krishna Ar Sure,I will be glad to do so.

Calculus is used in the physics to deal with the situation in which things are changing w.r.t to time. We usually find a mathematical expression for that change in infinitely small time (dt) then integrate it within limits according to situation.

It is clear from the following example: Please search for problem titled " The time before they met". In this problem as bodies start coming towards each other their relative separation changes and therefore w.r.t to time their acceleration also changes.So we usually find their velocity at any general distance "x" ( x is the distance between the bodies) with the help of conservation of energy.Then we write v as dx/dt (infinitely small change in distance/ infinitely small change in time) then after integrating it within proper limits one can easily find required time. There are basically four steps in using calculus- 1) Go to a general position. 2) Choose a suitable differential quantity. 3) Find mathematical expression for the change in that quantity 4) Integrate it within suitable limits. If you want you can refer to site

https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/time-of-approach-of-two-oppositely-charged-particle.761290/ you can find similar type on question on that webpage(instead of masses here are unlike charges).

@Satvik Pandey The discussion on that webpage is quite long.:)

Please have patience in reading discussion(read till page 2 of that discussion at least).

@Satvik Pandey Thanks! I'll definitely do so! :D

@Krishna Ar Krishna,which subject will you take in class 11 (maths/bio)?

Satvik Pandey - 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Satvik Pandey Both! :D. WBU?

Krishna Ar - 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Krishna Ar I will take maths.Bio requires too much memorization and I think I am not good at it. :(

Will you prepare for IIT or Medical (or both :D)?

Satvik Pandey - 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Satvik Pandey The latter! :D You?

Krishna Ar - 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Krishna Ar I will prepare for IIT. :D

@Satvik Pandey Do you attend coaching?

Krishna Ar - 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Krishna Ar I have not attended any coaching yet.But I will join coaching for the preparation on IIT in class 11, Till now I have studied mainly through video lectures on youtube and by myself.

What about you?

Satvik Pandey - 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Satvik Pandey Even I don't attend ANY sort of coaching!

Krishna Ar - 3 years ago

@Krishna Ar Good to know!

According to me,studying science and maths without any guidance of teacher is not an easy task. If you have any doubt then whom you use to approach for clarifying them?

Satvik Pandey - 3 years ago

So, you're in Class-10? Writing NTSE? (If you are in class-10)

Krishna Ar - 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Krishna Ar Yes, I am studying in class 10. I was planning to write NTSE, but later I dropped the idea.
