NEET Physics Syllabus Relatively Less Important Topics
The following are relatively less vital chapters and have moderate weightage:
- Physical World and Measurement
- Atoms and Nuclei
- Dual Nature of Matter and Radiation
- Work, Energy & Power
- Behaviour of Perfect Gas and Kinetic Theory
- Electromagnetic Waves
Although the above-stated chapters have a moderate weightage, they are still part of the syllabus. Thus students are encouraged not to skip them but to devote less time and effort to them than to the chapters with a high weightage.
To score high, students should also focus on solving numerical-based problems while studying from NCERT and other reference books, other than the theoretical questions.
The NEET exam assesses three subjects: Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. While studying for NEET, NCERT books for classes 11th and 12th are quite significant. The NEET Physics Syllabus, in particular, is thought to be the most difficult of the three disciplines. The syllabus for this Exam is taken directly from the NCERT curriculum for Classes 11 and 12.

The NEET Physics syllabus is generally challenging since it contains many scientific principles, quantitative problems, and complex patterns. Therefore, students should first clear their concepts before moving on to the numericals. To learn and recall all relevant formulae and concepts, concentrate on the most crucial topics and make short, rapid notes. Maintain these notes and continue to revise the concepts and formulae as needed.
Instead of studying the ideas and formulae separately, students can learn the formulas alongside the concepts to better understand the principles that underpin the formulas. This can also assist students in connecting concepts, which improves memorization.
Chapter-Wise Important Questions for NEET Physics Preparation
Important Unit and Measurement Questions
1. What are the dimensions of x and y in the equation F=xt + yt², where t is the time?
Dimensions of x and y are MLT-3 and MLT-4 respectively.
2. Starting at the origin (0, 0), a particle travels in the (x, y) plane in a straight path. What angle does the travelled particle’s path make with the x axis?
The particle forms a 600° angle with the x axis.
Important Motion in a Straight Line Questions
1. Two trains, one of 100m and the other of 125m, are travelling in opposite directions along parallel lines and encounter at a speed of 10 metres per second. If their respective accelerations are 0.3 m/s² and 0.2 m/s², the time it takes them to overtake each other will be?
It will take both trains 10 secs to overtake each other.
2. A guy in a balloon rises vertically at 4.9 m/s² and drops a ball 2 seconds after the balloon is lifted from the ground. What is the highest point above the ground the ball reaches? (g=9.8 m/s²).
The highest point above the ground the ball reaches is 14.7m
Important Vectors Questions
1. What is the magnitude of the cross product of two vectors with magnitude 2 and 3 and resultant vector 1?
As the vectors are antiparallel, the cross product will be 0.
2. When |Ā x B| = |Ā.B|, then the angle between Ā and B will be equal to?
The angle between Ā and B will be equal to 45°
Important Laws of Motion Questions
1. A mass m block is held on a moving mass M block in such a way that M moves but m stays at rest with regard to M. So, what can you say about the momentum and kinetic energy of this case?
In this case, the momentum and kinetic energy for mass m will be 0 and constant but for mass M, it will be variable.
2. Three weights, W, 2W, and 3W, are hung from a stiff horizontal rod by identical springs. The rod assembly and weights are free to fall. What can you say about the weights on the rods and their positions?
The apparent weight of all the items is zero at the initial condition of falling, therefore, the three things will be at the same distance.
Important Work Energy and Power Questions
1. A brick dangles freely from a spring’s end. The spring is then relieved of pressure by a boy carefully pushing the block higher. During this procedure, the brick’s gain in gravitational potential energy is equal to?
During this process, the brick develops gravitational potential energy equivalent to the work done by the boy against the gravitational force exerted on the brick.
2. The Potential Energy of a long spring stretched by x cm is U. What is the Potential Energy stored in the spring if it is extended by nx cm?
The change in potential energy will of nU²
Important Gravitation Questions
1. A distance of 2m separates two bodies weighing 10 kg and 100 kg respectively. What is the gravitational potential at the midpoint of the line that joins the two bodies?
The gravitational potential at the midpoint of the line that joins the two bodies will be -7.3×10-9 J/kg.
2. What happens to an object’s weight when it is transported from the equator to the poles?
The weight of the object rises when travelling from the equator to the poles because the acceleration due to gravity increases.
Important Heat and its Transfer Questions
1. A 3 m diameter and 20 m long cylindrical tube is coated with 3 cm of insulating material having a conductivity of 10 cal cm-s10 C-. Although the outside temperature is – 30°C, it is kept at 20°C. What is the needed rate of heating to keep the inside temperature constant?
The amount of heat required to maintain a constant internal temperature is 3100 cal/s or 12980 J/s.
2. Raghav tries to clog a plastic tap with a rubber pipe. The issue is that the pipe’s diameter is less than what is necessary for a secure fit. As a result, Raghav turns on a half-dryer and directs it towards the pipe. He discovered that the pipe was now readily inserted. What causes this to happen?
Due to the heat, the plastic expands and it becomes easier to clog but once it cools down the pipe contracts back.
1. What are some strategies for obtaining an answer to a question about which you are unsure in the exam?
If an issue requires extensive computations, try rough approximations to form the answer. Increase the emphasis on numerical problems that are formula-based. Use visual tools to help you develop a framework for your replies to theoretical issues. Use the information from other questions on the same topic to help you obtain the answer.
2. What should you do in the last moments of exam preparation?
The physics component consists primarily of numerical problems, which require constant practice. Regular revisions and practice will assist in the development of speed and precision, both of which are vitally important in the test. Create a cheat sheet with fast looks at formulae and concepts that you can have at your fingertips.
3. What are some NEET Physics revision tips that students should know?
NCERT should be kept on hand by students because it is the foundation of the syllabus. At the very least, students should be familiar with the NCERT physics textbook material. Practice MCQs using different reference books, such as HC Verma. Keep practising prior-year papers since it has been noted that when two question papers are compared, many of the contents are more or less the same, with minor variations in how the questions were phrased. Working on previous year’s question papers would be extremely beneficial in boosting precision and speed.
4. What is the nature of the NEET Physics exam questions?
The Physics subject of the NEET exam accounts for 25% of the total 180 points. NEET questions in physics span a wide variety of conceptual and numerical difficulties associated with each idea. As a result, students should devote more time preparing for the NEET Physics Exam to grasping ideas and answering numerical problems.
Students can review the weightage and determine which chapters are more important for the test, allowing them to prepare properly. It is recommended that you devote more time and attention to the more important chapters because they are more crucial.
