Electromagnetism JEE

Much like the previous module of Electrostatics, there are fundamental derivations to be understood as concepts which are later coupled with problems to form interesting questions. With 3 to 4 questions appearing every year 2 chapters out of 3 in this unit are very important. Constituting 11% of Physics, 36 questions have been asked between 2010 and 2019. Electromagnetic Field and Electromagnetic Induction are the two important chapters from this module while Alternating Current is just an add-on.

Q. How do I Study Electromagnetism for JEE?

Before you start with Electromagnetism ensure you have complete the following topics Electrostatics, Capacitors and current electricity if you have not we will advise you to 1st complete these topics only then go ahead with Electromagnetism since a lot of theorems you study in the above topic will be used here. Electro Magnetism also involves concepts of Mechanics (Kinematics, work energy, linear momentum) so will advise you to have a quick revision of those topics as well. Focus on the magnetic field, magnetic momentum, uniform magnetic field also galvanometer.

Q. How many questions are asked in JEE from Electromagnetic?

Every year 3 to 4 questions are asked from Electromagnetism for 12 to 16 marks. It constitutes about 11% of the physics syllabus. Since 2010 36 questions have been asked from electromagnetism

Q. Which are the important topics from electromagnetics in JEE?

1. Biot-Savart Law 2. Torque on Current Loop and Magnetic Dipole 3. Bar magnet and Magnetic Field lines 4. Earth's Magnetism 5. Electromagnetic Waves and Spectrum 6. Communication systems 7. Magnetic Flux 8. Faraday's Law of Induction 9. Inductance and AC generator/li> 10. Alternating currents

Q. Which are the best books for Electromagnetism for JEE?

If you ask these questions everyone will say IE IRODOV or some reference books they are too much in-depth and most of the theory is not even asked in JEE from them. So we will ask you to stick to NCERT since this topic is a part of the class 12th syllabus. Just NCERT will not be enough so you will have to study the topics in more advance for which books from Arihant is good.

Q. Is electromagnetic Induction difficult?

No electromagnetic is one of the easiest topics but requires a lot of visualisation from students. Students often get confused with directions so we will advise you to use kaysons video lectures which have explained the concept with help of animation and will help you get a better grip of the topic

Q. Is electromagnetic induction important for JEE?

Electromagnetic Induction is important for JEE as well as board Exams so you will have to study the topic properly. It is one of the easiest topics of JEE as well as board plus it is the most scoring topics as well.

Q. Can I leave Magnetism for JEE?

No, you can't it constitutes about 11% of the physics syllabus and 30% of your board syllabus. Questions asked from this topic is easy and scoring. If you are finding it difficult it can be because your previous topics like Electrostatics, Capacitors and current electricity might be weak so please study those topics and then study this topic

Q. Is NCERT enough for Magnetism for JEE?

NCERT will help you solve 30% of the questions from Magnetism for the remaining 70% NCERT is not enough you cannot skip NCERT but only doing NCERT is not enough.
