Jharkhand Board Class 12 Physics Syllabus

The Jharkhand Education Council has been striving to provide world-class education in Science. By adopting novel methods such as introducing major scientific developments in the syllabus and following the guidelines laid down by the National Curriculum Framework 2005, the Jharkhand board has set a credible syllabus that puts the students on a path towards meaningful higher education. The Jharkhand Board Class 12 Physics Syllabus has all the required components for a great foundation.

The board has adopted a future focus curriculum so that the topics are included in the syllabus before they are in demand in the industry. Physics subjects lose their meaning if experiments and practicals don’t go hand in hand with theory classes. To this extent, the board has included a right mix of practicals in the syllabus.

Jharkhand Board Class 12 Physics Practical Syllabus

Details about the Physics Practicals are shown in the table below:

Section A: Experiments
  1. To find the resistance of a given wire using meter bridge and hence determine the specific resistance of its material.
     2. To determine resistance per cm of a given wire by plotting a graph of potential difference versus current.
   3. To verify the laws of combination (series/parallel) of resistances using a meter bridge
  4. To compare the emf ’s of two given primary cells using the potentiometer
   5. To determine the internal resistance of a given primary cell using the potentiometer
   6. To determine the resistance of a galvanometer by a half-deflection method and to find its figure of merit.
   7. To convert the given galvanometer (of known resistance of figure of merit) into an ammeter and voltmeter of desired range and to verify the same.
  8. To find the frequency of the ac mains with a sonometer.
Section B: Experiments
  1. To find the value of v for different values of u in case of a concave mirror and to find the focal length.
2. To find the focal length of a convex mirror, using a convex lens.
3. To find the focal length of a convex lens by plotting graphs between u and v or between 1/u and 1/v.
4. To find the focal length of a concave lens, using a convex lens.
5. To determine the angle of minimum deviation for a given prism by plotting a graph between the angle of incidence and the angle of deviation.
6. To determine the refractive index of a glass slab using a travelling microscope.
7. To find the refractive index of a liquid by using (i) concave mirror, (ii) convex lens and plane mirror.
8. To draw the I-V characteristics curves of a p-n junction in forward bias and reverse bias.
9. To draw the characteristic curve of a zener diode and to determine its reverse break down voltage.
10. To study the characteristics of a common-emitter npn or pnp transistor and to find out the value of current and voltage gains.
