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. The syllabus was reduced last year due to the pandemic. Find details of the syllabus below.
Here, you can see the list of topics that are covered in the syllabus:
|Chapter 1 – Electric Charges and Fields
|Chapter 2- Electrostatic Potential and Capacitance
|Chapter 3- Current Electricity
|Chapter 4- Magnetic effect of current
|Chapter 5- Magnetism and Matter
|Chapter 6- Electromagnetic Induction
|Chapter 7- Alternating Current
|Chapter 8- Electromagnetic Waves
|Chapter 9- Ray Optics
|Chapter 10- Wave Optics
|Chapter 11- Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter
|Chapter 12- Atoms
|Chapter 13- Nuclei
|Chapter 14- Semiconductor Electronics: Materials, Devices and Simple Circuits
|Chapter 15- Communications system
Jharkhand Board Class 12 Physics Practical Syllabus
Details about the Physics Practicals are shown in the table below:
|Section A: Experiments
|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
