Karnataka Board 1st PUC Physics Syllabus

A well thought out Karnataka Board Class 11 Physics Syllabus will provide 1st puc students of Karnataka Board with detailed information on the subject. This information will help the Karnataka State Board Class 11 Students to determine the sequence of the topics and sub-topics under Physics that will be covered during the class. It also enables the students to read up 1st puc textbooks on Physics ahead of time and thus be well prepared for an upcoming session.

While the Karnataka Board 1st puc course includes a wide variety of subjects ranging from Accountancy to Statistics or Business Mathematics and even Psychology or Science and there are different syllabus for each subject, our focus at BYJU’s is more for Maths or a Science subject.

On an overview, the Karnataka Class 11 Syllabus for Physics is divided into 15 units normally consisting of main topics such as Physical World, Units and Measurements, Laws of Motion, Mechanical Properties of Fluid, Hydrocarbons and more. Some syllabuses will also contain information on the teachers assigned for a course, time allotted for a lesson, sample questions or so, making it easier for students to judge their knowledge about the topic. It will also help them to prepare ahead of time and bridge the gap, easily.

See here a sample copy of Karnataka Board Class 11 Physics Syllabus:
