About the book
A Textbook of Physics is based on the National Core Curriculum in Science and Mathematics. The objective of the National Core Curriculum framework approved by COBSE (Council of Boards of School Education) is to introduce uniform learning content at the senior secondary level. It is envisaged to set a level-playing field for students across all boards. This measure will ensure a good competition amongst students of different regions to fare well at national and state level entrance examinations for engineering and medicine. The delineated syllabus represents a quantum jump from learning experience at school to what is expected at the senior secondary level. The book deals with the content keeping logical development in mind. The language is lucid and simple. Its rich pedagogy will help students better their understanding and application of subject matter.
