Senior Secondary: Physics (312)

NIOS via Swayam

Overview

Welcome to the revised Physics course of National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS). The Physics course is now divided into eight modules comprising thirty lessons on different themes. These eight modules contain predominantly the subject matter of mechanics, electricity, light and other areas of physics and represent the base knowledge which is required to progress into more advanced areas for developing appreciation for the fact that physics plays a significant role in most situations. The module VIII contains application oriented specific fields like semiconductors, electronics and communication. The Physics course has three parts. Parts 1 and 2 have theoretical part and Part 3 has laboratory work. The part 1 comprises four modules having seven lessons of module I on Motion, Force and Energy, two lessons of Module II on Mechanics of Solids and Fluids, three lessons of Module III on Thermal Physics and two lessons of Module IV on Oscillations and Waves. The second part comprises other four modules having five lessons of module V on Electricity and Magnetism, four lessons of module VI on Optics and Optical Instruments, four lessons of module VII on Atoms and Nuclei and three lessons of module VIII on Semiconductor Devices and Communication.
