Engineering Physics [06PHY12].

Courtesy: Satheesh Kumar, SNMJCE, Bangalore.

Course Description

06PHY12: Engineering Physics provides students with a fundamental knowledge of physics, together with problem-solving skills, and an understanding of many fundamental concepts of physics required for engineers seeking innovative careers in today's technological age. The chapters covered in this course are Modern Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Electrical Conductivity in Metals, Dielectric & Magnetic Properties of Materials, Lasers, Superconductivity & Optical Fibers, Crystal Structure and Material Science.

Course Requirements

  • A pre-university level knowledge of physics, preferably of Halliday & Resnick standards.
  • A basic knowledge of calculus and trigonometry.
  • Interest to learn and enjoy life!

Exams

There will be two internal tests each for 50 marks and one end-semester exam for 100 marks which will be conducted by VTU. The internal tests will be scaled to 25 marks. So the entire theory-part amounts to 125 marks. One internal practical exam for 25 marks and one end-semester practical exam for 50 marks which makes lab-part 75 marks. Hence, the total course will be for 200 marks.

The question papers of the internal testes along with the answers will be made available here as and when the particular test/exam is over. You can download the .pdf files by clicking on the following links.

The past VTU question papers are available here.
