iit jee syllabus physical chemistry
Basic concepts in chemistry
The syllabus of jee mains chemistry consists basic concepts of chemistry and also the calculation part like errors and others which is both in jee mains and advanced syllabus and in jee advance syllabus chemical solution chapter covers topics like molality etc.
This chapter covers only 2-3% marks in chemistry paper and it is the most important topic of physical chemistry which helps in solving numerical problems.
Gaseous and liquid state
Boyle’s law, Charle’s law is mentioned in Jee main syllabus not mentioned in jee advance syllabus but it is a part of general gas laws and all other is same in gaseous state part.
The liquid state part of jee main syllabus is basically a part of physics syllabus already and it is not included in jee advanced chemistry.
In jee mains syllabus the part of solid state has difference in syllabus as mentioned it is Bragg’s law and its application and electric,magnetic and dielectric properties.So take care when you study it.
The Weight-age of states of matter is about 4% and it is simple to score in it.
solid state also shares a 3% of marks in iitjee chemistry paper but it is tough going topic for students.
In jee advanced syllabus the topic of Thomson and Rutherford atomic models is not mentioned so leave it after mains.
The variation of wave function and square of wave function is not mention in jee advance syllabus but it is general to learn with wave model of hydrogen atom that is well mentioned in advance syllabus.
The topic of extra stability of half filled and completely filled orbitals is also mentioned in jee main but it is a must to learn topic for jee advance as well.
Atomic structure covers an average of 4% marks in chemistry paper and this is not only easy to score but very useful to understand concepts of chemistry.So never ignore this chapter.
Chemical bonding and molecular structure
In jee mains syllabus mentioned the topic of Kossel – Lewis approach and other things like ionic bond and resonance but this topics are not mentioned in jee advance is important for jee advance as well.
The average weight-age of chemical bonding is 4 to 5% in iitjee chemistry paper.
chemical bonding is little bit difficult but must do topic of chemistry without it no one can master chemistry for iitjee mains and advanced.
Although there is a visible difference in both iitjee syllabus in the initial lines of text but it is almost same.
The topic of Enthalpy of atomization and sublimation is also useful for jee advanced although not mentioned separately.
Thermodynamics is a simple topic and it covers an average of 3% marks in chemistry paper.
Chemical and ionic Equilibrium
The difference is Equilibria involving physical processes,Arrhenius concept is clear while all things mentioned in jee main is also in jee advance even it is not mentioned clearly.
Equilibrium is the topic of calculation and various concepts and the 5% of marks comes from this chapter.
This topic helps to understand and solve electrochemistry problems as well so it is also must do topic for iit jee main and advance.
In both the exams of jee mains and advanced the syllabus of Chemical solution chapter is same although osmotic pressure and the topic of Van’t Hoff factor is not mention in jee advance syllabus it is only for the jee mains.
The topic of Chemical solution is a simple topic if mole concept is done very well and my experience says that student unnecessary considers it as a difficult topic.
Redox reactions and electrochemistry
Redox reaction is a part of jee main it is not mentioned in jee advance.The syllabus of electrochemistry is very much same in both jee mains and advanced.
The topic of Faraday’s laws is not mentioned in jee main.
The topic of redox reaction shares a 2-3 % of marks in exams and this topic takes time to understand the concepts involved in it.
In a chemistry the chapter of electrochemistry is the most difficult chapter and it covers an average of 4-5% of marks in iitjee exam.
For iitjee students chemistry is a soft target but electrochemistry makes student’s path little tough.
first order reaction is mentioned in jee advanced syllabus and the zero order reaction is mentioned in jee mains.
The topic of Zero order reaction is a very small.Factors affecting rate of reaction is not mentioned in jee advanced syllabus but it is a part of it.
Arrhenius theory is important for both the exams of jee mains and advanced.
The topic of Chemical kinetics is a very simple topic and its covers a 4% of marks in chemistry paper.
The syllabus of Adsorption and colloidal state is same in both the exams of jee mains and advanced in which only the text look is different.
The topic of Adsorption and colloidal state is small and theoretical.
If we have done nuclear physics we have done nuclear chemistry as well,and this both the topics are simple and its a very scoring topic of physics and chemistry.
In jee exams the topic of Periodicity is the most important topic,so never leave any part of it anywhere.
iit jee syllabus inorganic chemistry
The part of Metallurgy mentioned in jee main syllabus is also in jee advance apart from it jee advance includes the more metals and their extraction process.These metals are (Au, Ag, Mg, Pb and Sn).
The topic of ores and minerals is only mentioned in jee advanced.
The topic of Metallurgy covers a 2-3% marks in chemistry paper and this topic is requires reading and memory to retain knowledge.
The topic of Hydrogen is only the syllabus of jee main is not asked in jee advance.
S – Block elements
The topic of s block element is mentioned only in jee main syllabus is not asked in jee advance.
In jee main syllabus includes the topic of Alkali And Alkaline Earth Metals,but this topic is not mentioned in jee advanced syllabus.
P – Block Elements
Both the exams of jee mains and advanced covers many elements and but to know more correct about to what extent which element is in syllabus read jee syllabus carefully and see past years problems before starting a topic.
The elements of S and p block and their compounds shares a 8% marks in chemistry paper.
d – and f – Block elements
The syllabus of d block element is same in both the jee mains and advanced,but the syllabus of f block is not in jee advance.
The topic of Transition elements covers an average of 2% of marks in exam,and in this topic needs more deep understanding of element and their properties.
“Bonding-Valence bond to metals in biological systems” is mentioned only in jee main syllabus its do not match with jee advanced syllabus.
The syllabus of jee advance is focused on geometry of coordination compound with knowledge of hybridization.
The topic of Co-ordination compound shares a 3% marks and it is a good topic to scores in exam.
This topic does not require too much reading,it only requires the concepts of many compounds.
The topic of Environmental chemistry is mentioned only in jee mains it is not asked in jee advanced.
