What is Chemistry

Chemistry is a branch of science which studies the composition, structure and formula of matter and material. The topics of study include atoms, molecules, bonds, compounds, mixtures and chemical reactions to name a few. Chemistry can be divided into three broad areas of study- Organic, Inorganic and Physical Chemistry. The discipline is also considered to be a bridge between other science branches like Physics, Geology and Biology. Chemistry is an indispensable part of our daily lives as everything around us is a sum total of chemical formulas. It is widely present in our everyday lives, be it the food we consume or medicine or tangible objects of regular use including plastics, glass and metals. Each object or component that we use has been created as a result of reaction between two or more chemical elements. The discipline enables us to know the properties of the elements and decide the usage accordingly.

How to revise chemistry for jee main at home

Manisha 6th Apr, 2020

Hello Pavani

Firstly divide your study time ( excluding your sleep time and your other routine) into 2 parts. Half of time give to main subject maths or biology.

Other half to Physics and Chemistry. Revise minimum 3-4 chapters of chemistry daily. Give minimum 2 hrs to solve  chemistry MCQs on your own. Don't stick to difficult topics which you are not able to do . Revise whatever  syllabus you have completed properly. Next day start with where you have left the previous day. ( Next chapters) revise for 10 minutes what you did previous day. Do numericals carefully.

Give morning time to physics and inorganic chemistry. In this way you will feel confidence  about completion of your syllabus.
