Physics Numericals, Numerical Problems & Important Questions for high school

Numericals or Numerical Problems in Physics is one of the most challenging pillars of high school physics studies. To understand a topic in High School Physics we must solve some numerical, otherwise, we can’t say that the concept is clear enough.

We understand the importance of solving problems confidently. Hence along with regular online Physics tutorials, we have been also posting numerical problem sets.

These papers cover different topics and chapters. We will be putting such links in a single place (on this page). Please watch this place for the same.

Physics Numericals, Numerical Problems, and Important Questions

Numericals — Links to the problem sets

The first link below consists of more than 100 numerical problems from important chapters of class 9 syllabus of multiple boards. It is equally good and useful for high school students and candidates appearing for different competitive examinations (UPSC etc) with physics in the syllabus.
here goes the link for you.
