How to understand physics even if you do not like it:

Physics is a very interesting subject, Love of many and hated by many more, the way of studying of most of the students is what makes studies boring. Let’s see it like this; whenever we play any game of our interest we enjoy it, Interesting things are always enjoyable, and enjoyable things are easy to remember or learn, Interest is the key to learn anything regardless of the field. The word exam is the spoiler here. Just imagine, if you are told that there will be a test on the basis of what you read every morning in the newspaper, you will not enjoy reading newspaper anymore You will see the difference in the way of reading and remembering news and facts, it was better before without any pressure of (exam).

It’s very simple, what we have to do is just start enjoying what we study, when you will enjoy you will start imagining about things. When you have started enjoying physics, you will experience a different world. It’s the most basic and important part of our life, Start feeling the force you apply on your Smartphone, The radiations from sun, the torque of your bike, the resistance of wind etc.

Whenever you study physics just imagine the problems you face and the probable reason of it according to you, it may be wrong or right but at the end you have started feeling it. You will imagine more often then, you will feel fun solving problems, you will remember concepts and then will solve problems, you will love it. Think a bit abnormally and you will evolve to be more normal and smarter than others.

Play with it like a game, Take interest Marks are the result of knowledge, and knowledge is related to your understandings, your understandings are related to your imaginations. Read it like a newspaper or a novel, read it as many times as you can, but don’t cram it or learn it. Read it as if you want knowledge and nothing else. Imagine the illustrations, play with them in your mind, Let them confuse you, solve them and you will end up remembering most of the facts and illustrations and derivations and theorems that too for a very long time and eventually you will be clear on concepts as well.

Otherwise everyone has that boring way of cramming things and getting marks, but for remembering concepts you need to understand them. When you are clear on concepts, physics will be very easy for you, Start practicing problems, sit and think and imagine. Slowly and steadily you will be better than the most. Hard work is important as well, you just can’t sit and solve everything, use pencil and paper as you can erase and use the same paper many times. We need to think about environment as well otherwise there will be no one left to feel and imagine physics. But physics, like a boss will always exist.

Obviously this method cannot be applied just before exams as it takes time, but this definitely helps, At least give it a try.

If you just want to clear exams and have no affection for physics then you just need to study important topics, analyze the past year’s papers and you will know the important topics , solve problems, most of  times the question is simple but the way of asking is a bit tricky so work on that as well, try to remember very basic concepts as you can always use them.

 How to learn physics through online courses   :

How to learn physics with online courses 2020
learn physics online

  These days there are so many fantastic courses online; it is not hard to get started, Try a few until you find one where you like the professor and the method, Do the homework and read the recommended reading (it may work to skip it in some subjects, but not in physics - it is through this that the concepts get into your brain!).

In the old this, this might have seemed a poor substitute for a real class with a live teacher, Today with the quality of online teaching, this is probably better than a real class in some ways - if you are truly committed to it. For a complex subject like physics, it is very valuable to be able to pause and even re-view parts of the lecture which were not clear the first time, and to wait until you’ve fully grasped them before moving on. This is hard to do in a real class, but online you can do it.

However, if you reach a point where you need to get a real human face-to-face interaction, there are many options for that too - MOOC’s have local study groups, while there can also be courses in local colleges, or people willing to give one-on-one lessons.

and if you get far enough, as an inspiration, there is a fantastic set of lectures by Prof Leonard Susskind of Stanford, on YouTube, which will teach you about all the modern physics (relativity, quantum mechanics, cosmology) with the “minimum” level of math’s needed to truly understand them (as Einstein said, everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler). So unlike so many popular science books and TV-shows, this course includes the math needed to grasp the concepts, but at the “theoretical minimal” level to make it as accessible as possible. You can already start, of course but it might be discouraging if you don’t have some basics and you get lost.

But if you get through some basic physics courses and then this one, you will truly be able to understand physics and follow any discussion.

 

Best way to study physics and application of mathematics:

Physics is an application of mathematics, but it’s got one major advantage over pure math: it always models real-world phenomenon, this means that it’s usually easier to visualize physics concepts.

Think about it, what seems easier to visualize: a car changing velocity over a specific time span (acceleration), this is important because physics is all about conceptual understanding. A good physics curriculum will require you to develop a conceptual understanding of the subject in order to pass exams, If you can ace tests just by memorizing formulas, you’re not truly appreciating physics.

The best way to study physics is to try to visualize everything you read about. Don’t just memorize the kinematic equations, learn why they work. How are they derived? How do they relate to integral calculus? Draw picture after picture, graph after graph, Solve a lots of problems, especially the word problems that require you to figure out what equations you need to use in the context of a real-world problem.

Read your textbook and Read sections of a different textbook, Watch countless videos on YouTube. Oftentimes a difficult concept becomes clearer when we hear various different explanations, Space out your study time, and revisit old problems often.

Lastly appreciate physics for what it is. This relates back to my original point at the beginning of this answer. Understanding physics lets you understand the real world. Even if you never use it again in your life, studying it will teach you to appreciate the world around you.

As hard as it can be, don’t look at it as boring work. Don’t look at it as a bunch of abstract numbers and equations, especially when you first study a new concept and no part of it makes sense yet. You are studying the real world, not ink on a page. Don’t give up.

 Important advice to learn physics effectively: 

Important advice to learn physics effectively:
study Physics effectively 2020

   To study Physics effectively, you need to first understand the concepts. Physics can be related to the everyday phenomena that you see around you, so you don’t really need to go to a lab to understand it, you can just feel it!

1.       Getting started, first you need to find a reliable book to study the subject from, since you did not mention what standard Physics you’re studying, I can’t assume anything. So, if you’re studying Physics at levels up to 10th grade, refer ABC Physics books. If you’re studying in 11th/12th grade, refer Concepts of Physics book by H.C Verma: These are amazing books which actually help you develop a lot of interest in the subject with everything explained with simplification.

 

Don’t just read, think whenever you study Physics, study with an open mind and don’t just confine yourself to the text, explore online too! Think about related phenomena!

2.   For example, if you just studied the Newton’s third law of motion (Every action has an equal and opposite reaction) and closed your book, and later, in the exam, got a question “Swimming in the water is possible due to which law of motion?, you won’t be able to answer it right away, because it requires thinking and relating the third law of motion with real life! Hence, only reading text will never help in Physics. You will have to think harder and relate to it.

 

3.   Never study Physics with an attitude like (I have to study this because I have to write this in the exam). Rather study it like you have to teach the concepts to someone. I used this trick so much! I would first read and understand a concept, then close the book and teach the concept to a wall. If I fumbled, I’d go back to the theory, study again, and teach again! This really helped me get crystal clear concepts.

 

4.   A great way to understand physics concepts is by videos online! Just type your topic and you well find so many animations and video lectures out there! You will have to invest some time, but once you get the concept right, it’s worth it

5.   Refer MIT Physics lectures on YouTube πŸ‘ˆ, they’re indeed the most amazing lectures you’ll find, or you can also refer Khan Academy videos online!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

 

6.   Immediately after you’ve learned and understood a concept, solve at least 10 numerical based on it. This helps you retain the concept better and discover more dimensions to view the same concept from.

7.   Lastly, revise physics concepts from time to time.
