Department Overview

About

Raja Peary Mohan College is 130 years old college and intermediate standard Physics teaching was there up to 1956. Physics as General subject was introduced in 1956 and as Honours in 1966 under Calcutta University. We still maintain a good academic atmosphere which results in consistent good results of our department.

Teaching Learning

We totally bank on direct interactive blackboard-based teaching-learning process. We use ICT in computer lab which is fitted with laptop & LCD projector.

Capacity Building

Physics Department occasionally organizes students' seminars to encourage them to cultivate the subject deeply. Students are always allowed to attend seminars/conferences in subject related topics held at other institutions. We meet parents to inform them about the progress of the students and to take feedback from them.

Student Progression

In the last few years, many students have successfully qualified for graduation and went on to pursue higher education. A few to be named includes:

1. Samapan Bhaduri (2013)                       pursuing Ph.D at NISER, Bhubaneswar
                                                                              
2. Nilanjana Nandy (2017)                       completed M.Sc. from C.U.

3. Riya Barick  (2017)                          completed M.Sc. from C.U.

Bridge Course

The Department has started a Bridge Course to help students understand the basics of practical Physics and the laboratory rules to be followed. Also, students are introduced to basic concepts of the subject needed for higher studies. Following is the basic outline of the syllabus

Core Course: 4 hours

Measurement of length (or diameter) using Vernier Calipers , Screw Gauge and Travelling Microscope , random errors in observations, mechanics of a rotating body with reference to experiments , Hook’s Law , modulus of elasticity , elastic constants by Flexure and Searle’s
method , Bar pendulum ,Kater’s pendulum , theory for measurement of height of a building by Sextant , introduction to programming language Python.

Complementary Course : 2 hours
Laboratory demonstration of measurements of length (or diameter) using Vernier Calipers, Screw Gauge and Travelling Microscope, determination of random error in observations, mechanics of a rotating body in reference to Fly-wheel and Bar pendulum experiments, determination of elastic constants by Flexture and Searle’s method .
