VITEEE Syllabus


1. Laws of Motion & Work, Energy and Power:
Law of conservation of linear momentum and its applications. Static and kinetic friction – laws of friction – rolling friction – lubrication. Work done by a constant force and a variable force; kinetic energy – work-energy theorem – power. Conservative forces: conservation of mechanical energy (kinetic and potential energies) – non-conservative forces: motion in a vertical circle – elastic and inelastic collisions in one and two dimensions.

2. Properties of Matter:
Elastic behaviour – Stress-strain relationship – Hooke’s law – Young’s modulus – bulk modulus – shear modulus of rigidity – Poisson’s ratio – elastic energy. Viscosity – Stokes’ law – terminal velocity – streamline and turbulent flow – critical velocity. Bernoulli’s theorem and its applications. Heat – temperature – thermal expansion: thermal expansion of solids – specific heat capacity: Cp, Cv – latent heat capacity. Qualitative ideas of Blackbody radiation: Wein’s displacement Law – Stefan’s law.

3. Electrostatics:
Charges and their conservation; Coulomb’s law-forces between two point electric charges -Forces between multiple electric charges-superposition principle.Electric field –electric field due to a point charge, electric field lines; electric dipole, electric field intensity due to a dipole -behaviourof a dipole in a uniform electric field.

Electric potential -potential difference-electric potential due to a point charge and dipole-equipotential surfaces –electrical potential energy of a system of two point charges.Electric flux-Gauss’s theorem and its applications.

Electrostatic induction-capacitor and capacitance –dielectric and electric polarisation –parallel plate capacitor with and without dielectric medium –applications of capacitor –energy stored in a capacitor -Capacitors in series and in parallel –action of points –Van de Graaff generator.


1. Atomic Structure:
Bohr’s atomic model-Sommerfeld’s extension of atomic structure; Electronic configuration and Quantum numbers; Shapes of s,p,d,f orbitals – Pauli’s exclusion principle – Hund’s Rule of maximum multiplicity- Aufbau principle.

Emission and absorption spectra, line and band spectra; Hydrogen spectrum – Lyman, Balmer, Paschen, Brackett and Pfund series; deBroglie’s theory; Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle – wave nature of electron – Schrodinger wave equation (No derivation). Eigen values and eigen functions. Hybridization of atomic orbitals involving s,p and d orbitals.

2. p,d and f – Block Elements:
p-block elements – Phosphorous compounds; PCl3, PCl5 – Oxides. Hydrogen halides, Inter halogen compounds. Xenon fluoride compounds. General Characteristics of d – block elements – Electronic Configuration – Oxidation states of first row transition elements and their colours.

Occurrence and principles of extraction: Copper, Silver, Gold and Zinc. Preparation and properties of CuSO4, AgNO3 and K2Cr2O7. Lanthanides – Introduction, electronic configuration, general characteristics, oxidation state – lanthanide contraction, uses, brief comparison of Lanthanides and Actinides.


1. Matrices and their Applications:
Adjoint, inverse – properties, computation of inverses, solution of system of linear equations by matrix inversion method. Rank of a matrix – elementary transformation on a matrix, consistency of a system of linear equations, Cramer’s rule, non-homogeneous equations, homogeneous linear system and rank method. Solution of linear programming problems (LPP) in two variables.

2. Trigonometry and Complex Numbers:
Definition, range, domain, principal value branch, graphs of inverse trigonometric functions and their elementary properties. Complex number system – conjugate, properties, ordered pair representation. Modulus – properties, geometrical representation, polar form, principal value, conjugate, sum, difference, product, quotient, vector interpretation, solutions of polynomial equations, De Moivre’s theorem and its applications.

Roots of a complex number – nth roots, cube roots, fourth roots.


1. Taxonomy:
Need for classification; three domains of life. Linnaean, Whittaker, Bentham and Hooker systems of classification. Salient features and classification of non-chordates up to phyla levels and chordates up to class levels. Morphology and anatomy of flowering plants. Structural organization in insects(cockroach)

2. Cell and Molecular Biology:
Cell theory. Prokaryotic cell and it’s ultrastructure. Eukaryotic cell- cell wall, cell membrane, cytoskeleton, nucleus, chloroplast, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi bodies, ribosomes, lysosomes, vacuoles and centrosomes. Cell cycle and division – amitosis, mitosis and meiosis. Search for genetic material; structure of DNA and RNA; replication, transcription, genetic code, translation, splicing, gene expression and regulation (lac operon) and DNA repair.
