The content of this 'Gravitation' chapter can be divided into three sections:

1. The first section deals with  'Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion' and 'Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation'.
2. The second section deals with 'Gravitational Potential' and 'Gravitational Potential Energy'.
3. The third section deals with the 'Motion of Satellites'.

In class 11 final exam the questions that may come from this chapter are ‘derivations’ or simple numerical problems based on the formulas of this chapter.

In entrance exams too the questions that come from this chapter are relatively easier because the questions are based only on the concepts of this chapter, not from a mixture of two or three chapters.  So if you make your concepts clear and remember the few formulas the chapter has, there is a hundred percent chance that you will be able to answer the questions. That's why this chapter is a ‘must study’ chapter for class 11 final as well as for entrance exams like NEET,  JEE etc.

We have a course that will make you a master of this 'Gravitation' chapter.
