Also Read: Latest CBSE Syllabus of Classes 9 to 12 for 2018-19

As CBSE Board Exams are near, Class 12 Board students start working extra hard to score high in Board Exams.Now a days students got very tensed about PHYSICS and try to search like -
  • Important Topics for Class 12 Physics
  • Most Important derivations in Class 12 Physics
  • Important derivations on Electrostatics and Magnetism  etc.

Although All the Topics mentioned in CBSE Class 12 Physics Syllabus are Important ,but the weightage of Derivations in CBSE Class 12 Physics Board Exam is high. So, after analysis of Previous Years Question Papers and Sample Papers issued by CBSE, we have prepapred a complete list of Most Important derivations in Class 12 Physics,which we are going to provide you below :
