Managing Editor : Mahabir Singh
Editor : anil ahlawat (BE, MBa) The first is the fear of exams which all of us have felt. To combat this, the
advice is to hold a week-long examination festival, two times a year, with
contents satirical poems on exams, cartoon contents and lectures on the psychological
effects of exams with debates to pepper the lectures.

PHYSICS MUSING
P hysics Musing was started in August 2013 issue of Physics For You with the suggestion of Shri Mahabir Singh. The aim of Physics
Musing is to augment the chances of bright students preparing for JEE (Main and Advanced) / AIIMS / Other PMTs with additional
study material.
In every issue of Physics For You, 10 challenging problems are proposed in various topics of JEE (Main and Advanced) / various PMTs.
The detailed solutions of these problems will be published in next issue of Physics For You.
The readers who have solved five or more problems may send their solutions. The names of those who send atleast five correct solutions
will be published in the next issue.
We hope that our readers will enrich their problem solving skills through Physics Musing and stand in better stead while facing the
competitive exams.
