**To find maximum and minimum value of a given function**.

Differentiate the function first and then find the values of x at which the function becomes zero these are the possible points of Maximum and minimum values of the function then apply any of the following test

**(1) 1st derivative test:** If at any of the above values of x dy/dX changes its sign from +ve to -ve then that is a point of local Maxima.

And if dy/dX changes sign from -ve to +ve that is a point of local minima.

**(2) 2nd derivative test:** Find the 2nd derivative and put the above values of x obtained if it comes -ve that is a point of local Maxima and if it comes +ve that's a point of local minima.

Note: there can be more than 1 point of local Maxima and Minima

**Global Maximum and Minimum**: put all the values of x obtained in the function and check which one is largest, that value correspond to Global Maxima and that vale is global maximum. Similarly check for Global minima.

**Note**:sometimes 2nd derivative test fails i.e it becomes zero that that point is called point of inflection. Then check with first derivative test.

In kinematics, graph plays an important part in understanding various motions.

Commonly taught graphs for beginners are distance Vs time and displacement Vs time graph of rectilinear motion, in particular when an object is thrown vertically upwards.

The **displacement Vs time graph** in such a case is, a parabola mouth opening downwards. The derivative of this graph gives the value of velocity which gradually decreases to zero at its highest point then increases with a negative sign. But the double derivative which gives the value of acceleration remains constant throughout which is the value of g, i.e. acceleration due to gravity.

The shape of **distance Vs time graph** is a bit different. It remains same as that of displacement Vs time till first half then the curvature of the graph changes. Mathematically, such a point is called the point of inflexion where the curvature of graph changes. The important point to note here is that at the point of inflexion the double derivative is zero.

If we compare this graph with the previous one, the value of double derivative remains the same at all points except at the point of infection. It is so because the double derivative of distance Vs time graph gives "tangential acceleration". At the highest point, the velocity of the body is zero so is the value of tangential acceleration. A point which otherwise missed, if graphs are not studied properly.

**Correlation**

A measure of linear relationship between two variables independent and dependent

it is used when and Y both are continuous

**Corelation is measure with r (Coefficient of corelation)**

r values ranges from

*1) r=1 perfect positive relationship *

*2) r=0 no relationship *

*3) r=-1 negative relationship *

**Regression:**

Provides the basis for predicting the value of a variable from the values of one or more other variables

used with continuous Y and Continuous Xs or continuous Y and categorical Ys

**It is measured with r ^{2} which is known as the coefficient of determination **

*r ^{2 }tells us about the proportion of variation of Y explained by prediction equation*

**Do you know that whenever energy is added to the system, the system gains mass?**

**Is there any example of conversion of energy to mass and vice - versa? Yes.**

A spring's mass increases whenever it is put into compression or tension. Its added mass arises from the added potential energy stored within it, which is bound in the stretched chemical (electron) bonds linking the atoms within the spring.

Actually neither mass gets converted to energy nor energy gets converted to mass. Both are equivalent to each other. If you have some energy E, then you also have mass E/c^2. Similarly, if you have mass m, you have energy mc^2. So, when a high energy gamma photon converts to an electron and a positron in the presence of a nucleus, some books wrongly say that energy has got converted to matter. The right thing is: Total energy of the gamma photon, E= h nu has mass h nu/c^2 and is equal to 2 m c^2/sqrt(1-v^2/c^2) where m is the rest mass of the electron, and v is the speed of electron (positron) in the rest frame of the nucleus.

Let's look at the reverse example.

An atom is made up of number of protons, neutrons and electrons. Each element has a mass associated with it. So logically the mass of an atom should be equal to the sum total masses of all three elements multiplied by the number of such elements present in the atom. Surprisingly, it is observed that the mass of an atom is **less than** the sum total masses of all elements. Where does the mass go? This mass is converted in to Energy called **Binding Energy** of the atom and this energy keeps the protons bound together in a nucleus which otherwise should have dismantled in to the environment due to strong repulsive forces between protons. Thus mass is converted in to the energy.

There are many more such examples in the wonderful nature and physics does the job of discovering and explaining such phenomena. In short Physics is Life and Life is Physics.

This is the foremost important physics topic. Students very often than not forget Conversion of Units of physical quantities to one system while solving numerical questions. This leads to wrong answers and failure in competitive exams. Such **errors **or **failures **also cause disaster in real life making the society pay a very heavy price.

Physics is fundamentally an empirical science. Measurements, units & uncertainties are at the heart of it. All laws of nature are derived empirically and expressed by mathematical equations. How otherwise scientists can express relationships between measurable physical quantities? It is equally vital to express the measurement in right unit; else invite disaster.

The Mars Climate Orbiter costing about US$ 125 million came to a catastrophic conclusion because of **confusion** in **UNITS. **One engineering team used Metric Units while another team used English Units. As a result in September 1999 the spacecraft entered Martian atmosphere instead of reaching a stable orbit.

Equally important is Uncertainties in measurements e.g. pair of pants of size 34 that varies just 3 percent changes a full inch in waist size. It could end up a 35 and hang on the hips or a 33 making you wonder how you gained all that weight**!**

Measurements, Units and Uncertainties are crucially important and when properly implemented can create wonders in Life (and also exams); else a disaster. Students should pay utmost importance to Units, Conversion of Units and Uncertainties.
