Class 12th Physics: Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter, Tips, Tricks, and much more!

Here you’re! Modern Physics *drum rolls*

The dual nature of Radiation requires a good amount of conceptual clarity and most importantly, the theory, and to fix that, you hunt for good resources. And for that Doubtconnect is here, We’re gonna list down all the things that you require for the Chapter, Dual nature of Radiation.

So before we get into the chapter, let’s see what we’re gonna deal with inside this chapter.

  • Electron Emission
  • Photoelectric effect
  • Experimental Study of Photoelectric effect
  • Photoelectric Effect and Wave theory of Light
  • Einstein’s Photoelectric Equation: Energy Quantum of Radiation
  • Particle Nature of Light: the Photon
  • Wave Nature of Light

One Short Notes

(we don’t claim this, it was available on the internet). Well, It’s just for your benefit.

So Now let’s see how we’re gonna go through it.

At first, you need to go through concepts, concepts will be developed after watching a good amount of animated content or any content related to it.

So here are a few video suggestions. We’ll cover both free and paid content, here’s the list.

  • Modern Physics, Sachin Sir Physics, Youtube (Free)
  • Vedantu Youtube (Free)
  • Apni Kaksha,Youtube (Free)
  • Modern Physics by Physicswallah (Free + Paid)
  • Modern Physics by Unacademy (Free + Paid)
  • NV Sir, Modern Physics, Etoos (Paid)


So, once you’re done with understanding the concept through visualization, you have to come to read the theory line by line. And for that, you need a good book. It was fine while grabbing the concept through books, but now you need to remember it, so read any of the books thoroughly mentioned below.

  • NOTE: Read NCERT Physics, before any of these books.
  • HC Verma

Indian God of Physics, is one of the best things you can find. The book is sufficient till Mains and touches a little bit of Advance.

  • Coaching Material

Any good coaching material of reputed institutes like FIITJEE, Reso, Allen, and Aakash. You can even try something from Physics Wallah or Unacademy.

  • SL Arora

A good catch for the Mid-level entrance examination is SL Arora, although a lot of people get it as a Class 12 refresher book, but still a good choice.

    Here comes the man, the myth, and the legend, which you won’t be able to solve in this entire lifespan, jk. Written by a freaky Russian scientist, is one of the most ideal books for Advance.


Although there are not many numerical to practice in this chapter, there can be a lot of conceptual questions too. So just be prepared for it by revising your notes again and again.

And one very important suggestion is that you should be SHORT NOTES, especially for this chapter. (Game Changer). You can refer to the short notes that we have attached to the blog.

So this is all that you need to conquer this chapter as nothing more is required. Dual Nature, Done and Dusted once you’re done doing all the things mentioned above.

And yeah, Don’t put yourself into that dilemma. What if I don’t score well? See Bud, You’ll make it either this way or that way, nothing’s gonna stop you from achieving what you want.

“Once you’re fearless, nothing can stop you” and be fearless from this board exam and relax, sit back and be ready for the fight!
