Is there a Mechanism
Disclaimer: I’ll be discussing things in terms of JEE advanced, I believe that If you master the aspects of JEE advanced then JEE Main becomes child’s play.
Now… it is not me who is answering, it is the very nature of the question papers which is answering.
The best method is to focus on understanding the concepts rather than rattafication ( rote learning ).
You need to think about :
Why does that reaction happen?
What is the driving force behind the reactions?
What are the conditions in which a particular group of elements or compounds behave in a certain way?
Why is this an exceptional order?
You need to know the answer to these questions. For that to happen, you need to ask these questions.
Just like Organic!
In Inorganic too, there are concepts and mechanisms.
And …each and every JEE aspirant need to understand this.
Obviously, this blog is insufficient to provide YOU with that. But let’s figure out the solution to this!
To start you need to fix these 4 most important points first:
Complete Facts and Reactions of NCERT
Stick to the syllabus of JEE Advanced because paper setters to stick to it.
The practice is needed in Inorganic too. So, take care of that too.
Make sure you make proper short-notes to take care of your revision.
Adding more to it...
YES, it is important to learn inorganic reactions for both JEE Main and Advanced. But there is something which is even more important.
The Method of Learning those reactions...
You can either simply try to force everything in your brain without using your intellect or creativity or you can the intellect and creativity them to keep things in a nice way. If not your’s then why not of someone else’s.
If you try to learn or remember things that you don’t understand, you think will it last for long?
NOT AT ALL !!
So, the KEY is to understand the reactions.
If you understand the reactions, learning them will become a spontaneous process ( delta G < 0 ), and remembering them will become a fast process ( Ea will decrease ).
Let me tell you THE TRUTH about understanding these Inorganic Reactions - These reactions follow a certain set of rules and have a clear mechanism!
Just as Organic reactions - Inorganic reactions too have mechanisms.
It is just that - are you willing to pay some attention to it or you will simply go by what some other person says?
The problem is - Nobody tells this to you!
They say - “ Inorganic is memory-based, so just learn it. This is how I did, this is how you must do.”
It is not so … It gets logical as you go deep into it.
If you can’t figure out those mechanisms by yourself - No Problem ! because you are a student and it cannot be expected from you. We, teachers need to take care of that. You just need to do this, ENSURE that you learn it dedicatedly. We are always willing to teach YOU. Parth Chopra teaches the complete Inorganic Chemistry of JEE with proper mechanism so that you don’t ever cram inorganic chemistry in his courses.
First of all, ensure the 4 points mentioned above.
Think about the what and why of each and every reaction YOU encounter.
Understand that in inorganic too reactions follow a set of rules(YES! they too have mechanisms).
STOP cramming reactions of Inorganic.
Spend more time with every reaction, try to relate the previous step to the next one
Yes, it’s a bit tough for students to figure out the mechanisms themselves. And if the coaching system around you(local/online), simply don’t know that.
Things become more difficult. BUT no need to worry, here at TJC we have solutions for each and every question.
We understood the needs of the JEE Aspirants and created the Grand Mentorship Program to solve all their problems.
