ECAT Entry Test - Physics

Physics is one of the four parts of ECAT paper. This portion contains 30 questions. The chapters and topics of Physics the engineering college entry test includes have been covered in Physics section of ECAT at You can watch the video lectures delivered by professional and well experienced teachers who will teach you the concepts of Physics. They will also tell you how to study the subject in order to gain full score in the exam

Subject Details

University of Engineering College (UET) ECAT contains MCQs of 120 marks from Physics. These MCQs are based on theory and formulae. Students can attempt these questions if they have grabbed the concepts listed in their intermediate books. The Physics part contains total thirty questions, each of four marks. Leave the question unattempted, if you are not sure about the answer. A wrong answer will lead you to the marks deduction from whole.


  • Measurement:

In this chapter students will get the concepts of physical quantities, international system of units, prefixes, uncertainty and error.

  • Vector and Equilibrium:

Here students will learn different types of vectors, their components and resolution, their product. They will also study about torque and equilibrium conditions.

  • Motion and Force:

This chapter deals with everything related to motion and force, such as distance, displacement, velocity, and Newton’s laws.


  • Work

Here students will get the concept of work, its unit and derivation, kinetic energy, potential energy and power.



  • Circular Motion 

This chapter explores topics relevant to angular motion, i.e., angular displacement, angular velocity and the relation between angular and linear velocity.


  • Fluid Dynamics:

Fluid dynamics deals with fluids and effects of force on them.


  • Oscillations:

This chapter discuss the oscillation concepts such as simple harmonic motion, vibration, amplitude, frequency, phase, conservation of energy and resonance.


  • Waves:

Here learners will study various types of waves, speed of sound in air, beat, Doppler effect and interference.


  • Physical Optics:

This chapter deals wave propagation principle, double slit experiment, rings, diffraction grating and polarization.

This chapter explores microscopes, telescope, optical fibres and their related phenomena.


  • Electrostatics

It explores effect of current on stationary charges. Here students will learn about electric field, electric potential and Coulomb’s law.


  • Current Electricity

This chapter explores current, ohm’s law, electromotive force, conductors, resistivity and conservation of charges.


  • Electromagnetism 

Here students will learn the mutual behavior of electricity and magnetism, DC motor, induction, AC generator and transformer.


  • Alternating Current:

This chapter explores AC circuits, passage of alternating current through resistor and capacitor, impedance and series and parallel circuits.


  • Physics of Solids:

This chapter classifies solids; tells about stress, strain, elastic constants, characteristics of solids, energy band theory and superconductors.


  • Electronics

It deals with rectification, transistors, p-n junction, digital systems etc.


  • Dawn of Modern Physics

Here students explore frames of reference, relativity theory, interaction of matter with radiation and uncertainty.


  • Atomic Spectra and Nuclear Physics:

Here students will study quantization, x-rays, laser, radioactivity and its emission and fission & fusion reactions.
