Updated on: September 25th, 2023

Weightage Analysis is a technique used to determine the importance of various topics or subtopics in a particular subject. It involves analyzing the past trends of questions asked in exams or assessments and assigning weights to each topic based on their frequency and difficulty level. Weightage analysis and important topics for engineering mechanics help students to prioritize their study efforts and focus more on the topics that are more likely to appear in the exam.

Engineering Mechanics is a fundamental subject in engineering that deals with the study of forces and their effects on rigid bodies in motion or at rest. The subject covers a wide range of topics including kinematics, dynamics, statics, mechanics of materials, and more. So, here we are giving the Weightage Analysis and important topics for Engineering Mechanics which have appeared in previous year’s exams in ISRO

Weightage Analysis and Important Topics for Engineering Mechanics for ISRO

Engineering Mechanics is the most basic subject in Mechanical engineering as the concepts begin from the school level for every graduate. The level of questions and the syllabus does not vary a lot from the previous one. Even during graduation candidates go through the subject in the very first year. But this does not reduce the importance of Engineering mechanics in any competitive exam. Weightage analysis and important topics for engineering mechanics will help the candidates to score better in competitive exams like ISRO.
