About Physics Department:

Physics was introduced in the college in the year 1926 at the Intermediate level and later at Undergraduate level. Several scholastic academicians served Physics Department Prof. A.V.Narasimham ,Prof. T.N. Seshadri [Designed Physical constants & Mathematical Tables],Prof.K.R.Ramanathan , Dr.Pingali Venkatramaiah, Major Punnaiah ,Sri.B.V.R.Subba Rao,Sri.P.S.Ramachandra Rao , Sri.R.Srikanthan .

The department had preserved century old and rare apparatus and equipment, which are still in good working condition even after several decades of usage. The old apparatus include the working model of steam engine, experimental demonstration of Faraday’s electromagnetic induction, rheostats, calorimeters, DC voltmeters, Milliammeters, cinema projector & camera, which were procured in the laboratory during the British period in 1920s and 1930s ..
