Physics for Engineers is designed to serve as a text for the first course in physics for engineering students of most of the technical universities in India. It can also be used as an introductory text for science graduates.
This book, now in its Second Edition, is updated as per the feedback received from the students and faculties. Quite a number of topics have been either revised or updated, of course, maintaining flow and presentation of the book. The present approach is more focused and provides a clear, precise and accessible coverage of fundamentals of physics through succinct presentation, logical organization, and sound pedagogical order. Extensive care has been taken to apprise the students regarding the applied aspects of the concepts in physics. Most of the complex ideas are supported by explanatory figures to make the underlying concepts easy to understand and grasp. At the end of each chapter, numerous short answer questions, multiple choice questions and solved problems are included to brush up the chapter fast, quickly and effectively especially before exams.
