This book, now in its Third Edition, is designed as a textbook for first-year undergraduate engineering students. It covers all the relevant and vital topics, lucidly and straightforwardly. This book emphasizes the basic concept of physics for engineering students. It covers the topics like properties of matter, acoustics, ultrasonics with their industrial and medical applications, quantum physics, lasers along with their industrial and medical applications, fibre optics with its uses in optical communication and fibre optic sensors, wave optics, crystal physics, and imperfection in solids.
This book contains numerous solved problems, short and descriptive type questions and exercise problems. It will help students assess their progress and familiarize them with the types of questions set in examinations.
