Applied Physics has been developed for the first and second semester engineering students. It rekindles the interest of engineering students in physics by highlighting the close links between physics and engineering. The book is tailored to suit the needs of a wider student community that follows a syllabus oriented approach.
There are charts to facilitate quicker and more comprehensive understanding of different topics, stitched and woven together, to speed up preparation for examinations. Boxes are used to highlight derivations of important expressions to offer clarity in framing answers in examinations. Boxes are also provided for introduction to special topics to provide windows to look beyond the syllabus. Several numerical problems, largely from previous university examinations, are provided. Theory and problems together enahnce working clarity of concepts to gain the necessary quantitative appreciation.
