Engineering Physics has been conceived to develop a coherent, comprehensive and practical view of physics among engineering students. This will help them to develop fundamental ways of thinking and inventing in their future engineering practice. The book attempts to break the monotony of just stating theoretical concepts through the following 5 special features: The historical development of the subject is traced to show interesting links between the various topics.
Theory and experiment are integrated and learning through scientific method is emphasised by seeking agreement between theory and experiment. Numerical problems are included at appropriate places to offer quantitative appreciation of parameters involved. Charts are used to facilitate comparative learning of topics that share the same unifying and founding aspects. Applications of each topic are discussed at the end of the chapter to give an idea of how engineering grows through the utilitarian translation of discoveries and concepts in physics.
