Primarily written for the first year undergraduate students of engineering, “A Textbook of Engineering Physics” also serves as a reference text for B.Sc students, technologists and practitioners.
The book explains all the relevant and important topics in an easy-to-understand manner. Forty chapters, beginning with a detailed discussion on oscillation, the book goes on to discuss optical fibres, lasers and nanotechnology. A rich pedagogy helps in understanding of every concept explained.
A book which has seen, foreseen and incorporated changes in the subject for more than 25 years, it continues to be one of the most sought after texts by the students.

Key Features:

  • 40 chapters ensure that every crucial concept is given due importance for this fundamental subject.
  • More than 1200 examples and figures aid to the concepts explained.
  • 1800+ chapter-end questions and problems enhance the practice quotient of the book.
