About The Book

Engineering Physics is designed as a textbook for the first year undergraduate engineering students of a two-semester course in engineering physics
Beginning with a discussion on ultrasonics, lasers and fibre optics, the book goes on to discuss quantum and crystal physics, and conducting, semiconducting and superconducting materials. It also discusses magnetic, dielectric, and modern engineering materials.

Each chapter is pedagogically strong with learning objectives, solved examples, recapitulation, review questions, and numerical problems. Chapters also include short-answer questions with answers from previous years’ university question papers
