This new edition of the book continues to present the fundamental concepts of physics in a pedagogically sound manner. It includes a new chapter on Thermal Physics, which is essential for core engineering students. Furthermore, topics like crystal growth techniques, estimation of packing density of diamond and the relation between three moduli of elasticity are included at the appropriate places, to improve the understanding of the subject matter.
KEY FEATURES
• Several numerical problems (solved and unsolved) to strengthen the problem‐solving ability of students • Short and Long questions at the end of each chapter • Model Test Papers with solutions • Summary at the end of each chapter to recapitulate the most important results of the chapter
