A Textbook of Engineering Physics is written with two distinct objectives : to provide a single source of information for engineering undergraduates of different specializations and provide them a solid base in Physics. Successive editions of the book incorporated topics as required by students pursuing their studies in various universities. In this new edition the contents are fine-tuned, modernized and updated at various stages. Physics is not an isolated body of theories which merely serve vocational usefulness. What has been achieved in physics has sooner or later made tremendous impact on the technological growth of our society. To become active participants in the technological revolution, one has to necessarily acquaint himself with the methods of science. Mechanical memorizing of certain definitions and derivations does not belong to the method of science and as such is of little value to the student. The main purpose of teaching physics to engineering undergraduates is to equip them with an understanding of the "scientific method", so that they may use the training beneficially in their higher pursuits. An earnest attempt is made in this direction right from the first edition of this book by blending careful presentation of fundamental concepts and methods of physics. This edition retains the original theme of emphasis on concepts with less mathematical formalism. The practical applications are discussed at each stage. The question bank given at the end of each chapter is updated. At a number of places, points for refinement are noticed and those have been incorporated. We have gladly received and carefully considered suggestions from professors and students who have used earlier editions. Further suggestions for improvement of the quality and quantity of the content are most welcome. CONTENTS: I. ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC FIELDS : 1. Introduction 2. Electric Charge 3. Coulomb Force 4.
