Physics has always been regarded as a fascinating subject by aspiring engineering students. This title covers the complete syllabus the subject in Gujarat Technological University. The basic concepts and derivations that are presented in this book are in a simple and lucid manner so that students do not find any difficulty in understating the content presented. In each module, the topics and their subtopics are logically arranged and elaborately discussed. In order to make the book more beneficial to the students, several solved examples are included in each module. At the end of each module several unsolved examples, short and long questions are included.
