Description

The objective of Engineering Chemistry is to build a solid foundation in fundamentals of chemistry and an interface of theoretical concepts with their industrial/applications. This book is designed as an introductory course in Engineering Chemistry with complete coverage. It aims to imparts students as in-depth knowledge of various aspects of chemistry as applied to engineering. The lucid explanation of the topics will help students understand the fundamental concepts and apply them to solve the problems. An attempt has been made to logically correlate topics with their applications.
