This book has been designed to serve as a comprehensive text on Engineering Physics that especially meets the requirements of engineering students enrolling in first year. This book is the outcome of more than a decade of my classroom teaching through notes, lectures and assignments prepared for my students. Moreover, the various discussions on different topics with the past year students has helped to shape this book. That is why, the material of the book is built with student-friendly approach and is presented in context of conceptual framework which is comprehensive and cohesive. Each chapter is well grounded which delineates the fundamental concepts of physics and their applications.
