## Basic technical physicsThis one-semester survey of principles of physics for technical students emphasizes practical applications that represent a broad coverage of physics as it relates to thevarious technical areas. The concepts presented allow students to relate the principles of physics to practical job-related applications. The questions and problems at the end of each chapter have been carefully chosen for their realistic application to industry and for their instructional value. The only mathematics prerequisite is the algebra necessary to understand simple formulas. For teaching convenience, the more difficult sections of the text, which are optional, are identified by asterisks in the table of contents. |
