Science for Engineering offers an introductory textbook for students of engineering science and assumes no prior background in engineering. John Bird focuses upon examples rather than theory, enabling students to develop a sound understanding of engineering systems in terms of the basic laws and principles. This book includes over 580 worked examples, 1300 further problems, 425 multiple choice questions (with answers), and contains sections covering the mathematics that students will require within their engineering studies, mechanical applications, electrical applications and engineering systems.
This new edition of Science for Engineering covers the fundamental scientific knowledge that all trainee engineers must acquire in order to pass their exams. It has also been brought fully in line with the compulsory science and mathematics units in the new engineering course specifications.
Supported by free lecturer materials that can be found at www.routledge/cw/bird This resource includes full worked solutions of all 1300 of the further problems for lecturers/instructors use, and the full solutions and marking scheme for the fifteen revision tests. In addition, all illustrations will be available for downloading.
