Foundation Science for Engineers
by K.L. Watson
This volume aims to provides the reader with the necessary grounding, principally in physics, which will allow them to subsequently embark on an engineering degree course. Together, they offer a complete package for the 12-month course. This edition has been revised to include new topics.
This book is intended primarily for students without science A-levels or the equivalent who are entering an engineering degree or Higher National Diploma course via a foundation year.
In this new edition the coverage has been extended to include five new topics: one deals with the nucleus, and the others extend the discussion of materials into the first year degree and diploma context. There is a new appendix on calculation technique.
