"Not an engineer, but it seems easy to interpret so far" October 22, 2014
"Physics for Scientist and Engineers is a good book to buy if you are curious about the physics in engineering. There is an abundance of topics within this textbook. Including thermodynamics, wave optics, quantum mechanics, and fluid mechanics. The wide range of topics will make it useful for anyone looking to go into a science field. Though it seems more for people wanting to study the physics behind engineering. It might be a tedious read, but one should be able to gain a good amount of knowledge from the book. It will help one's understanding of physics within in its 1,334 pages."
