Engineering Physics (Lectures in General Physics for Engineering Faculties) by Hasan Maridi

For Arabic version is at this link

These lectures were written for students of the faculties of engineering and science and it contains the most important physical concepts and their applications in science, engineering, and life and is supported by solved examples in most of the topics it presents. Written in English and written and prepared from multiple references.

These lectures and their copyright and use or the use of some parts are guaranteed to everyone without reference to me. I hope that our students in scientific faculties benefit from them.

The proposed plan to describe this course as follow:
