Newnes Engineering Science Pocket Book by J. O. Bird (Auth.)

By J. O. Bird (Auth.)

Newnes Engineering technology notebook is a uniquely flexible and useful device for a variety of engineers and scholars. all of the basics of electric and mechanical engineering technology and physics are lined, with an emphasis on concise descriptions, key equipment, transparent diagrams, formulae and the way to exploit them. John Bird's shows of this center fabric places the entire solutions at your fingertips.

The contents of this e-book were conscientiously matched to the newest extra and better schooling syllabuses in order that it could possibly even be used as a revision advisor or a quick-access resource of underpinning wisdom. scholars on competence-based classes reminiscent of NVQs will locate this technique fairly fresh and practical.

This publication and its significant other identify, Newnes Engineering arithmetic notebook, give you the underpinning wisdom for the total variety of engineering groups catered for by way of the Newnes notebook sequence. those similar titles include:
Newnes Mechanical Engineer's notebook (Timings)
Newnes electric notebook (Reeves)
Newnes digital Engineer's notebook (Carr & Brindley)
