**COURSE OBJECTIVES:**

The
Objective of this course is to make students learn and understand basic
concepts and principles of physics to analyze practical engineering problems
and apply its solutions effectively and meaningfully. To understand building up
of models, design issues, practical oriented skills and problem solving
challenges are the great task of the course. To know about shock waves and
practical applications is the prime motto to introduce new technology at the
initial stage of Engineering.
