Science for Motor Vehicle Engineers

The primary aim of this book is to provide the necessary scientific principles for NVQ students specialising in motor vehicle engineering at levels 2 and 3. Unlike many other engineering science texts, it emphasises the topics most useful to vehicle engineers, and includes numerous real-life examples, with questions directly related to cars, motor cycles and commercial vehicles.

Audience
Students taking NVQ level 3 in motor vehicle engineering. Also those taking a GNVQ advanced course in engineering.
