Great scheme and syllubus.. But we missed...

ReplyDeleteThanks for your helpful post. I think that this post is acceptable for all users

Deletewater treatment equipments

really helpfullfor us .. but syllubus is old

ReplyDeleteFor Module 3 of engineering mechanics , which derivatiins are not required...?

ReplyDeleteIs derivations for the centroid and mi of different geometry required?

Bhai ithu padichaa Pass aavo? ��

ReplyDeleteis there a need to study derivations

ReplyDeleteGood
