About Physics

  • American Physical Society (APS) Why Study Physics? - Physics is crucial to understanding the world around us, the world inside us, and the world beyond us. It is the most basic and fundamental science
  • open.michigan, What is Physics? - A framework for describing the structure and function of the natural world; 22 slides
  • OpenStax CNX, What is physics? - physics is defined as that branch of science which studies natural phenomena in terms of basic laws and physical quantities; the knowledge in OpenStax CNX can be shared and built upon by all because it is reusable
  •, What is physics? - physics is about asking fundamental questions and trying to answer them by observing and experimenting
