What Physics Is

[edit | edit source]

The dictionary defines physics as "the branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy. The subject matter of physics, distinguished from that of chemistry and biology, includes mechanics, heat, light and other radiation, sound, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms."

Physics is the study of the world we live in.
