Purpose of Physics[edit | edit source]

The aim of the study of physics is to understand the natural world, in its broadest and most fundamental sense. By understanding it, we hope to be able to explain and predict (typically through the mathematics that are developed) and ultimately modify (oftentimes through resulting technology) events that occur. Physics deals with everything that happens in this Universe, tries to understand it and provides the root cause for the same in a logical manner.
