Physics

About Us

Physics is the study of the physical environment and the laws governing the behavior of particles, fields, and space/time. More specifically, physicists study mechanics, heat, light, electric and magnetic fields, gravitation, relativity, atomic and nuclear physics, solid state physics and many other topics. In general, physics strives for a mathematical description of the laws of nature at the most fundamental level and is, therefore, the most mathematical of the basic sciences.
