Your Physics Questions Answered

 Question

How would you define Physics in your own words?
At its most basic level, physics is the study of how forces initiate changes in the world around us. When we first learn it, we start with Newtonian mechanics which apply to objects that humans routinely interact with--like stuff that is the size of cars, pulleys, tennis balls, light bulbs,... read more

 Question

How would you define Physics in your own words?
Physics comes down to understanding and considering all the forces and effects that are 'acting on a system'; we can say that better though. Success in classroom physics is about getting familiar with the common situations used to describe specific things (friction, normal force, velocity,... read more

 Question

How would you define Physics in your own words?
"All science is either physics or stamp collecting."— Lord Rutherford, physicist. It follows that physics is the study of the parts of science that are not stamp collecting (he meant taxonomy). At this point I should say something about how physics is about quantifying the behavior of matter and... read more
