What is Physics?

Physics is a term originating from the Greek “ physis ” which means “ nature ”. It is the science that studies the laws that govern natural phenomena susceptible to being examined by observation and experimentation, seeking to fit them into logical schemes.

Some of the best known physicists in history are Galileo Galilei, Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein.

Physics is a fundamental science that develops on the basis of theories and experiments. The main theories of physics are: classical mechanics (description of the motion of objects), quantum mechanics (determination of measurements of quantities), relativity (space-time relationships and gravity) and electromagnetism (study of electricity and magnetism).

Classical Physics encompasses all theories and knowledge developed until the end of the 19th century, covering the principles of classical mechanics, wave mechanics, thermodynamics and electromagnetism.

Modern Physics encompasses theories and concepts from the 20th century onwards, with emphasis on quantum mechanics, relativity and experimental physics (investigation of physical phenomena using experimental processes).

The areas in which Physics is divided are: Acoustics (study of sound); Electricity (studies electricity); Mechanics (study of movement); Nuclear (studies nuclei and nuclear matter); Optics (study of light).
