Not something you really hear every day. It’s not something you really want to hear either, right? Why is it that when we hear the word physics, it’s just a major turnoff. People may even hear the word and just think “get me out of here”, even though they may not have the slightest clue of what it’s about. Some people do have a slight clue and think molecules or gravity, atoms or Bohr, laws or life, and still may not quite grasp it, but at least have a slight clue. Others, think wasted time and irrelevance, how it kicked their a** in both high school and college. Then the people who really can’t comprehend, think goofy white people. To all of this you could say that people tend to dislike what they cannot understand. Physics. The branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy. Physics, is what you will be informed of today.
As we’ve already stated in the definition, physics is the natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion through space and time. So first off, matter, the building block of the universe, is any substance which has mass and occupies space. All physical objects are composed of matter, in the form of atoms. Atoms are in turn made up of neutrons, protons, and electrons. Matter also exists in four states: solid, liquid and gas, and plasma; though there are more yet to be proven possible states. Also, all matter is capable of being converted to energy. You might have heard of E = mc2, that would be…
