Transcript of Why Study Physics?
“I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people.” Sir Isaac Newton Why Study Physics? If you have a passion for understanding how things work and enjoy scientific experiments and mathematics, then you should study physics. “If I have ever made any valuable discoveries, it has been due more to patient attention, than to any other talent” Sir Isaac Newton Physics is crucial to understanding the world around us, the world inside us, and the world beyond us. Physics encompasses the study of the universe from the largest galaxies to the smallest subatomic particles. Cell phones, the Internet, and MRIs are only a few examples of the physics-based technological developments that have revolutionized our world. It is the most basic and fundamental science. Physics also undergirds many new technologies. Physics challenges our imaginations with concepts like relativity and string theory, and it leads to great discoveries... Physicists are among the worlds best problem solvers and critical thinkers, skills that are essential for success in many fields. like computers and lasers, that change our lives. A physics education will prepare you for great jobs in a wide variety of careers.Full transcript
