Transcript of What is Physics?

What is Physics? There are many definitions, but essentially they all describe it as the scientific study of matter, energy, space, and time, and of the relations between them. Everything from matter and energy on the largest scale Soooooo, what does that include? down to the smallest quantum mechanics and many other areas
including relativity, astrophysics optics / light physics, acoustics, the study of sound and sound waves, and includes the fields of medical or biophysics, geophysics electricty and magnetism, thermodynamics, high energy physics electronics cosmology nanotechnology particle physics chemical physics Fluid Mechanics The Hubble Deep Field This set of images was taken by focusing the Hubble on the same random piece of sky for over 140 hours. This field of view contains over 3000 galaxies each with about 100 billion stars (give or take).
This piece of sky occupies the same field of view as a tennis ball seen from 100 yards away. Other observations seem to confirm that this is what space looks like in every direction. As we explore physics together, lets be curious, show respect for each other and have a sense of humor. If we do that, we'll learn a lot and have a lot of fun. Thanks, Mr. H and Mrs. T. BVHS
