WHY WE LEARN PHYSICS?
Physics is one of the basis of natural science. It is in our every day life even though we are not always aware how often we apply the laws of physics and in which extent it determines our lives. Using the laws of physics we can find the answers to many questions such as:
What causes lightning?
Why the moon is lit at night?
Why an ice skater, when holding hands along the body, rotates at high speed?
Why basketball players jumps so high?
Why are the waves lapping at the shore?
How can a small computer solve complex problems?
How long it takes for the light of the stars to get to us?
Physicists can find answers to many questions, from where the universe begins to why baking soda mixed with water forms foaming effect. Physicsts are finding the answers to the things that surround us and the laws by which these things interact with each other.
Have you ever been to a rock concert? Physicists study the sound and the spread of sound waves, which helps those who work on the preparation of a rock concert.
Lasers and devices with radioactive elements are devices that are used to fight against cancer and diseases.
Geophysicists have progressed in developing methods of discovering places on Earth where an earthquake will happen. The work of physicists enabled the microchip in your digital clock, use of CD players and video games. Physics contributed to the development of techniques very much, so that the computer you use you can carry in your pocket!
