IMPORTANCE OF PHYSICS IN OUR DAILY LIFE - PART 1
1. Physics provides quantitative and
analytic skills needed for analyzing data and
solving problems in the sciences, engineering and medicine, as well as in
economics, finance, management, law and public policy.
2. Physics is the basis for most modern
technology, and for the tools and instruments used in
scientific, engineering and medical research and development. Manufacturing is
dominated by physics-based technology.
3. Find Out Why the World Works the Way It
you’re a naturally inquisitive person, then there’s a lot you can learn
from a physics degree.
can teach us so much about, well, everything. Whether you’d like to know why
the world moves, or want to understand the laws of the universe and
what makes everything tick – from planets and solar systems to black holes –
physics can explain why things occur the way they do and show us the
interaction between phenomena we wouldn’t have otherwise seen.
also an incredibly broad subject, meaning that you might learn about
topics as varied as particle physics, electricity and magnetism, classical
mechanics, modern physics, relativity, and thermodynamics, to name but a few.
4. Physics Improves Health
medical technology, positron emission tomography (PET) Lets neurologists see
how energy flows inside the brain to see where problems could be occurring.
5. Physics Connects the World
telecommunications industry, including the development of the internet, has
benefited from physics research in telecommunications from radio waves to fiber
6. It clears the concepts and
makes us able to understand the various disciplines such as earth, chemical,
agricultural, environmental, biological, and cosmology.
7. Physics plays a crucial role in the
infrastructure of technology and offers trained personnel
required to gain benefits of advancements in science.
