An Introduction to Physics – Start Here

We can describe Physics as

“the natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion and behaviour through space and time, along with related concepts such as energy and force”

Physics helps us to generate theories about how the world began, how it will end, and why everything that happens in between happens the way it does. By understanding the laws of Physics we can make predictions of what will happen in the future based on past events, and we can postulate about what may be happening out in the deepest depths of space despite us not being able to observe it.

Physics is everywhere. When we drive a car the laws of physics are at work in regards to the forces of motion that cause a car to accelerate, decelerate and stop. Physics helps us to yield energy to power the world in which we live via an understanding of nuclear particles and their behaviours. And Physics allows us to make significant contributions to new technologies that arise from theoretical breakthroughs.

Without Physics we would not have television or computers, we could not fly to other countries on an aeroplane, and we could not use much of the sophisticated equipment in medicine such as x-rays. Physics has played a gigantic part in the evolution of humans on earth and it continues to do so right up to this present day.

This site is aimed at providing a space on the web to cleanly break down some of the general concepts of Physics into sizeable chunks that are easy to digest and understand alone, or that will build up your fundamental concept of physics if digested collectively. Please feel free to dip in and out as you wish, and I am aiming to build and add to the content within this site periodically.

Why not jump in now and get started with a basic understanding of Forces.
