Physics is the branch of natural science that deals with the study of matter, nature and properties of matter and energy. The word ‘physics’ is derived from Greek word ‘knowledge of nature’.
Physics classroom: Mechanics, heat, light, sound, radiation, electricity magnetism and structure of atoms are some of the disciplines of physics.

From one of the world’s leading data scientists, a landmark tour of the new science of idea flow, offering revolutionary insights into the mysteries of collective intelligence and social influence If the Big Data revolution has a presiding genius, it is MIT’s Alex “Sandy” Pentland. Over years of groundbreaking experiments, he has distilled remarkable discoveries significant enough to become the bedrock of a whole new scientific field: social physics. Humans have more in common with bees than we like to admit: We’re social creatures first and foremost.
This third editions of Key Science: Physics has been revised to meet the requirements of all 2001 GCSE specifications. It is suitable for middle-ability students, but has material for higher achievers, including in-depth content for all Separate Science specifications. Topics are differentiated between core material for Double/Single science and extension material for the Separate sciences.
Physics and Chemistry of Clouds
Clouds affect our daily weather and play key roles in the global climate. Through their ability to precipitate, clouds provide virtually all of the fresh water on Earth and are a crucial link in the hydrologic cycle. With ever-increasing importance being placed on quantifiable predictions – from forecasting the local weather to anticipating climate change – we must understand how clouds operate in the real atmosphere, where interactions with natural and anthropogenic pollutants are common.
Great Experiments in Physics
Starting with Galileo’s experiments with motion, this study of 25 crucial discoveries includes Newton’s laws of motion, Chadwick’s study of the neutron, Hertz on electromagnetic waves, and more. Includes Isaac Newton’s The Laws of Motion, Henry Cavendish’s “The Law of Gravitation,” Heinrich Hertz’s “Electromagnetic Waves,” Niels Bohr’s “The Hydrogen Atom,” and more.
The Physics of Aristotle is one of the foundational books of Western science and philosophy. As Martin Heidegger once wrote.The Physics is a lecture in which he seeks to determine beings that arise on their own, with regard to their being. Aristotelian “physics” is different from what we mean today by this word, not only to the extent that it belongs to antiquity whereas the modern physical sciences belong to modernity.
