Chalk Talk: What Is Physics?
Physics is a science that revolves around such topics as matter, energy, force, motion, and acceleration. It is typically one of the three main sciences offered by high schools. Although physics is often not required in high school, advanced students may take the course during their junior year, and those who plan to attend college often take it during their senior year. A great deal of math is needed for physics; students need to solve many algebraic equations--several of which are highly complex. Many well-known scientist have made major contributions to physics and have had theories and units of measurements named after them. The Major Laws of Physics include Newton's Three Laws of Physics, the Law of Gravity, the Conservation of Mass and Energy, etc. Theories and laws include Netwon's Laws of Motion and Gravity, Quantum Physics, and Einstein's Theory of Relativity. Famous physicists not mentioned include Galileo, Bohr, and Hawking.
