Physics is applying scientific methodologies in order to grasp the fundamental principles of nature which is energy and matter and to how they are interacting to each other. Physicists are usually specializing in one area of physics only though there are many disciplines that are overlapping to each.
Other Branches of Science
Cosmology and astrophysics are good examples of sciences that are charged with unending mysteries as they are playing out on massive scale.
From supernovas to black holes, it’s the responsibility of scientists working in this branch of science to find explanation to the birth of stars, beginning of universe and tumble of galaxies.
With geophysics, it is dealing with the understanding of earth from standpoints of seismic, electromagnetic and radioactive phenomena. Geology, atmospheric science, oceanography and plate tectonics are only few of the health sciences that do fall under purview of this field. With this branch of physics, scientists were able to have thorough understanding of events similar to:
- Volcanic eruptions
- Formation of mountains
- Continental drift and;
Nuclear and Atomic Physics
Together with the other disciplines they have, nuclear and atomic physics are undertaking among the most basic areas of nature, which is the understanding of atom. Radioactivity, nuclear power, pacemakers, medical imaging systems and atomic clock are only few of the benefits that came from these branches.
