What is Physics?
Physics is… Physics is the scientific study of matter and energy and how they interact with each other. This energy can take the form of motion, light, electricity, radiation, gravity... just about anything!
Matter is… Objects that take up space and have mass. Mass is… How much there is of an object. Mass is related to how much something weighs. They are not the same!
Forces and Motion Motion is one of the key topics in physics. Everything in the universe moves. It might only be a small amount of movement and very very slow, but movement does happen. Don't forget that even if you appear to be standing still, the Earth is moving around the Sun, and the Sun is moving around our galaxy. The movement never stops.
What will we be studying? Position Speed Acceleration Velocity Newton’s laws of motion Momentum Simple machines Gravity Friction Pressure Bouyancy Work Energy Power
Now for a real life example of physics- forces and motion…
