Physics takes place in every aspect of our lives. From the time we get out of bed until the time we get back into our bed. Physics influences are far beyond the classroom. If you've ever wondered what makes lightning, why baseball pitchers throw so fast, how track stars can run so fast, how Lebron James can jump so high. Why some people are stronger than others, how that tiny computer can do complicated problems, or how long it takes light from the sun to reach us. All of these questions are studied by physicists every day. Physics is more than an abstract area of research; it is a lens for us to view the everyday world. Physics influence every single thing a person does. It may be someone walking, lifting, stretching, driving a car, or even getting out of bed. Just about everything you do from moving to eating to listening to music involves physics. Now that I have really explored them I think it is hard to go about our day and not do something that involves physics. Physics is everywhere you look and there is no way of getting away from it. The average person may think that he does not use physics in everything he does because most people would say they do not think about how physics influences there daily lives. However, I have realized how important physics is and will be explaining how it affects me throughout my daily activities. Physics is not something that only scientists think about because physics coincides with our everyday life. The average person is not a physicist yet they still use physics every day. Physics consist of energy, kinetic energy, potential energy, velocity, acceleration, mass, force, and gravity. Energy gives you the ability to do work. You need to go to bed early so you will have energy in the morning to go to work. Right off the bat your body is influenced by physics, the way your body is able to repair it and be ready for another day is based off physics.
