Physics IN OUR DAILY LIVES
“Any sort of technology which we uses IN our daily life is related to Physics.” Physics is the science of matter and its motion, space-time and energy. Physics describes many forms of energy - such as kinetic energy, electrical energy, and mass; and the way energy can change from one form to another. Everything surrounding to us is made of matter and Physics explains matter as combinations of fundamental particles which are interacting through fundamental forces. It will not be an exaggeration if it is said that Nature is almost Physics (apart from the fact that the word Physics itself is derived from Greek "physis" meaning nature).

Physics is all around us. We can find Physics as the backbone for any daily life example such as an electric light, electricity, the working of our vehicle, wristwatch, cell phone, CD player, radio, plasma TV set, computer, and - the list goes on.

As we all know physics is the study of natural phenomena. Any sort of technology which we uses in our daily life is related to physics; You can see the examples given below

1)television uses electromagnets to direct electrons on a screen to produce pictures.

2)A cell phone uses microwaves.

3)Your car is built on mechanical principles.

4)A refrigerator uses thermodynamic principles.

5)Most modern homes use electricity to power appliances.

Physics is also a necessity in solving our future problems.
The examples cited above show that forward-looking developments are based on the insights of physics. This applies most especially to all problems, or rather solutions thereof, which are critical for our future. Whether it pertains to new materials, the development of fuel cells for a more environmentally-friendly propulsion techniques, or nuclear fusion as a source of energy in the future, in any event, physics creates the conditions for solving problems.
