Physics is all around us. It is present in the minute world of the atom and in the vast universe. There is physics in our everyday life. From the moment we arise to the time we go to sleep, our activities involve physics. When we cook our food, iron our clothes, wash the dishes, listen to the radio, or answer a telephone call, we make use of the principles of physics. There is physics in moving objects, running automobiles and trains, flying kites and airplanes, zooming jet planes, and orbiting satellites. Physics is applied in the construction of roads, bridges, houses, buildings, boats, and ships. Knowing the principles of physics enables us to comprehend, appreciate, and interact better with our environment. The occurrence of lightning and thunder or a rainbow in the sky can be explained by the principles and laws of physics. We can understand why rain falls, why there is night and day, and why there is low tide and high tide. Physics makes our lives more comfortable and enjoyable. The modern facilities in our homes such as refrigerators, washing machines, and floor polishers make our work easier. Modern means of transportation, systems of communication, and advancement in medicine, agriculture, and industry are brought about by the application of the principles of physics.
