31 Jan The science of physics in everyday life
Physics is a branch of science and one that is often seen to be a nerdy one or rather dull. However, if you look around, there is physics and its application happening everywhere. The science behind many things like, why lightning strikes, how a boomerang comes back to your hand, why waves crash to the beach, how much time it takes for the light of a star to be seen by us and more are all questions of physics in science. When studying any branch of science, it is important to ask questions. Physics has many applications as a branch of science in numerous activities in our daily life.
If you have been to a concert and could still hear the music loud and clear at the very back of the auditorium, it is because of physics at work. The science of acoustics and amplification of sound is being used to allow you to hear the music just as loud and clear at the very back. Measuring the depth of the sea, the science behind LASER shows, how a sonic boom occurs, why we hear the sound of thunder after lightning is seen are all based on principles of science or more specifically physics.
Whether you are at your workplace or in your school, a Ball Point pen is your weapon. Had physics not been there, you would not have been able to write with a Ball Point Pen on a paper. In this case, the concept of gravity comes into play. As the pen moves across the paper, the ball turns and gravity forces the ink down onto the top of the ball where it is transferred onto the paper.
Cellphones have become like Oxygen gas in modern social life. Hardly, anyone would have been untouched by the effects of a cell phone. Whether conveying an urgent message or doing incessant gossip, cellphones are everywhere. But how does a cell phone work? It works on the principle of electricity and the electromagnetic spectrum, undulating patterns of electricity and magnetism.
Whether in cellphones, cars, torches, toys, or any other appliances, batteries act as saviors of electricity. Batteries work on the principle of capacitance. Capacitors are used to store electrical energy. And here also Physics is involved.
Physics is connected with our lives in more ways than you can even think of. If not learned and understood properly it can sound pretty daunting but with proper guidance, Physics can feel like a fresh breeze of air.
