Physics is all around us. To understand physics is to understand our universe. Physics looks at the big picture, and aims to describe and explain it through understanding the smaller pieces of the puzzle.
In school, we may think of physics as just another math class, incredibly challenging, with no application to real life. However, the truth is that physics is perhaps the most basic of all sciences. If you can understand algebra, geometry, and basic trigonometry (not calculus-based), you can challenge physics.
A basic understanding of the physical principles of this universe (learned in physics) can be applied to all of our subsequent scientific learning.
The same principles and laws that govern the forces between the atoms in our body also apply to the stars and planets in the universe. I would like to understand these basic principles.
