Physics the Fundamental Science

Physics is in everything we do. There is no way to escape it. From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep we are afloat in physics. The opposite of that is also true; from the moment we go to sleep to the moment we wake up. The question is why there is such a large disconnect in our society to a greater degree to engage or at least try to understand this fundamental science that explores the very fiber of reality?

Physics is in everything we do. There is no way to escape it. From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep we are afloat in physics. The opposite of that is also true; from the moment we go to sleep to the moment we wake up.  When we dress, we look ourselves in a mirror to see how good or how bad we look, we are in the process of using the physics of optics. For many of us, we have to set up an alarm clock to wake us up. We are in the process of time tracking. In this digital age, we use our electronic devices to navigate our paths in unfamiliar places; we are basically in the process of navigating geometric space.  These electronic devices are connected via the invisible electromagnetic threads to low orbiting satellites (LBS) above our head. The biological system follows the laws of physics for instance the blood that flows to our veins and arteries. From an architectural stand point, the truss that we use in our construction, bridges.  The truss is usually fabricated of several triangular units that can be either wood, metal connecting by joints or nodes. This structure can span to great distances. It is so because a triangular structure cannot be deformed unless there is a change in length in a side.  In addition, tensile force is a force that tends to elongate a beam; a compressive force is a force that tends to shorten a beam.  Therefore, the sum of all forces at each node is equal to zero because the nodes of a truss are static.  Here is an impartial list of great physics discoveries. Bear in mind that the fundamental understanding of physics allows scientists to make better predictions about things in the universe.
