Physics is nothing less than the empirical, mathematical, and philosophical basis for all natural science and engineering.

It’s about solving real-world problems and explaining how everything in the universe works. The physicist’s technique of translating a concrete situation into abstract terms that can be solved using mathematical tools is a skill of much value in all fields of scientific research and engineering – and in management, business, industry, and more.
