Physics is the the branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy. The subject matter of physics, distinguished from that of chemistry and biology, includes mechanics, heat, light and other radiation, sound, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms.

At Snow College, we believe that the study of physics is for the curious. If you want to know how the natural world works study physics. Physics is the foundation of all physical sciences. The laws of nature studied in physics underlie the other sciences including Chemistry, Geology, Astronomy, Meteorology, and even Biology. - See more at:
