Introduction to Physics in Daily life

Physics is  a science based on experimental, observative and quantitative measurement. It is the study of nature and the laws governing the nature and how energy and matter are related to each other.

Physics in Daily Life Examples

Physics forms an inevitable part of all branches of life. It has numerous applications in all fields of life. If we consider our daily life, whatever we do can be directly or indirectly connected to one or the other principle of Physics. Our walking, our eating. our talking all involves Physics. Physics is the backbone of many daily life example like electricity, computer, wrist watch, Car, refrigerator and so on.Understanding Definition of Gravitational Potential Energy is always challenging for me but thanks to all math help websites to help me out.

some of the very few  examples from our daily life which illustrates the principles of Physics are

i. We walk, walk fast, run, jog, jump into a bus etc. All these or any type of motion is associated with Newton's law of motion.

ii. When we talk, our vocal cords vibrate producing sound.

iii. When we eat food, the chemical energy of the food is being converted into mechanical energy which we use to do different types of work.

iv. The electricity is our house is a gift of Physics. Hydroelectric project is the method in which water is used to generate electricity.  The mechanical energy of the water is converted into electrical energy using dynamo.

Physics in Daily Life, Examples Continued

v. refrigerator works on the principles of thermodynamics

vi. Pressure cookers, washing machines, music system, computers all work on the principle of Physics.

vii. Automobiles, trains, aircraft all work on the concepts of Physics.

viii. While you are reading this article the working of your eye is similar to the working of a camera which again belongs to Physics.

ix. Mobile phones working on microwaves also uses Physics to connect people from different parts of the world.

x. Writing using Pen, writing on whiteboard using marker all are the sole properties of Physics.

xi. Rain, snowfall, lightening, thunder, wind, sea breeze etc all owe their existence to the laws of Physics

As mentioned in the beginning, the above list is endless. Any phenomenon of our daily life you consider, we an surely bring Physics in it.
