Importance of Physics
Physics is most fundamental of all sciences and provides other branches of science, basic principles and fundamental laws. This overlapping of physics and other fields has given birth to new branches such as physical chemistry, biophysics, astrophysics, health physics etc. Physics also plays an important role in the development of technology and engineering.
Science and technology are a potent force for change in the outlook of mankind. The information media and fast means of communications have brought all parts of the world in close contact with one another. Events taking place in one part of the world are immediately reverberated round the globe.
We are living in the age of information technology. The computer networks are products of chips developed from the basic ideas of physics. The chips are made of silicon. Silicon can be obtained from sand. It is upto us whether we make a sandcastle or a computer out of it.
