Applications of Physics

Read about the various applications of physics in daily life, industrial processes, research and advanced technologies.

The applications are classified according the field of physics they are most closely related to.
  • Classical Mechanics - Probably the closest to our daily experiences, classical mechanics finds many applications in industry as well as research. Mechanical design and automation in industry, and simulation in research rely on principles of classical mechanics.

  • Electricity and Magnetism - Development in the knowledge of Electricity and Magnetism has revolutionalised the technological development in all fields of physics. The generator and motor designed using the phenomena of Electromagnetic Induction are widely used machines. Technology and industry today depends largely on power. Knowledge of magnetism has helped us build precise instruments and mechanical systems.

  • Thermodynamics

  • Optics

  • Nuclear Physics
