Newton's laws and their applications are widely discussed in the topic of physics

Physics, a tremendous, eye-opening, and forever-changing science, requires students to have a solid knowledge of mathematics, including algebra, chemistry, and biology. This subject is very useful in the real world, as this explains the world around us. A lot of formulas are used, including F=ma, to represent many of the Earth's simple mechanisms. Simple, child-like questions such as "How will I catch the ball?" and "How far should I push this punching bag?" are physics-related questions. You have been dealing with physics since you were born!

Famous physicists include Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, and Stephen Hawking.
