observable phenomena Eg Newton39s Law Theories mathematical explanations of phenomena Scientific Method How research is carried out and documented 1 Introduction 2 Data collection techniques or mathematical assumptions equations 3 Results 4 Analysis of results what they mean 5 Conclusions and future directions BibliographyReferences Review questions and answers What is physics Physics is an endeavor to determine the character of human nature We study physics to manipulate nature and satisfy curiosity What are models in the context of physics A model is used for situations when it is known that the hypothesis has a limitation on its validity The Bohr model of the atom for example Laws Relationships between observable phenomena Theories Mathematical explanations of phenomena What

stars What is its diameter 100000 light years What is the Local Group The Local Group is the galaxy group that includes the Milky Way What is the Virgo Supercluster The Virgo Supercluster Virgo SC or the Local Supercluster LSC or L5 is a mass concentration of galaxies that contains the Virgo Cluster in addition to the Local Group which in turn contains the Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxies What is the Cosmological Principle Cosmological principle is the notion that the distribution of matter in the universe is homogeneous and isotropic when viewed on a large enough scale How old is the Universe 138 billion years How is the Universe changing with time The universe is rapidly increasing with time What are the consequences of this change The Moon is moving away from Earth and Temperature of sun is decreasing slowly The Atomic Scale Every material is made up of baryonic matter which are baryons protons and neutrons arranged in the nuclei of atoms Proton and neutron are made up of up and down quarks Quarks are point particles They have both electric and color charge There are four forces in nature which are Gravity Electromagnetism the weak force and the strong force Gravity is only attractive and acts between objects having mass Electromagnetism can be both attractive and repulsive and acts between objects having electric charge The weak force acts in the nucleus between charge and color It is reSponsible for certain forms of radioactive decay The strong force acts in the nucleus between objects with color It is reSponsible for holding together quarks and baryons in an atomic nucleus Bosons are carrier particles They are gravitons photons W and Z and gluons Review questions and answers What are baryons a subatomic particle that has a mass equal to or greater than that of a proton What are they made of quarks What are the most elementary particles that make up our world quarks How many quarks and what kinds make up a proton two 39Up39 quarks and one 39Down39 A neutron one 39Up quark and two 39Down39 quarks What is color as applied to quarks Colors represent the charge of quarks and antiquarks Quarks could be any color but antiquarks will be a negative color
