Physics (from the Greek, (phúsis), “nature” and (phusiké), “knowledge of nature”) is the science concerned with the discovery and understanding of the fundamental laws which govern matter and energy. That is, physics deals with the elementary constituents of the Universe and their interactions, as well as the analysis of systems which are best understood in terms of these fundamental principles.
