What Is Physics?
You don't seem to fully understand what kind of science physics is. At school, you may have heard something about Newton and energy, but all the formulas and laws have bypassed you. Now it is difficult for you to imagine what electric current, gravity, and radio waves are. However, after our test, the world of physics has become a little closer to you! Send this quiz to your friends, let's see if they can do it better!
Since your school days, you remember something about Newton, energy, and gravity. This knowledge is enough for you to understand how the world works and by what laws it works. However, when it comes to more complex matters, you get lost. Knowledge can always be improved. For example, using our test! Send this quiz to your friends, let's see if they can do it better!
Do you happen to teach physics at school? You know all the formulas and laws so well that this science seems to you something simple and understandable. You can already help those who do not know what energy and gravity are. Let's promote science to the masses! Send this quiz to your friends, let's see if they can do it better!
