Science is exploring, experimenting and predicting from what we see around us.
The scientific method involves several interconnected steps: Systematic observations, controlled experiments, qualitative and quantitative reasoning, mathematical modelling, prediction and verification or falsification of theories.
The word Physics comes from a Greek word meaning nature. Its Sanskrit equivalent is Bhautiki that is used to refer to the study of the physical world.
We can broadly describe physics as a study of the basic laws of nature and their manifestation in different natural phenomena.
