Physics
(Greek: physis  – φύσις meaning "nature") is the natural sciencewhich examines  basic concepts such as energy,force, andspacetimeand all that derives from these, such asmass,charge,matter 
 and itsmotion.
 More broadly, it is the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how theworld anduniverse  behave.
Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusionof astronomy.
Over the last two millennia, physics had been considered synonymouswith  philosophy,chemistry, and certain branches of  mathematics and  biology,but during theScientific Revolutionin the 16th century, it emerged to become a unique modernscience in its own right.
However, in some subject areas such as in mathematical physicsand quantum chemistry, the boundaries of physics remain difficult to distinguish. Physics is both significant and influential, in part because advances in its understandinghave often translated into new technologies, but also because new ideas in physics oftenresonate with the other sciences, mathematics and philosophy. For example, advances inthe understanding of electromagnetismled directly to the development of new productswhich have dramatically transformed modern-day society (e.g., television, computers,and domestic appliances); advances inthermodynamicsled to the development of motorized transport; and advances inmechanicsinspired the development of thecalculus.
