Why learn Physics?

Physics is the fundamental science of everything. It is used to understand the world around us and even inside our bodies. By understanding physics you are able to learn about mechanics, sound, light, electricity, heat, and atomic structures. It is important to understand the principles of physics and how to apply the methods and techniques to a variety of problems. Studying physics does not merely help you solve problems just for physics. A good understanding of principles in physics will help you to analyze problems, reason logically, and to discriminate between important and irrelevant concepts.

My background is in engineering with an emphasis in physics. I have a passion for learning and teaching those that enjoy learning as much as I do. I am a jack of many trades and want to try to make the complex topics much easier to understand by focusing on the essential concepts. Many engineers might know this as the KISS Principle. So my goal is to avoid any unnecessary complexity in trying to convey essential topics to you. Learning from my mistakes and gaining the tricks that I have learned along the way will give you a great foundation and help you take that next step.
