MEANING OF PHYSICS

Physics is the scientific study of matter and energy and how they interact with each other. The interests and concerns of physicists have always formed the basis of future technology.

Physics has the capability of playing a major role in finding solutions to many of the problems facing the human race. In a broader sense, physics can be seen as the most fundamental of the natural sciences.

IMPORTANCE OF PHYSICS

Physics being the bedrock of technology has in no way been the foundation of global technological advancement. Physics contributes to the technological infrastructure and provides trained personnel needed to take advantage of scientific advances and discoveries.

Physics is important to man’s life because it is used in

  • Cooking food
  • Cleaning clothes
  • Watching TV
  • Heating your house
  • Playing sports

Everything else in your life

  • Physics plays an important role in health
  • Economic development
  • Education
  • Energy and
  • The environment

 

SCHOLARS ACHIEVEMENT IN THE FIELD OF PHYSICS

  1. William Gilbert (1544-1603) – An English physicist who hypothesized that the Earth is a giant magnet.
  2. Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) – An Italian physicist. He performed fundamental observations, experiments, and mathematical analyses in astronomy and physics
  3. Willebrod Snell (1580-1626) – A Dutch physicist who discovered law of refraction (Snell’s law)
  4. Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) – A French physicist who discovered that pressure applied to an enclosed fluid is transmitted undiminished to every part of the fluid and to the walls of its container (Pascal’s principle)
  5. Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) – A Dutch physicist. He proposed a simple geometrical wave theory of light, now known as “Huygen’s principle”
  6. Robert Hooke (1635-1703) – An English who discovered Hooke’s law of elasticity
  7. Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) – An English physicist who developed theories of gravitation and mechanics, and invented differential calculus
  8. Daniel Bernoulli (1700-1782) – A Swiss physicist. He developed the fundamental relationship of fluid flow now known as Bernoulli’s principle
  9. Benjamin Franklin(1706-1790) – An American. He was the first American physicist; characterized two kinds of electric charge, which he named “positive” and “negative”
  10. Charles Augustin de Coulomb (1736-1806) – A French physicist who performed experiments on elasticity, electricity, and magnetism; established experimentally nature of the force between two charges
  11. André Marie Ampère (1775-1836) РA French physicist and father of electrodynamics
  12. Georg Ohm (1789-1854) – A physicist from Germany. He discovered that current flow is proportional to potential difference and inversely proportional to resistance (Ohm’s law)
  13. Michael Faraday 1791-1867) – An English physicist who discovered electromagnetic induction and devised first electrical transformer
  14. Lord Kelvin (1824-1907) – A British physicist who proposed absolute temperature scale, of essence to development of thermodynamics

MEASUREMENT OF MASS, WEIGHT, LENGTH & TIME

  • Meaning of Measurement
  • Measurement of Mass
  • Measurement of Weight
  • Measurement of Length
  • Measurement of Time

MEANING OF MEASUREMENT

Measurement is the process of observing and recording the observations that are collected as part of a research effort. To get the exact measurement of an object we make use of tools used in the field of science, especially in physics called measuring instrument. Examples of such instrument are chemical balance, spring balance, meter rule, caliper, micrometer screw guage, clock, thermometer etc.

 

MEASUREMENT OF MASS

Mass is the quantity of matter contained in a body. The instrument used in measuring mass is chemical/beam balance. It is a scalar quantity & measured in kilogram (kg). Mass is a fundamental quantity & is constant from place to place.

 

MEASUREMENT OF WEIGHT

Weight is the earth pull on a body or the downward force produced when a mass is in a gravitational field. The instrument used in measuring weight is spring balance. It is a vector quantity & measured in newton (N). Weight is a derived quantity & varies from place to place.

Relationship Between mass & weight¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬

W=mg

Where: W=weight (N); m=mass (kg) & g=acceleration due to gravity (m/s2)

MEASUREMENT OF LENGTH

Length is simply distance extended. It is a fundamental quantity & measured in meters (m).

Length can be measured using tape rule, meter rule, caliper, vernier caliper and micrometer screw guage

MEASUREMENT OF TIME

Time can be defined as the interval between events. It is a fundamental quantity & measured in seconds(s).Time can be measured using stop watch/clock

FUNDAMENTAL & DERIVED QUANTITY

Fundamental quantities are the basic quantities that are independent of others. They are length (m), mass (kg) and Time (s), electric current (A), temperature (k), amount of substance (moles) and luminous intensity (candela).

Derived quantities are those obtained by simple combination of basic quantities e.g. Area, Volume, Density, Velocity, Acceleration, Force, energy, work, power, momentum, pressure, electric charge, electric potential etc.
