Physics is the science of the natural world in the broadest sense, dealing with the fundamental constituents of the universe, the forces they exert on one another, and the results produced by these forces. Physicists study a wide range of physical phenomena spanning all length scales: from the sub-atomic particles from which all ordinary matter is made (particle physics) to the behavior of the material Universe as a whole (cosmology).
