Welcome to my site!

Physics has a reputation of being a difficult subject; it is, after all, rocket science. But like any new subject, the key to success is practice, practice, practice. You wouldn’t expect to be able to play the piano after a lecture on music, would you? And you won’t be able to use physics concepts after one class. You need to rehearse using the formulas and other tools until you are able to use them effortlessly. 

  What is Physics?

Physics is an attempt to explain how the universe works using laws, theories and more than a few pretty good ideas from some guys named Galileo, Newton and Einstein. These laws govern the motion of the smallest atom to the largest galaxy.


You can watch a baseball game without any idea of what the rules are. But knowing the rules makes baseball a lot more interesting. And you can live in the world without knowing how it works, but it's more fun when you understand the rules.
