Physics topics

  • Relativity (special and general)
  • Quantum mechanics and field theory
  • Newtonian mechanics (gyroscopes, waves – include impedence matching stuff, fluids/flight)
  • Thermodynamics
  • Electromagnetism
  • Optics
  • Nuclear, and the particle zoo
  • Electronics (passives, relays to op amps and computers, meter/motor/generator, radio)

Physics is the reductionist science. A systematic evidence-based pursuit of knowledge, by the approach of deducing complex system behaviour from the dynamics of simpler individual components, and with emphasis on mathematics rather than cataloguing.
