Tutor description

Waves > A type of disturbance produced by an oscillating or vibrating motion in which a point or body moves back and forth along a line about a fixed central point produces waves.Wave front > Line or plane on which the vibrations of every points are in phase and are at the same distance from the source of the wave.

1. Physics - Science that deals with the structure ofmatterand the interactions between the fundamental constituents of the observableuniverse.2. Classical physics is often described as the study of physics on the macroscopic level, meaning questions are generally investigated without the aid of highly technological equipment, such as electron microscopes. The inception of classical physics dates back to the late 1500s. Mechanics is the oldest subdivision of classical physics. The field is inspired by the work of Isaac Newton.The study of modern physics takes place at the sub-microscopic level. This division of physics investigates the behavior of very small particles, such as electrons and atoms. Modern physics developed in the early 1900s when physicists began to realize that the laws of classical physics did not always hold true for sub-microscopic particles. Notable advances in modern physics include Einstein's theories of relativity and Heisenberg's principle of indeterminacy. Because even the world's most advanced microscopes cannot make sub-microscopic particles visible, expensive tools and equipment, such as particle accelerators, are required to explore the world at this level.3. ClassicalMechanics - an area ofscienceconcerned with the behavior ofphysical bodieswhen subjected toforcesordisplacements, and the subsequent effects of the bodies on their environment.Thermodynamics - branch ofphysicsconcerned withheatandtemperature
