What is the relationship between physics and technology?
Dr. Badi M
Experienced Academic and dedicated tutor for all levels.
Briefly Technology is primarily based on Engineering which has its basis on Physics and Maths. So physics is the basic science of understanding natural phenomena and technology is the application of such ideas to solve everyday problems.
Joseph John Fernandez
I love maths and physics, but I love helping people understand them even more!
Physics explains and describes natural phenomena. It tells us how different parts of nature work and react to different situations. Technology helps us solve problems and complete tasks by using the world around us. To do this it is neccesary to understand nature, so that we know if, and to what extent, things are possible. A simple example is solving the need to lift heavy objects using a lever: physics tells us that the longer the lever arm, the easier it is to lift the object. Therefore, we may construct larger levers.
