Physicsand how it helps My Community
Physicsprovides people in my community with the necessary education, skills,and learning opportunities so that they equip themselves with thebasic concepts and ideas that are applicable in their daily lives.The ideas gained will enable them to do proper interaction with thenatural resources in the community in an efficient manner possible.This can help reduce the wastage of natural resources witnessed inthe society.
Itwill help the society realize that the relationship between man andmatter has resultant effects that can be subjected to natural laws.These effects are sometimes harmful to the community and at timesthey are advantageous. Physics will help understand the best ways toconserve the environment so that proper precautions can be taken toensure that the interaction between man and matter is beneficial tothe people in the community.
Physicswill as well help the community members to promote and make properuse of the technology that is in existence or the one to be invented(Park, 2004). This technology will ensure that the environment is ahabitable place to live in as it becomes safe or the negative effectsare minimized.
Thereare several disciplines within the community that we interact with ondaily basis. The most common are the earth and agriculture. Physicswill, therefore, enhance our understanding of such disciplines andhow they can be made useful to man. People will get a knowhow on howall these subjects relate to physics and how physics can beinfluential in the necessities that matter in human life.
Thestudy of physics is therefore widely applicable in the society, andthere is need for the community to understand how this discipline isuseful to their day to day lives.
