Big ideas simply explained introduction to the physics book big ideas simply explained introduction to the physics book you are listening to world reading club presented by hakeem alibocus alexander here on callin

Social podcasting presented for world reading club in association with unique equilibrium this edition’s reading focus comes to us from big idea simply explained the physics book and is the introduction to the physics book

We humans have a heightened sense of our surroundings we evolved this way to outmaneuver stronger and faster predators to achieve this we have had to predict the behavior of both the living and the inanimate world knowledge gained from our experiences was passed down through generations via an ever evolving system of language

And our cognitive prowess and ability to use tools took our species to the top of the food chain we spread out of africa from around 60,000 years ago extending our abilities to survive in inhospitable locations

Through sheer ingenuity our ancestors developed techniques to allow them to grow plentiful food for their families and settle into communities experimental methods early societies drew meaning from unrelated events

Saw patterns that did not exist and spun mythologies they also developed new tools and methods of working which required advanced knowledge of the inner workings of the world

Be it the seasons or the annual flooding of the nile in order to expand resources in some reasons in some regions there were periods of relative peace and abundance

In these civilized societies some people were free to wonder about our place in the universe first the greeks then the romans tried to make sense of the world through patterns they observed in nature

Phillies of mellitus socrates plato aristotle and others began to reject supernatural explanations and produce rational answers in the quest to create absolute knowledge

They began to experiment at the fall of the roman empire so many of these ideas were lost to the western world which fell into a dark age of religious wars

But they continued to flourish in the arab world and asia scholars there continued to ask questions and conduct experiments the language of mathematics was invented to document this newfound knowledge

Ibn al hayatam and ibn sa were just two of the arab scholars who kept the flame of scientific knowledge alive in the 10th and 11th centuries yet their discoveries

Particularly in the fields of optics and astronomy were ignored for centuries outside the islamic world a new age of ideas with global trade and exploration came the exchange of ideas

Merchants and mariners carried books stories and technological marvels from east to west ideas from this wealth of culture drew europe out of the dark ages and into a new age of enlightenment known as the renaissance

A revolution of our worldview began as ideas from ancient civilizations became updated or outmoded replaced by new ideas of our place in the universe a new generation of experimenters poked and prodded nature to extract her secrets

In poland and italy copernicus and galileo challenged ideas that had been considered sick sacrosanct for two millennia and they suffered harsh persecution as a result

Then in england in the 17th century isaac newton’s laws of motion established the basis of classical physics which was terrain supreme for more than two centuries

Understanding motion allowed us to build new tools machines able to harness energy in many forms to do work steam engines and water mills were two of the most important of these

They ushered in the industrial revolution 1760 to 1840 quote whosoever studies works of science must examine tests and explanations with the greatest precision

Ibn al hayatum quote repeating whosoever studies works of science must examine tests and explanations with the greatest precision ibn alhaythem the evolution of physics in the 19th century

The results of experiments were tried and tested numerous times by a new international network of scientists they shared their findings through papers explaining the patterns they observed in the language of mathematics

Others built models from which they attempted to explain these empirical equations of correlation models simplified the complexities of nature into digestible chunks easily described by simple geometries and relationships

These models made predictions about new behaviors in nature which were tested by a new wave of pioneering experimentalism if the predictions were proven true

The models were deemed laws which all of nature seemed to obey the relationship of heat and energy was explored by french physicist sadie carneau and others

Founding the new science of thermodynamics british physicist james clerk maxwell produced equations to describe the close relationship of electricity and magnetism electromagnetism

By 1900 it seemed that it seemed that there were laws to covid all the great phenomena of the physical world then in the first decade of the 20th century

A series of discoveries sent shockwaves through the scientific community challenging former truths and giving birth to modern physics a german max planck

Uncovered the world of quantum physics then fellow countryman albert einstein revealed his theory of relativity others discovered the structure of the atom and uncovered the role of even smaller subatomic particles

In doing so they launched the study of particle physics new discoveries weren’t confined to the microscope more advanced telescope telescopes opened up the study of the universe

Within a few generations humanity went from living at the center of the universe to residing on a speck of dust on the edge of one galaxy among billions

Not only had we seen inside the heart of matter and released the energy within we had charted the seas of space with light that had been traveling since soon after the big bang

Quote one cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity of life of the marvelous structure of reality albert einstein quote repeating one cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity

Of life of the marvelous structures of reality albert einstein physics has evolved over the years as a science branching out and breaching new horizons as discoveries are made

Arguably its main areas of concern now lie at the fringes of our physical world at scales both larger than life and smaller than atoms modern physics has found applications in many other fields

Including new technology chemistry biology and astronomy this book presents the biggest ideas in physics beginning with the everyday and ancient then moving through classical physics into the tiny atomic world and ending with the vast expanse of space

You’ve been listening to world reading club presented by hakeem alibocus alexander here on callin social podcasting presented for world reading club in association with uniquilibrium

This edition’s reading focus has come to us from big ideas simply explained the physics book and and is titled well it’s the introduction to the physics book

There’s a second part of the introduction coming up in the next edition which is titled measurement and motion physics and the everyday world stay tuned
