Physics is perhaps the most fundamental of the sciences. It involves the study of the nature of basic things such as motion, forces, energy, matter, heat, sound, light, and the atom. Engineering is the profession in which basic knowledge from mathematical and natural sciences is applied to develop new ways to utilize the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of society.
