Physics is the science of matter, energy and forces, and how they affect each other. Mathematics is used to describe this influence. Physics is based on generalization - its theories must be universal. The most commonly used physical theories are based on a few empirical laws: Classical mechanics, based on Newton's laws of motion Thermodynamics, based on the main theorems of thermodynamics Electrodynamics, based on Maxwell's equations Quantum physics, based on the Schrödinger equation. Together, these theories describe how atoms are built, and how phenomena such as motion, time, sound, light and electricity work. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Physics.
