A physicist is a person who studies physics. This word can be used in relation to a scientist or teacher (s), student (s), etc.
Physicists are divided into theorists and experimenters. According to the way of thinking, theoretical physicists occupy an intermediate place between experimental physicists and mathematicians. Sometimes some theoretical and physical schools are intertwined with mathematical ones, so it becomes difficult to say about their representatives who they are - physicists or mathematicians.
Awards and prizes
The highest award for physicists is the Nobel Prize, which has been awarded since 1901. The first Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen in 1901 for the discovery of the X-ray, which was discovered by Professor Ivan Pulyuy 14 years before the publication of WK Roentgen.
