Physics is also called “the fundamental science” because the subject of study of all branches of natural science like chemistry, astronomy, geology, and biology are constrained by laws of physics, similar to how chemistry is often called the central science because of its role in linking the physical sciences
Physics is a science. Science works according to the scientific method. The scientific method accepts only reason, logic, and experimental evidence to tell between what is scientifically correct and what is not. Scientists do not simply believe – they test, and keep testing until satisfied. Just because some “big scientist” says something is right, that thing does not become a fact of science. Unless a discovery is repeatedly established in different laboratories at different times by different people, or the same theoretical result is derived by clear use of established rules, we do not accept it as a scientific discovery. The real strength of science lies in the fact that it continually keeps challenging itself. 2. It is thought that the laws of physics do not change from place to place. This is why experiments carried out in different countries by different scientists – of any religion or race – have always led to the same results if the experiments have been done honestly and correctly. We also think that the laws of physics today are the same as they were in the past. Evidence, contained in the light that left distant stars billions of years ago, strongly indicates that the laws operating at that time were no different than those today. The spectra of different elements then and now are impossible to tell apart, even though physicists have looked very carefully.
