Physics is the science of how nature works at the most fundamental level, from the smallest blocks of matter and the fundamental forces, to the largest structures in the universe. Physics uses mathematics to describe experimental results, which in turn confirm or refute the theories presented. Theories can be used to make new predictions, e.g., the properties of newly developed materials. Physics is often the basis for new inventions, such as the refrigerator, the transistor, and the tv.
