Physics 30: Physics is the "common sense" science. It involves universal laws and the study of the behaviour and relationships of physical phenomena. In addition to the intrinsic beauty of physics, it also leads to an understanding of many practical applications and ideas in other areas of science. Physics extends into the realm of technology and applied sciences. Applications in engineering, medicine, and a wide variety of other fields can be grasped by someone who has a good basic understanding of physics.
