how has physics actually contributed in explaining the complexities of our world,what are the latest developments that have at least theoretically attempted an explanation?

Physics, in my opinion, is the fundemental science because it is the basic of them all, chemistry doesnt even come close to how in-debt physics goes. As for how it has explained somethings, yes it has. We have figured out that there are 4 fundemental forces in the universe, Gravity, Electromagnetic, Strong-nuclear and Weak-nuclear. We have also formulated equations where we can combine Electro, Strong-n, and Weak-n into one force! which is pretty amazing, the final step is finding the so called Super Force, the one that started it all. We are getting closer to finding it

Umm, that's because he's the only one that posted, you probably we're seeing the physicsorg links. Sorry but I had to point it out.

Try the book called Super Force by Paul Davies. You can find it on Amazon. I have actually read most of it, thats where i learned most of it. Its one of the best books I have ever read. hope you enjoy it
Sincerely,

i've heard people describe it as physics is the science behind engineering.
if you look at it that way, which makes sense, because many of today's technological advances comes from the field of engineering without the study of physics our standard of living would not be the same without phyics.

dnp33 is right. Engineering is basically just applied physics. A world without physics would be a world without refrigerators, microwaves, electricity, cars, airplanes, telephones, radio/television, computers, etc. Harnessing the power of the atom in the last century had a huge political and social impact. Although physics can often seem aloof and highly theoretical, it has enormous practical applications.

I totally agree with these guys 100%. Thats why im becoming an engineer. All those other professions can suck it! ha ha
