    Hey! So basically the problem is I was put in a physics class because all the others were full! I'm terrible at it and as a result Im not a big fan of the subject! so anyway i have to write about how physics applies to the job of a forensic physicist! i know they use ballistics , blood spatter analysis and auto-accident recreation but could you tell me how they use physics in these! Thanks so much! any info appreciated!

    They mention forensic engineering as one of the specialties, but not forensic physics per se. Probably pretty close as a practical matter.
