Math is said to be a superset of physics. Can geometry then, a subset of mathematics, be formally considered a superset of physics?

It means that the concepts and principles of mathematics are used to understand and describe the laws of physics. Math provides a framework for analyzing and solving problems in physics.
Math is considered a superset of physics because it is the language in which the laws of physics can be expressed and understood. Many physical phenomena can be described using mathematical equations and formulas.
Math helps in understanding physics by providing tools to analyze and solve complex problems. It allows us to make precise measurements, create models and simulations, and make predictions about the behavior of physical systems.
No, physics cannot exist without math. Math is the foundation of physics and is essential for understanding and describing the natural world. Without math, it would be challenging to make accurate predictions and explanations about physical phenomena.
Math is used in physics in various ways, such as calculating the trajectory of a projectile, predicting the behavior of particles in a fluid, and describing the motion of objects in space. Math is also used to derive equations and laws that govern different aspects of physics, such as Newton's laws of motion and Einstein's theory of relativity.
