Fact is an and, in contrast with a, which is an explanation of or interpretation of facts. Physics facts are believed to be independent from the observer in that no matter which physist observes a phenomenon, all will reach the same necessary conclusion. therefore facts are observation made and lined out in physics. A theory is a logically self-consistent or framework for describing the behavior of a related set of natural or social phenomena. it is a testable of the manner of interaction of a set of

Branches of physics under classecal modern physics?

Classical theories in physics usually refer to those theories that have predictability or determinancy. The theories don't embody the uncertainty principle that quantum mechanics has. And so, the only branch I can think of right now is only General Relativity.

How does facts help scientist?

Scientists make theories or equations that are not proved. Facts prove or disprove the theories or the equations. Note: -Some theories or equations can't be proved or disproved by facts so they are proved or disproved by the majority of scientists.

Do you capitalize physics theories?

No, theories are not capitalized. However, if the theory contains a name (for example Einstein) then this should be capitalized as it is a proper noun.

Why physics considered as a experimental science?

Physics is considered a a experimental science because much (70%) of physicists work is conducting experiments. Experiments are used to test relationships and theories. The result of the experiments weed out theories and support theories, other experimetns test rhe range of a relationship.

Why is Albert Enstein still important today?

It is because he is the "father", if you will, of modern physics. While many of theories may be inaccurate, it is because of him that physics is where it is today.

What are the fields of physics?

There are two main fields of physics. They are:Applied physics-Engineering and stuff like that including other branches like astrophysics (physics in astronomy) and particle physics (study of physics in particles like atoms. Particle physics also is part of theoretical physics.).Theoretical physics-Deals with creating and proving theories related to the universe like string theory and the big bang theory (There are more than just those. They are just more popular ones.). Particle physics ties into theoretical physics by theorizing about different particles that may or may not exist. Those theories are being tested now in particle accelerators all over the world.
