What is physics?

Physics (Greek phusis: nature) is the science of Nature in the broadest sense. Physicists study the behavior and interactions of matter and energy across space and time, which are referred to as physical phenomena. Theories of physics are generally expressed as mathematical relations. Well-established theories are often referred to as physical laws or laws of physics.
