What are Physicists?
Physicists seek to understand how the universe works at every level from the grand cosmos to the diminutive particle. They demonstrate their understanding of the universe descriptively and by using mathematical equations. Physicists are explorers with a strong desire to understand why the universe is the way it is.
There are two types of physicists: experimental and theoretical. Both types of physicists work in a variety of areas including astrophysics, particle physics, condensed matter physics, solid state physics, optics, electromagnetism, relativity, quantum mechanics, Newtonian physics, statistical mechanics, just to name a few.
