ICSE Class 8 Physics

The science of matter and energy along with their interactions with each other, classified into traditional fields such as acoustics, optics, mechanics, thermodynamics, and electromagnetism is known as Physics. The modern extension of physics includes atomic and nuclear physics, cryogenics, solid-state physics, particle physics, and plasma physics.

Why should you learn physics in Class 8?

  1. Physics deals with fundamentals and helps us to see the relationship between visibly different phenomena.
  2. Physics renders quantitative and analytic skills required for analysing data and solving problems
  3. Physics is the foundation for almost all advanced technology and are applied in different tools and instruments which are commonly used in scientific, engineering and medical industries.
  4. The manufacturing industry is controlled by technologies based on physics.
