Scope of Physics
Scope of Physics is vast as it covers quantities with length magnitude as high as 1040m or more (astronomical studies of universe) and as low as 10-14m or less (study of electrons, protons etc). Similarly the range of time scale goes from 10-22s to 1018s and mass from 10-30kg to 1055kg.
Physics is broadly divided into two types based on its scope - Classical Physicsand Modern Physics. Classical physics deal with the macroscopic phenomena while the modern physics deals with the microscopic phenomena.
