Factors responsible for progress of Physics
Hypothesis, Axiom and Models
Hypothesis is a supposition without assuming that it is true. It may not be proved but can be verified through a series of experiments.
Axiom is a self-evident truth that it is accepted without controversy or question.
Model is a theory proposed to explain observed phenomena.
Assumption is the basis of physics, where a number of phenomena can be explained. These assumptions are made from experiments, observation and a lot of statistical data.
