I remember back in middle school, learnt physics in a few large categories:
1) force (kinetics) 2) heat 3) optical 4) electrics 5) atom physics
is it still valid or is it categorized by different rule now?
cause by this categorization:
all the computer, networking, software programming, even firmware can be part of electric physics
all the mechanical devices can be explained using appropriate kinetic physics theories
optical physics is relatively obvious (but now we have electric optics which I think is the combination of optical physics and quantum physics)
at the end of the day, everything we explained so far can be explained with physics + mathematics + chemistry (I would like roughly refer to biology here as well).
from this sense fully understanding code fundamentals of physics will help us master any of the professions that we are in now. Is it okay to interpret physics that way?
