Physics

'Energy is neither created nor destroyed; it just changes shape' — Sheri Reynolds

A synonym for physics may be also a “knowledge of nature”. Being the natural science that studies both matter and its motion as well as the behaviour through time and space, physics studies the related entities of force and energy. Physics is known to be one of the core scientific disciplines. Its main goal is to figure out the way the universe behaves.

Being one of the oldest academic disciplines physics together with biology, chemistry and a few branches of mathematics were a part of a so-called “natural philosophy”. At the same time, during the scientific revolution in the 17th century, the mentioned natural sciences emerged as unique research endeavours in their own right.

Physics intersects with biophysics, quantum chemistry and interdisciplinary areas of research, having its boundaries not rigidly defined. New hypotheses in physics often explain the most fundamental mechanisms that can be studied by other sciences, suggesting new approaches to research in academic disciplines (e.g., philosophy and mathematics).

Being involved in the study of physics, one might face the need of creating the professionally-looking physics-related drawings that might lead to solving some of this science’s questions. Making the needed illustrations in the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software can be easy and convenient.

Using the Physics solution while creating various physics illustrations and physics diagrams in the ConceptDraw PRO can simplify one’s work of drawing the needed representations as it offers the already previously made samples and templates of the physics-related drawings. There are also the stencil libraries that contain many nuclear physics symbols, optics vector clipart, and mechanics that all can be used for drawing the smart-looking schemes and diagrams.

In order to draw any needed physics diagram or educational physical illustration of mechanical, optical, electrical and/or nuclear experiments and processes, any physicist might find the Physics solution a useful tool for completing their professional tasks.


There are 3 stencil libraries containing 85 vector symbols in the Physics solution.

Examples

There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw PRO application by using the Physics solution. Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.

All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE. The Physics solution is available to all ConceptDraw PRO users to get installed and used while working in the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software.
