The general public's awareness of physics and its importance in our daily life is decreasing Action must be taken by the international physics community and its importance in our daily life is decreasing. The number of physics students has declined dramatically. to share its visions and convictions about physics with politicians and the public at large. i i Physics not only plays an important role in the development of science and technology, but also has a tremendous impact on our society . Although this may be evident to physicists it is not necessarily the case for everyone Although this may be evident to physicists, it is not necessarily the case for everyone. At the dawn of the 21 st century the contributions of physics to other sciences will be essential to solving global problems such as energy production, environmental protection and public health.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
