1 Physics 4D Modern Physics History At the end of the 19 th century scientists pretty much believed that they knew everything there was to know about physics- with the exception of some “minor” discrepancies. 1. Classical Mechanics A. Newton’s Laws of Motion B. Law of Gravitation 2. Classical Electromagnetism (Maxwell’s Equations) A. enc o q Ed A ε •= G G v B. B dA o G G v C. B d l dt Φ G G v D. E oo o d Bd l I dt µµ Φ + G G v 3. Laws of Thermodynamics and Kinetic Theory of Gas These theories/Laws were very successful in describing and explaining our physical world. However, in each of these areas of physics you were always able to find an experiment in which the results did NOT agree with the theory! That is, there was a discrepancy between theory and experiment.
