Posted May 15, 2019 05:31:50 We’ve all been there.
You’re waiting in line for a plane ticket, you have no idea what’s going to happen when it arrives.
Then you get an email from your agent telling you the flight has been cancelled.
What are you going to do?
Well, maybe you should be thinking about getting out of the airport and buying a cheap hotel room for a couple of nights before you fly home.
The law of physics may be the law of life, but it’s also the law that governs what we can expect in the real world.
As physics teacher David Wooten explained to Science Insider, the laws of physics are just as applicable in our everyday lives as they are in the physical world.
“We can be pretty certain about things when we have a certain level of information, but we don’t necessarily know that for certain,” Wootens told Science Insider.
“When the situation changes, we don.
We’re not sure.”
In the real life, there are many things we can’t know for sure.
For example, you know your body temperature better than your neighbor.
But you don’t know what that temperature is going to be on that particular day.
Or how much sleep you’re going to get on that specific night.
Or what kind of food you’re likely to eat.
Or even what kind and how much alcohol you’re drinking.
That’s the problem with physics.
It’s very difficult to determine what the physics of a situation will be at any given moment.
For instance, when a plane crashes into a building, it’s not the physics that’s going on that causes the damage, but the physics on the ground.
That makes it very difficult for us to determine the cause of the damage and, therefore, determine how long it takes to repair the damage.
So, in the end, we have to rely on physics to tell us what we should do.
That means, if we have information that tells us that a plane crash will happen, we should try to stay at home.
But if we don and it doesn’t, then we’ll have to move on.
This is why, as physics professor Dan Bortz says, we’ve learned to accept that the world has a “black box” of physics.
That is, if it’s very obvious, it doesn´t exist.
That way, we can rely on the “black boxes” of nature to inform our decisions.
But that means we have no guarantee that we’ll know what’s really going on when things are happening.
It also means we need to understand what’s happening in the world before we make decisions.
That´s why physics professor David Wurtzel told Science Insiders that when you’re looking at the laws that govern the behavior of objects in the universe, you need to be “careful” with what you put in your mind.
“It’s important to know what you´re seeing,” Wurtz said.
“If you’re thinking, ‘Oh, this will never happen,’ it won’t.
You need to know that.”
As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
