Applied Physics
Applied physics is intended for a particular technological or practical use. It is usually considered as a bridge or a connection between physics and engineering.
Physics (from Ancient Greek: φυσική (ἐπιστήμη), translit. physikḗ (epistḗmē), lit. 'knowledge of nature', from φύσις phýsis "nature") is the natural science that studies matter and its motion and behavior through space and time and that studies the related entities of energy and force. Physics is one of the most fundamental scientific disciplines, and its main goal is to understand how the universe behaves.
The physical doctrine of the atom has got into a state which is strongly suggestive of the epicycles of astronomy before Copernicus.
Alfred North Whitehead, Science and the Modern World (1925)
All science is either physics or stamp collecting.
As quoted in Rutherford at Manchester (1962) by J. B. Birks
The "paradox" is only a conflict between reality and your feeling of what reality "ought to be."
Richard Feynman, The Feynman Lectures on Physics (1964) Volume III, p. 18-9
