Understanding Physical Science
by Ron Kurtus (updated 17 March 2023)
Physical Science consists of the studies of Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics and Earth Science (coming soon). It is concerned with physical properties of objects, as opposed to the study of the characteristics of living things, as done in the Life Sciences.
I'm Ron Kurtus, and I've always been interested in the Physical Sciences, including teaching the subject at the college level and working in the field in industry. I believe that knowledge of Physical Science is important for the development of the products we use.
It is also an interesting and exciting subject of value in many walks of life. There is a great need for people who understand scientific principles and know how to think logically. Your knowledge and skills in these areas can help you excel in school, advance your career or improve your business.
The purpose of these free online lessons is to give you a start at improving your scientific knowledge to help you become a champion in the field.
