“How history helps physicists

S.S. Gill, Ms. Preeti


The present investigation studies the history of science and of physics in particular. We learn from this study, how physics has really been done. We study how history helps us to understand not only the past, but also the present and it will guide us toward the future. It basically illustrates the power of stories. A historical perspective on science can help physicists understand what is going when they practice and it provides numerous useful tools for physicists. As every discovery has come out of a messy mix of peoples’ ideas, accidents and arguments. It takes great efforts to understand what the observation means .Thus the diversity of ideas and interpretation serves as a reminder that physics is under progress. Thus, the history of physics should make one to claim that current theories will hold forever. By this, the history of science and of physics in particular provides new ways of thinking to scientists and forces them to examine what is known to us.
