You enter the laboratory and see an experiment. How will you know which class is it? If it's green and wiggles, it's biology.
If it stinks, it's chemistry.
If it doesn't work, it's physics. Seen on the door to a light-wave lab:
"CAUTION! Do not look into laser with remaining good eye." Absolute zero is cool. An engineer, a physicist, a mathematician, and a mystic were asked to name the greatest invention of all times.
The engineer chose fire, which gave humanity power over matter.
The physicist chose the wheel, which gave humanity the power over space.
The mathematician chose the alphabet, which gave humanity power over symbols. The mystic chose the thermos bottle.
"Why a thermos bottle?" the others asked. "Because the thermos keeps hot liquids hot in winter and cold liquids cold in summer." "Yes so what?" "Think about it." said the mystic reverently. That little bottle how does it know A hydrogen atom lost its electron and went to the police station to file a missing electron report. He was questioned by the police: "Haven't you just misplaced it somewhere? Are you sure that your electron is really lost?"

Michael Faraday
The English chemist and physicist Michael Faraday, b. Sept. 22, 1791, d. Aug. 25, 1867, is known for his pioneering experiments in electricity and magnetism. Many consider him the greatest experimentalist who ever lived. Several concepts that he derived directly from experiments, such as lines of magnetic force, have become common ideas in modern physics. Faraday was born at Newington, Surrey, near London. He received little more than a primary education, and at the age of 14 he was apprenticed to a bookbinder. There he became interested in the physical and chemical works of the time. After hearing a lecture by the famous chemist Humphry Davy, he sent Davy the notes he had made of his lectures. As a result Faraday was appointed, at the age of 21, assistant to Davy in the laboratory of the Royal Institution in London. During the initial years of his scientific work, Faraday occupied himself mainly with chemical problems. He discovered two new chlorides of carbon and succeeded in liquefying chlorine and other gases. He isolated benzene in 1825, the year in which he was appointed director of the laboratory. Davy, who had the greatest influence on Faraday's thinking, had shown in 1807 that the metals sodium and potassium can be precipitated from their compounds by an electric current, a process known as electrolysis. Faraday's vigorous pursuit of these experiments led in 1834 to what became known as Faraday's laws of electrolysis.

12. TeXsis - TeX Macros For Physicists
This package provides a number of useful features for typesetting research papers. It is an extension to Plain Tex.
TeX macros for Physicists
Description Manual Download License ...
TeXsis is a Plain TeX macro package which provides useful features for typesetting research papers and related documents, such as:
  • Automatic numbering of equations, figures, tables and references;
  • Simpified control of type sizes, line spacing, footnotes, running headlines and footlines, and tables of contents, figures and tables;
  • Specialized document formats for research papers, preprints and "e-prints," conference proceedings, theses, books, referee reports, letters, and memoranda;
  • Specialized environments for lists, theorems and proofs, centered or non-justified text, and listing computer code;
  • Specialized macros for easily constructing ruled tables;
  • Simplified means of constructing an index for a book or thesis, using the Makeindex program;
  • Easy to use double column formatting;
TeXsis was originally designed for use by physicists, but others may also find it useful. It is completely compatible with Plain TeX. TeXsis is an extension of "Plain" TeX, so anything you know how to do in plain TeX you can do in TeXsis. TeXsis macro instructions are simply abbreviations for often used combinations of control sequences used to typeset physics documents. For more information about Plain TeX see the manual entry for "tex", or

In 1927, the exciting time that saw the development of the quantum theory, which had a profound effect on physics and chemistry, some of greatest scientists of the time were gathered at the International Solvay Conference at Brussels, Belgium. In one of the pictures taken of that conference, you can see:

Durrenmatt's The Physicists
Adapted for Darwin College and presented by Origin in Darwin Hall, 5-6 December 1996
The Swiss playwright Friedrich Durrenmatt is a sort of dramatic Roal Dahl, writing macabre melodramas with a serious and sinister twist, a genre of which The Physicists is a fine if rather dated example. It was written in the MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) world of the Cold War, when we all knew that friction between NATO and the Warsaw Pact might at any time provoke the use of nuclear weapons to wipe the earth ten times over. That prospect was a constant backdrop to our lives then, as it isn't now: the weapons still exist, of course, and madmen, terrorists, dictators and ideologues might still acquire and threaten to use them; but at least we no longer live in states whose defence relies on deterring enemies by threatening to destroy the world if they attack. This too is why spies are less fascinating now than they were in Bond's heyday, when the stakes they played for were apparently so much higher.
