Physical Sciences

The Physical Science program, which investigates the inorganic universe, includes the disciplines of astronomy, physics, chemistry, computer science, earth sciences, mathematics, and statistics. In contrast to life science, physical science is a subfield of natural science that looks at inanimate objects. The physical sciences are its several divisions, each of which is known as physical science. A vast area of study known as natural science uses empirical data to understand and forecast how natural processes occur. To be classified as a scientific theory in the natural sciences, a hypothesis needs to be supported by actual data. Some criteria and techniques used for this include validity, accuracy, and social processes of quality control, such as peer review and repetition of findings.
