Physics is the study of the fundamental behavior of the natural world. Physicists seek to understand nature at the most basic level in order to establish an experimental and theoretical foundation for scientific knowledge. At Rollins College, faculty and students in the Department of Physics focus on a variety of areas including experimental and theoretical studies of musical instruments, galaxy formation, planetary evolution, physical acoustics, ultrasonic spectroscopy, and computational atomic scattering.
