  Physical science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Physical science is an encompassing term for the branches of natural science, and science (generally), that study non-living systems, in contrast to the biological sciences.
Natural sciences generally, and physical sciences particularly, tend to be more reductionist sciences, in contrast to the more holistic social sciences; i.e., physical science tends to explain the whole system from the system's fundamental parts, whereas social science tends to explain the whole system as more than the mere sum of its fundamental parts.
Physics is the science of nature in the broadest sense, dealing with the fundamentals of matter, energy, and the forces of nature governing the interactions between particles (such as molecules, atoms, or subatomic particles).

 Physical Science
The Physical Science curriculum is designed to continue the investigation of the physical sciences begun in earlier grades.
Physical science is rich in examples of science as a human endeavor, historical perspectives on the development of scientific understanding, and the nature and role of science.
Although original student research is often relegated to a yearly science fair project, continuing student involvement in research contributes immensely to their understanding of the process of science and to their problem-solving abilities.

During the last 50 years, physical sciences research at Bell Labs has played a crucial role in enabling modern communication networks through the creation of much of its physical layer material and component infrastructure.
While a substantial part of our research can be described as being associated with the physical layer of the network, we have an increasing presence at the system level, where, in recent years, we have been making significant contributions synergistic with those of other laboratories.
Understanding the physical limits of communication technologies is part of the mission of physical research.
