Excerpt
Introduction: Physics can be defined as the science of predicting the motion of objects. A science is supposed to be quantitative: the goal of physics is to predict the function x(t) that gives the position of an object as a function of time. (More precisely, in a three-dimensional space we need the three functions x(t), y(t), and z(t) that determine the three coordinates of our object) The possibility of a physical science is obvious from our daily observation of regularities in the motion of objects. We notice that an object under well-defined conditions will always move in the same way. This knowledge is essential to our interactions with Nature. In fact, our brain is so good at predicting motion that it makes many decisions automatically. Think about the complicated process of walking. How much time do you spend planning the next step? Even animals can do an excellent job at predicting motion. Just watch the fascinating TV program This is my dog. The claim that physics is one of the most difficult subjects is therefore ridiculous.
