“The principle of science, the definition almost, is the following; the test of all knowledge is experiment.
Experiment is the soul judge of scientific truth. But what is the source of knowledge? Where do the
laws that are to be tested come from? Experiment, itself, helps to produce these laws, in the sense
that it give us hints. But also needed is imagination to create from these hints the great generalizations
– to guess at the wonderful, simple, but very strange pattern beneath them all , and then to experiment
to check again whether we made the right guess………” Richard Feynman
Physics is a complex structure of concepts, hypothesis, theories and observations that are interrelated in such a way that it is often difficult to separate inferences based on theories from direct observations based primarily on laboratories experiments. Student should understand that experimental evidence is the basis of our knowledge of the laws of physics and that physics is not merely a collection of equations and text book problems. In this context the Loyola College is known for itsinnovative teaching with practical subject combinations. TheDepartment is delivering the quality education. The teachers are constantly interacting with students apart from classroom teaching, organizing weekly seminars and providing a lot of information about research and learning opportunities in and outside the country. We are constantly in touch with the new developments in the scientific world. Apart from a well-equipped lab, students are given practical exposure to field works and projects related to Physics.
