Hello sir

Sir can you please expalain me that why scientist have classified everything around us into matter. Sir behind any invention or classification there a reason i am eager to know the reason. Please expalin

sir please try to reply in detail

Answer
Hi Shilpa,

Scientist only concern themselves with reproducible phenomina (so NOT dreams, imagination, feelings, other-worldly stuff like religions). The universe is not all classified as matter. There is matter and forces.

Forces are such things as light (actually all electro-magnetic radiation), gravity, electricity, magnetism, mechanical force and forces that are concerned with nuclear forces inside atoms.

Matter has three simple sorts, liquid, solid and gas (there are others such as plasma etc.). When any matter is chemically analysed, it is always made up of a few of the chemical elements of which commonly there are about 110 stable ones.

I hope this helps.
Best wishes,
Kevin
