Velocity. Force. Stress. Angle. Friction. After hearing these words, one might think about all the days spent in the class physics to do the calculation. Many students enjoy the task of assuming the mass of as body is “m” and it is falling from the height of “h”. And finding the energy of the freely falling body at the height. There are also some students who keep reading the question who even made the physics. 

No matter what a student thinks about the subject. Knowingly or unknowingly, people are always using the laws of physics in day-to-day life. The hidden thing is that no one spends time sitting on the road and doing the calculation. The human mind is faster to judge everything to take the action. One even calculates the speed of another vehicle to cross the road safely. The human mind is prone to make the calculating phase feel natural and with the flow putting no pressure in the mind. It’s all depends on the number of times a task is carried on.
