dc.description.abstract In this project, I am attempting to explain Physics concepts in every day language. The language will be understood by non-Physics majors. I am placing emphasis on comprehension, and not on computation. Complex math skills are not necessary to understanding the basic concepts of Physics.The most basic key to comprehension is the mastery of vocabulary and fundamental concepts. Too many educators are guilty of not teaching Physics, because they do not understand the vocabulary or the concepts themselves.This paper presents understandable information for teachers. If more in depth information is wanted, start by examining a high school text book.The concepts covered in this project are as follows: Gravity / Why does the moon stay up? PressureDensityMass vs. WeightI hope that this information will aid educators and students alike. We must understand the rules that govern our lives if we are to live happy and successful lives.
