You think someday we will really rewrite Ohms law?  Or Newton's Laws of Motion?  Pascal's Law? Hooke's Law?


Perhaps this is better stated this way.  Applied physics probably won't have any reason to change....only added to.  Experimental physics will change because that is what is for and it develops the additions toward applied physics and, the 3rd branch, theoretical physics.  Theoretical physics lead to experiential physics.  Proposed and fringe theories of theoretical physics are going to be changed, altered, added to, etc...  But applied physics are pretty damn well locked in and unlikely to change regardless of what happens at the theoretical physics level.

 

"But applied physics are pretty damn well locked in and unlikely to change regardless of what happens at the theoretical physics level."

these are the kind of views i'd expect from a religious zealot; science is about doubt and constant refinement

the understanding that we constantly need to question, especially since science is observation based there is the chance that we can interpret things incorrectly

i'm not talking here about any individual laws but i'm saying that we should always have some degree of doubt on these things and think of ways to improve on them, especially because of problems like these

 

 

So you don't know the difference between applied physics, experimental physics and theoretical physics?

With specific regards to applied physics. Do we add to it?  Yes.  Do we rewrite it?  No.
