Physics is, by common consent, the fundamental science. This statement may be justified primarily in the fact that the younger sciences are considered scientific only to the extent that their concepts are logically reducible to those of physics. Moreover, the basic techniques of laboratory observation and measurement as well as the basic instruments used in the other sciences originated in the physics laboratory.
