Physics is a natural science based on experiments, measurements and mathematical analysis with the purpose of finding quantitative physical laws for everything from the nano world of the microcosms to the planets, solar systems and galaxies that occupy the macro cosmos. Physics - the study of matter, energy and their interactions - is an international enterprise, which plays a key role in the future progress of humankind. ... Physics generates fundamental knowledge needed for the future technological advances that will continue to drive the economic engines of the world. Prasanta Chandra Mahalanobis Mahavidyalaya also feels the necessity of opening Department of Physics as there are another two departments in basic science: Chemistry and Mathematics. Dr. Shyamal Karmakar, Principal of this college joined on 03.07.2015. Principal was interested to open the department of physics as his academic background is in the subject of Physics. But, to open a laboratory based department like physics, first of all the college has to set up the physics laboratory. And the fund was generated by a grant of MP LAD and a laboratory was set up for general course. The subject has been opened from the academic session 2017-18 in General Stream and mainly the students admitted in the Honours course in Mathematics opted the Physics as one of their general subject. The students are benefited to have the subjects cycle Physics-Chemistry-Mathematics. The faculties of the departments are young and research oriented and devoted in teaching also. The authority is now feeling the necessity of opening the honours course in physics when the annexed building will be ready and a well-equipped laboratory will be developed.
