Physicists study the behaviour of the physical world at the most basic level and find practical ways to apply new knowledge gained from their research in areas of science and technology.Physicists are usually identified within three broad roles:• theoretical physicists, who develop theories or models of how particular aspects of the world work• experimental physicists, who test these theories, determining their limits and suggesting new approaches to them• applied physicists, who apply these findings in practical settings, such as within industry and through the introduction of new technology.There is interaction between all three roles and physicists generally have skills in each of these areas.
