There are quite a few different sub branches in Physics, too many to list completely. Instead, you can search online for websites that are specific in dealing with Physics and its sub branches, meaning that you can get a much more informed answer and see every different sub branch of Physics that you could imagine.

These are some of the sub branches in Physics:

• Thermodynamics
• Electromagnetism
• Optics
• Quantum physics
• Mechanics (Dynamic and static)
• Statistical mechanics
• Relativity

All of these branches add up to create the field of science that is Physics. Physics is the study of matter, in regards to topics such as movement, energy and force. It is a natural science and is sometimes said to be the analysis of nature, in a very broad sense. It is arguably one of the oldest branches of science, given that matter has been on Earth by the time science came about. Without humans, there would be no science, quite obviously.

Even though it is such an old branch of science, physics is being used in modern ways to look at the things we are creating now and helping us understand how things that we still use and make today work. For example, physics has contributed towards the study of electromagnetism and nuclear physics, in the fact that new products have been created such as televisions, nuclear weapons and household appliances.

The importance of science in today's society is still as strong as ever, probably even more so. It has helped us with many scientific breakthroughs and basically helps us understand the world in which we live right now. Recently, however, students have been less than keen to study the topic despite the need for more scientists and new ideas all of the time.

*  Astrophysics
      Astrophysics is the branch of astronomy that deals with the physics of the universe, including the physical properties (luminosity, density, temperature and chemical composition) of astronomical objects such as stars, galaxies, and the interstellar medium, as well as their interactions.
    * Atomic and molecular physics
      The study of the structure and characteristics of atoms and molecules.
    * Biophysics
      The science of the application of the laws of physics to life processes.
    * Condensed-matter (solid-state) physics
      The study of the physical properties of solids, such as electrical, dielectric, elastic, and thermal properties, and their understanding in terms of fundamental physical laws.
    * Cosmology
      The study of the universe as a whole, of the contents, structure, and evolution of the universe from the beginning of time to the future.
    * Geophysics
      the study of the physical characteristics and properties of the earth; including geodesy, seismology, meteorology, oceanography, atmospheric electricity, terrestrial magnetism, and tidal phenomena.
    * Mechanics
      the branch of physics concerned with the motion of bodies in a frame of reference.
    * Statistical Mechanics
      The discipline that attempts to relate the properties of macroscopic systems to their atomic and molecular constituents.
    * Theoretical physics
      Theoretical physics attempts to understand the world by making a model of reality, used for rationalizing, explaining, and predicting physical phenomena through a "physical theory".
    * Thermodynamics
      The study of the effects of changes in temperature, pressure, and volume on physical systems at the macroscopic scale by analyzing the collective motion of their particles using statistics.
