Physical science is study of any of the natural sciences such as physics, chemistry, and astronomy or primarily with nonliving materials. The world around us is filled with natural phenomena. In fact a good amount of what happens around us can be explained in terms of this and laws pertaining to such. The turning of milk into curd, the drying of wet clothes, the miracle of medicines, radio, TV, and almost everything like that can be expressed in terms of physics and chemistry.
Physics, Chemistry, and their numerous branches are usually called "physical science". Information obtained with the help of physical sciences tends to be more accurate and reliable than information obtained with the help of other sciences. Mathematics can be applied to them with greater ease, and therefore predictions can be made with more certainty. Physical sciences deal only with repeatable events, and therefore if a particular phenomenon is non-repeatable or non-testable then it does not come under the realm of the physical sciences.
