The best way to explain what Physics "is" is
probably to tell you what people who study physics do. Physicists are
curious about how the world works, and try to figure out the simplest
explanations for stuff. Questions like "How hot is the sun", "How much
does an electron weigh", "What causes ocean tides", and "Why is the sky
blue" are all answered by studying physics.
Another answer would be to say that physics is just the special branch of science dealing with how stuff works.
We recently answered the question "What is Science"...have a look at that one also.
