Some of the symbols in physics can be very non-intuitive, wouldn't it be nice to know from where they came? The goal of this study was two-fold. First, to research the etymology of the names and symbols of physcis to better understand how they were named. Also, to determine how much interest there is on the subject in various levels of physics education, which was accomplished via a survey and multiple interviews.
