what is a typical day on the job as a physicist
Well, different kinds of physicists have very different days. Experimental physicists might spend all day working in a lab trying to get an experiment to work, or they might spend all day analyzing the data from an experiment. Other times they work very hard to prepare and get ready for experiments. They also have to do a lot of reading to find out what other people are studying. Many physicists also spend a lot of time working with computers to run programs important for their work.
