# Physics Of Solids MCQs

For your better entry test preparation and better Physics MCQs preparation, in this section, we are going to post Physics Of Solids MCQs.

Physics Of Solids is also known as Solid-state physics. It is the branch of Physics which deals with the study of rigid matter, or solids, through methods such as quantum mechanics, crystallography, electromagnetism, and metallurgy.

Solid-state physics studies how the large-scale properties of solid materials result from their atomic-scale properties.
