Abstract: Whatis ‘time’? This is a question that has perplexed many a physicist andphilosophers alike. The perception of the passage of time appears ingrained inall biological systems where growth, evolution and decay of objects, etc. aremeasurable indicators of the passage of time. Here we look at various physicalmodels of time, from Newtonian to relativistic. We also explore the idea ofperception of time including the possibility of travel into the past andfuture. Time in the quantum world (as measured by differences in energytransitions of various levels) and classical world (as energy transformations)are also discussed.
