what is the difference between physical environment and social environment
The physical environment refers to the external, tangible surroundings in which an organism exists and which can influence its behaviour and development. It includes landforms, soil types and climate.
The social environment is the identical or similar social positions and social roles as a whole that influence the individuals of a group. The social environment of an individual is the culture that he or she was educated and/or lives in, and the people and institutions with whom the person interacts.
Hence, physical environment does not refer to social life of living organisms and vice versa.
