Phyisics or Chemistry
« on: May 14, 2005, 12:54:52 AM »
Alright, I just finished siging up for my classes next year. I wanted your guys opinpon on the phyisics and Chemistry. Do you guys see Chemistry more important in signing up for college and the long run. Or is the other way around. Thnks.  ???

college as in considering physics or chemistry for your undergraduate degree?

They posted in the high school chemistry board. ;)
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

They are equally important, you will definitely need to concentrate on both.  However, i would take chemsitry first.

is it not possible to take both? i believe chemistry and physics taught at the pre-university level emphasises on 2 very different things. pre-u chemistry focuses on interactions between molecules whereas pre-u physics emphasis on mechanics. You would need a thorough idea of both if you were to study engineering at university (in my opinion). They goes hand in hand in engineering design.

Chemicalforums will be naturally biased towards an answer.   ::)

You can take both. Its just that, I kinda think that Phyisics is not that helpful towards it. But if it does make collegers look at my application more. Then I would take it.

it will be useful just in case you decide to study engineering at university. it isn't a nice experience to find yourself lagging behind your peers when university just started.
