# Top Ten Hardest Physics Topics

**09ShamsulBahriel**Physics is number one my best things to learn. But, there's something that you may fed up when you learn them.

### The Top Ten

*1*

**Quantum Mechanics**

I love physics but to say some of it's laws are just too much hard. Best example is quantum mechanics. Just make your mind tiny to understand it. It's okay to say that it's very interesting topic.

It is, in my opinion the easiest topic of physics.

The field of study is super intragate and difficult to master,but it's also a excellent field for people willing to tackle a challenge.

Well, Niels Bohr said that anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it. Quantum Mechanics are fascinating, but I know that even the greatest of minds see it as hard. I love Quantum Mechanics from Heisenberg to Schroedinger.

**Electromagnetism**

It took time and patience to learn this properly, and even then, I'm confused when to use the Left-Hand Rule, and when to use the Right-Hand Rule. But it's more interesting than any other topic, definitely.

I agree. But why is EM so difficult to understand?

EM is the basis of almost everything, yet there are not too many good professors who can teach it in an intuitive manner. So definitely the hardest topic, hands down!

It is about six years ago since I studied physics and I can still remember very well how tough electromagnetism was

**Projectile Motion**

Most of my classmates find it hard, but in my opinion, it isn't

You need to know something about this, without any knowledge you won't get the answer

If you know how to imagine, it is a piece of cake for you

GOD

**Electronics**

*5*

**String Theory**

How does this not top the list, the amount of mathematical rigur needed to even begin understanding this is at a master's or PhD level in theoretical or mathematical physics, this is completely outside the learning experience even for people who study pure physics.

You need to master Quantum Mechanics before even think to start into string theory, and even then, is very hard to fully understand it.

One of the most specialist areas in all of Physics. Most of Physics, nailed it and love it, but String Theory just drives me this way and that! But it's still awesome, despite the fact that it's entirely mathematical and isn't tested yet.

I love this theory because it Theory of everything

*6*

**Relative Velocity**

es hard

This topic has always made me suffer in physics. Rest of all the topis mentioned are quite easy. This is not a topic in modern physics. Slope problems are damn easy

*7*

**General Relativity**

Indeed Einstein's field equations are difficult to understand. I will just say that it's not even included in the mandatory part of a regular Physic's degree (Special relativity is) because to grasp the noumerous concepts it contains you require many other advanced subjects first (tensor calculus, partial differential equations (these come after ordinary differencial equations, special relativity, and also a very good undestanding of waves (ie armonic oscillators and vibrations, electromagnetism, optics). So you may understand Wikipedia's General relativity website, but to fully comprehend the equations and their implications is another story.

It is a very interesting topic to learn, but also very confusing at times, the hardest of any other theory of relativity. I don't think you can learn it just by reading, you need to see what happens with animations just to get a glimpse of what's happening, unlike many different topics in physics.

Very hard to grasp

*8*

**Force**

Electric bill

I think this was put on here by a primary school pupilâ€¦ - **wadkad**

Who put this thing in here? It is elementary level Physics.

The interaction between objects is known as force. It may be push or pull ( it depends on the nature of interacting objects)

*9*

**Radiation**

It's actually not difficult, if you love the amazing world of physics.. then it's certainly not ( trust me it's great ) - **Ananya**

*10*

**Motions**

Extremely hypothetical

### The Newcomers

*?*

**Solid State Physics**

Just danger

### The Contenders

*11*

**Rocket Science**

True

*12*

**Thermodynamics**

The first law is wrong

Like I will argue this one is as hard as QM. But the equations aren't that hard, thankfully. Still failed this stuff

Man this is the best yet one of the most difficult in physics

This sucks

**Astronomy**

Can be a lot tricky... but is a heck lot amazing when you feel it..!

So much out there that even college can't cover it all. It's something so amazing if enjoyed and studied well, but it can be tricky!

Easy - **TheRemixr**

*14*

**Classical Mechanics**

Just one word.."TOUGH! "

It is tough

*15*

**Black Holes**

What you need is fantasy and patience. If you have these you are in good way.

What a fantastic topic but need patience to understand

Just think about it...

*16*

**Pressure**

Hardest ever

*17*

**Simple Harmonic Motion**

The worst and most difficult topic ever! tons of formulas, no matter how hard I try, I just can't understand it. :(

*18*

**Dark Energy**

It is the most difficult

As don't have much information about it

And there is so much for imaging about it

*19*

**Electricity**

"Hard"

Just understand the concept.

It is the best branch

Electrons have dual nature same as light

Actually this is vast yet very easy if you use the Laws in a practical manner like Maxwells laws,Flemings law,Ohms law etc.First understand the concept android try it practically it will sink in your brain.

**Cosmology**

*21*

**Waves**

They are a bit difficult

*22*

**Chaos Theory**

*23*

**Special Relativity**

What's the meaning

*24*

**Virtual Particles**

*25*

**Statistical Mechanics**

Classical vs Quantum statistics, then Quantum vs Quantum statistics, again Quantum vs Quantum statistics. Bosons vs Fermions vs Classicals. In the game Metal Gear REVENGEANCE (2013) Jetstream Sam's sword works on Fermi Dirac statistics.

*26*

**Light**

*27*

**Rotational Mechanics**

Toughest chapter for 11th students

*28*

**Nuclear Physics**

Nuclear physics is the most interesting but one needs to have basic knowledge of chemistry and a little of physics

*29*

**Fluid Dynamics**

Ever heard of turbulent Energy Dissipation equation? If not look it up, It makes me want to die more than Einsteins field equations...help me.

*30*

**Moment of Inertia**

yes

*31*

**Engineering**

*32*

**Units and Dimension**

Units and dimensions.

*33*

**Heat**

*34*

**Friction**

*35*

**Gravity**

*36*

**Mass**

*37*

**Condensed Matter**

*38*

**Laws of Motion**

It's very tough

*39*

**Wave Mechanics**

*40*

**Blue Chickens**

Extremely mind boggling and intriguing. Einstein once looked at the and said "MOFO"

*41*

**The Quantum Structural and Function of Quarks**

It is one of the most easiest sub. It is were you learn about the basics of all the types of quarks what are their funtions and why do we need them.

*42*

**Photometry**

What's is going with this topic... Don't know
