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 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.

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

First test that I failed in engineering, congrats electromagnetism.

2 Quantum Mechanics

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.

Dear quantum mechanics I don't love you but why You love me :(

It is very fun, but that doesn't make it less difficult.

Quantum, quantum, quantum, when will you ever be nice to me?!?!?!

3 Projectile Motion

Projectile motion, while being one of the first things students learn in physics, is actually one of the most difficult to grasp and enigmatic entities in the entirety of physics. Richard Feynman once said, "Projectile motion. A topic of immense importance and of utter confusion. If you throw a ball with a known initial velocity, and you know something about the medium it travels through as well as gravity, you can know exactly where it will land. How in the world does this work? It is enigmatic". The true mysteries of projectile motion are still yet to be discovered and can only be postulated as of today's research.

You guys must be kidding, any regular physics student can eat this, by looking at the other topics I can say that the one who made this list is a kid

I struggled so much with projectile motion. I think it must be one of the hardest things besides Newton's First Law. Maxwell's Equations were wicked easy though, I don't understand why we don't start with those.

Projectile motion is not hard, its fairly easy. I would say quantum mechanics is the hardest

4 Relative Velocity

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

5 Electronics
6 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

7 Force
8 Motions
9 String Theory

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.

The Newcomers

? 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.

? Virtual Particles

The Contenders

11 Pressure

Hardest ever

12 Electricity

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.

13 General Relativity

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.

14 Astronomy

Easy - TheRemixr

15 Thermodynamics

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

Best and interdisting

This sucks

16 Black Holes

What a fantastic topic but need patience to understand

Just think about it...

17 Rocket Science V 1 Comment
18 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. :(
