Chemistry Physics or Biology.

Science is fundamentally inter related. You cannot understand the concepts of physics without applying it and the two contexts in which it is applied is chemistry (i.e. physical chemistry) and biology.

However, often science majors would argue as to what is the most important and pressing of these fields. I am not asking which is the fundamental, rather which is (practically speaking) the most important?

My say is bio-organic chemistry. I am (obviously) an organic chemistry major, who is also debbling into biochem. The field is open to a lot of new research, esp drug design. Science is making a lot of money nowadays due to diseases and problems to human health, therefore, I feel, that the most lucrative and indeed the most promising field of research is chem. What say you?

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

^String theory :P

I'd say biology is the most important. We definately need bio-engineers to cure AIDS, cancer, and etc, whatever disease you got.

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

String theory is currently bullshit, it hasnt been fully developed yet and its got more maths to scare me to kingdom come. Shadow, if you like quantum mechanics then the most elementary book is probably by Atkins on the topic, he has also written physical chemistry. That would be an ideal book to just peruse through. If you are in high school then you might need to invest loads of time learning differential calc.

My knowledge of maths ends at basic algebra...thus I am a chemist. Research in astronomy and theoretical physical = just as boring as being an accountant

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

lol

naw man...i'm already out of high school...and yeah i was refering to teh string theory >_>. I've always had an affinity to astronomy and i always had a facination with quatum mechanics but i'm just too lazy to take all of that math. I finished all of my math courses my sophmore year in high school so i got lazy with math since then =/

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

string theory? kewl never heard of that. Maybe i have but by a different name

but i've always liked chemistry and biology.
I love calculating formulas and i like learning about how organisms work. But what gets me is the plants. Its so boring

and wow 8 years. Forensic science interests me alot

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

string theory to be put it in simple terms, refers to the SMALLEST constituent of this universe. Something known as strings. Everything else is martian to me.

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

Lol... Something known as strings?

Well, my best would be Chemistry and Biology Love them to bits.
It's the physics that I just dont get <.<

And to answer your question, I'd say Biology and Chemistry, but i guess Physics is equally important as well.

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

Chemist is a very generalized term. You can be chemical engineer and in that there is mining, pharmaceutical, bio-medical, industrial (five or so fields here), you can be an organic chemist, writing up mechanisms and stuff.

Lab technician, pathologist, pharmacist. The list goes on.

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

couldn't tell w/c of the three is the most important, but since my favorite had been physics i'd go for physics.

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

Biology was always the better subject to me

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

If this turns into the same type of deal as "No X-Box is better!" "No Playstation is better!" kind of debate, I'm going to close this thread up and lock the key. Quit spamming or else I'll break in my ban stick on your faces.


Understanding biology and chemistry seem to be more important than understanding physics right now... As it was said before, many diseases and human (and global) afflictions could be cured if we knew more in these subjects.

Re: Chemistry Physics or Biology.

i would say physics as the world's existence itself is related to physics

physics or chemistry... biology is all about life... but physics and chemisty is a more in depth analysis
