Hello everyone, I have two questions about physics in general. The first one being, how do you effectively learn physics and the problem solving skills involved into it? I usually end up searching for the solution online and I do really want to become independent. How do I succeed in doing so? I'm not talking about experimenting in a laboratorium, I am talking about analysing a piece of text (the maths is never the problem unless I forgot a formula, it's usually is how I should start). Can this skill even be improved? The second one being, how much studying is recommended if I want to succeed in the physical sciences (mostly astrophysics)? I'm currently studying 3-9 hours a day but I do not that that makes up for my intellectual capabilities as my problem solving skills aren't very well. Should I study more or just focus on improving my problem in the first question? Thanks.
