AP Physics C vs AP Chemistry: Which Is Better?

In summary, AP Physics C covers mechanics and electricity and magnetism, while AP Chemistry focuses on fundamental principles and concepts of chemistry. Both courses can be challenging, with AP Physics C requiring strong math and problem-solving skills and AP Chemistry requiring a strong foundation in chemistry. Both courses are beneficial for college, depending on the student's intended major. Both courses also involve hands-on learning, with AP Chemistry potentially having more opportunities for hands-on activities. It is possible to take both courses, but students should consider the workload and time commitment before making a decision.

Ok so i am currently taking AP Physics C. In our school there is a bit of a rivalry between the Physics C kids and the AP Chem kids. I was wondering what you guys thought about these two classes and reasons why Physics C is better (obvious bias lol).

Physics C is like so much better because it's like so much more fundemantal.

AP Chem is like totally derived from Physics C.

Plus Newton is like a million times smarter than any CHemistery experiment eva!
