Hello everyone, just joined the forum. I need some solid advice about choosing my career path, I've read some of the previous posts on the topic, but would greatly appreciate any further help! I'm 18 years old, at the end of high school. I love and enjoy both Physics and Chemistry, and work well in both (as well as math). I would like to do my Masters and PhD, and eventually get into research and academia. The only problem is I haven't been able to choose between Chemistry and Physics. Could you tell me what it's like to be a physicist and carry out research? Or, what it's like to be a chemist? (if there's anyone out there willing to answer :P) What are the main differences in the approaches of the 2 fields?
