Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi, I was considering the notion of studying both physics and chemistry, but am reluctant to decide definitively so. I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a relationship between the two, in that they compliment each other, because I plan on doing research in the field of physics. Does having extensive knowledge in chemistry help in some aspects of physics? Thank you

Bashyboy,
Every physicist knows some chemistry, and every chemist knows some physics. Physical chemistry is where the two subjects meet. So yes, that is a smart choice if you decide that this field of science interests you. Do some research on it.

The extent to how much a dual major would help you depends on what you want to do research in really.
