How much time do you spend on physics each day?

In summary, the speakers in this conversation are discussing their daily habits and time spent on studying physics. They both have a strong interest in the subject and engage in it daily, whether it is through solving equations and creating problems or setting aside specific study time for homework and review. The time spent on physics varies depending on the individual's understanding and workload, but they both admit to spending a considerable amount of time on it.

How much time do you spend on physics each day? Or actually, do you even spend time on physics every single day? I'm curious to know how much time other physics lovers/enthusiasts spend on the subject.

I too am curious about this!
Personally I do physics when I feel, which is usually everyday(not counting homework). I like to play with equations and make problems for myself. How long I spend on "playing" depends on how I feel but I find myself thinking about problems almost all the time(on the bus, go out for walks etc). Sometimes, like today, I woke up and figured out the solution to a problem I was working on yesterday.

I usually have set study time specifically for physics homework/review/studying which is every other day for 1-4 hours depending how much I material I need to review, how many problem sets, how well I understand the material. If I don't understand a concept I can spend the whole day reading, watching lectures, and searching the internet to understand.

I have nuclear engineering classes, mechanical engineering classes and physics classes to take, so those hours accumulate plus homework. But on my own? I could stay up til 2 am reading about Schrodinger's cat every day. Probably too much time, in other words. :)
 

Related to How much time do you spend on physics each day?

1. How much time do you spend on physics each day?

As a scientist, my daily schedule varies depending on my research and experiments. However, on average, I spend about 8-10 hours per day working on physics-related tasks.

2. Do you spend more time on theoretical or experimental physics?

It depends on the stage of my research. In the initial stages, I spend more time on theoretical physics as I develop hypotheses and models. However, as my research progresses, I spend more time on experimental physics to test and validate my theories.

3. Can you explain your daily routine as a physicist?

My daily routine involves a combination of tasks such as reading and analyzing scientific literature, conducting experiments, analyzing data, and collaborating with other researchers. I also spend time attending conferences and giving presentations.

4. How do you balance your time between different projects in physics?

As a scientist, time management is crucial. I prioritize my tasks based on their deadlines and importance. I also set specific time blocks for each project to ensure I am making progress on all of them.

5. Is there a specific time of day that you find most productive for working on physics?

I do not have a specific time of day that I find most productive for working on physics. However, I do prefer to tackle complex tasks and experiments in the morning when I am well-rested and have a clear mind. I also find that taking short breaks throughout the day helps me maintain my focus and productivity.
