Hello all, do you believe that everyone has the same ability to learn and understand something? I'm trying to learn physics at home in my own time using books and the internet. Sure I can read about quantum mechanics or relativity and understand what I'm reading but there is a difference between understand what something is saying and understanding why something is the way it is. I genuinely don't belive that my brain is capable of learning the equations involved with physics and learning to use these equations to solve problems. For example if one of you guys ends up descovering something new in the lab, you'll need to form an equation to describe what is happening. I am not a university student or anything and my experience in math and physics is extremely basic, I haven't even learnt calculus yet... bottom line is I just think I'm not smart enough, my brain simply isn't capable of truely understanding physics.
