In summary, a physics problem is considered interesting when it challenges our understanding of the world and has real-world applications. To improve problem-solving skills, one should practice and seek guidance from experts. Multiple solutions are possible for a physics problem, but they should all be logically and mathematically correct. Physics concepts can be applied to real-life situations by understanding principles and laws. When stuck on a problem, it is helpful to review information, create diagrams or equations, and ask for help from others.

In physics pedagogy, the routine is to introduce new material in lectures and then practice the material in end-of-chapter problems. This problem, shown below, familiar to many of us on PF, is my favorite. One must get to intermediate mechanics class in undergraduate physics studies to finally see it, and once the mathematical steps are mastered, one may find the knowledge gained most satisfying. At least, that’s my experience:
