Courses Physics branches

  1. Mar 24, 2016 #1
    I have to study a little of all that before undergrad anyone can help me and put it from the easiest one to the harder ? so i can study them in turn :
    -classical mechanics
    -quantum mechanics
    -particle physics
    -high energy physics
    -atomic molecular and optical physics
    -theorical physics
    And if you can put them into groups of the same subject from the easiest to the harder one so i can study them in turn by groups

    Why would you have to study any of these before undergrad?

    i like to have a general idea about physics branches before i can determine one to get a phd in it . so if you can help me please to start group them by subject from the easiest to the harder branch

    I'd recommend just looking at the wikipedia page for each of them if you're interested in just finding out what they are. And you have several years before you need to worry about which one to 'get a phd' in, as you will be exposed to all of them by the time you finish your b.s. in physics.

    i cheked wikipedia . In fact i like all these branches and i want to start studying a little bit of each one but i want to know the easiests ones and hardest's to start learning them by turn

    What's your level of education?
  8. Mar 24, 2016 #7
    finished high school

    Alright well if you're so dead set on getting ahead in physics, learn calculus and classical mechanics first. Then worry about the rest

    i have learned classical mechanics but i want to know what next that

    Okay, basic E&M. Electric fields, magnetic fields, circuits, Gauss' Law, Faraday's Law, etc

    Just follow your college's curriculum.

    Look at the curricula of the college(s) you plan on enrolling in and follow them.
