is physics 90% math? or 100% math? or 50% math?

and what is the remaining percentage (unless you say it's 100% math) ?

i could only come up with quantum physics (possibly) which i guess is statistics and probability... but that's also math, isn't it?

to me it seems like physics is 100% math + real world situations. essentially applied mathematics.

quick help me so i can win this debate vs my gf.

Physics is 0% math.

Applying math is not doing math. Physics is 100% physics and nothing more.

... you are an idiot. that's okay though, i'll just wait for the next anon to pop by.

>applying math is not doing math

Then what the fuck do we need math for, anon?

>>

>>7781784

Oh, you were talking about undergrad problems and not real research in the field.

In that case let me rephrase.

What you're doing is 0% math and 0% physics.

Have a nice day.

You guessed wrong. Please educate yourself.

>we r smrt physicists!!! xD

Yeah man, it's totally "100% math"

>>

>>7781779

Even a low IQ pleb like Feynman succeeded in physics. In math he wouldn't have had a chance.

There's no 'right' direction of curent flow u fucktard, if i want to represent a moving car with a backwards arrow I can and it doesn't change shit

Nice tautology senpai.

holy fuck you guys are just as bad as any other board. haha. go figure.

thanks for trying, lova ya all.

fucking weirdass neet manchildren lmao.

Best thread of /sci/ so far in 2016, where do I go to nominate it?

"Physics employs mathematical models and abstractions of physical objects and systems to rationalize, explain and predict natural phenomena."

The explanation/intuition bit is where the physics lie by itself; mathematics is just used as a tool; which is used for all of the other sciences. Yeah, I'd have to agree with you. Physics is at its own realm; just as with mathematics is with at its self.

Mathematical Physics concentrate on the mathematical methods that are used in physics. e.g. vectors, topology, geometry, calculus based stats/prob, ..., etc.

Once that bit of mathematics is conceptualized it goes through the "ontology" process which helps create physics. Yes, there were times that using mathematics that alone had made discoveries in Physics. e.g. Some geometric tensors created areas in relativity, ..., etc.

To answer OP's question.

I'd say physics composes of 100% ontology (conception, intuition, and understanding of phenomena's). Physic is just a natural science like chemistry and biology. Hence, physic doesn't fall under mathematics, only by itself, and the natural sciences; which to deciphers/describes nature; which really what it is meant to be.

>>7781779

Physics is:

10% luck

20% skill

15% concentrated power of will

5% pleasure

and 50% pain

On a serious note though, studying physics is 50% math, 15% intuiting the universe, 15% redoing overdone experiments to teach method and 10% programming and 10% report writing (in my experience anyway).

Research post grad is different obviously but I have no experience there

The only reason Feynman's IQ was lower than one would expect was because he didn't give a fuck about the language parts. His analytical testresults were top notch.

>>

math is a language, physics is poetry.

certain parts of physics were discovered purely through math.. other parts were discovered experimentally (or from nature) and translated into the language of math after. plenty of math was discovered this way as well.

I'm glad you have a girlfriend anon, but the relationship between math and physics is and has been debatable for a long time. you're not gonna get a concrete result from this thread.

>>

>>7781779

physics is just applied math

chemistry is just applied physics

biology is just applied chemistry

sex is just applied biology

therefore, sex is a subset of math
