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.

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.

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

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.

"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.

Engineers apply physics. They are not doing physics though.

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
