    Thats one view.

    Its not the only view. Maths is not Physics.

    New physics nowadys is maths without rigour and physics without experiments.

    yes it is
    No Laith - QM in physics is far more in depth.

    It depends what you mean by 'in depth'.

    ffs laith, quantum physics completely encompasses quantum chemistry but there are many things in 'quantum physics' which chemists wouldn't study.

    Chemistry is far superior to physics. Tell me again, what does the vast majority of quantum physics involve?

    Yes, particles. What field do we study particles in?

    Chemistry.

    let me guess, you just had a lesson in chemistry about particles and assumed they have more to do with chemistry when i think you will find they play a massive role in physical theories.:yep:. Physics is not inferior to chemistry

    exactly, therefore physical theories are based on chemical principals therefore

    yes and chemical priciples are based on physical ones (energy)

    which wouldn't be there without particles (or at least noticable)

    hmm lets see your argument is that because particles is the basis of quantum physics which helps explain the movement of particles which is useful in chemistry so that although chemical is based on physics, chemical principles are better because they are not noticeable without physics

    well...

    chemistry is more useful than physics full stop

    anyway, i love both so

    Quoted from yahoo answers:

    Chemistry is a branch of physics dealing with electrons in atomic bonding, so definitely physics.
    As one famous scientist once remarked, "all you need to understand everything ouside of an atomic nucleus is gravity and quantum electro-dynamics".

    The conclusion is that chemistry, and in particular quantum chemistry, is not a part of physics although it is certainly based on the latter.
