    When I was doing my A Levels, I was really excited for the A2 astrophysics topics. I still love astrophysics, and I even did some research last year into modelling neutron stars. However I think particle physics was a really interesting topic at A level.

    I'm interested to hear what everyone else enjoys!

    Well there's particle physics, which I just think is so cool! It's amazing how things on a scale of grandeur to stem from something so tiny. (Ever heard of Quantum Entanglement)?

    Even though I might be a bit rusty on my skills with mechanics, I still really like that topic. The way it applies to real life in so many different scenarios, just sort of changes your mind set on how things work in a way.

    There's just so many other things in physics to discover :woo:

    This is so true. That's what makes maths and physics so interesting - there's always something new to learn about!

    Right down the other end of the size spectrum. The quantum world.



    This is a simulation image of water on a perovskite surface. I just think it's so awesome how the hydroxide ion ends up orbiting the hydrogen nucleus that's attached itself to the material's surface, it's like the precession of nuclei in NMR! :ahee:

    This isn't my favorite thing though, I don't actually have a favorite. I love the whole quantum world!

    I should probably add that saying anything negative about any area of physics is a crime, they're all good!

    Indeed so! You'd learn one topic and then when you research it further you realise there's just a whole lot more that it leads to. :moon:

    One can't say enough negative stuff on Condensed Matter physics

    On-topic: Hydrodynamics and fluid physics generally is EXTREMELY fun to do.

    YES! IKR! It's so amazing how wonderfully complex the quantum world is, with such a limited number of fundamental particles you get all the elements and atomic structures and everything they create.

    Can't argue with that though.

    YES! Exactly that! It's just wonderfully strange about how everything just pieces itself together.

    :teeth: I love the buzz reading physics! I'm just thinking ''how?'' and ''why?'' (the particles in the experiment behave that way) :rofl:

    Found astrophysics hard but interesting, did a "related" EPQ title.

    Ikr! It's that confusion, the way the macroscopic world is so predictable and then the minute you start dealing with atoms they decide to muck you around. The atoms, their structures and all the particles that make the atoms, they're all just so devious! It's one of the reasons why I love them so much!
