    Not at all. I love what I do and don't ever plan on retiring. It does get much harder as you learn more interesting things though, as you can imagine there's lots of pretty scary looking maths you need to master while studying things like quantum physics. Personally I enjoy such challenges, but if you're not truly passionate about physics it can get overwhelming quite quickly.

    One thing I would say is that when trying to figure out how a system works, it's important to consider it in terms of it's parts. So for instance, when investigating pressure think in terms of the individual atoms and/or molecules in the container. Likewise, when looking at friction if you consider the attractive forces between the atoms/molecules in the two surfaces you can see what's causing the phenomenon. Just some advice to help you along.

    I think you'd enjoy these channels and you can learn a lot of cool things from them too:

    Not many actual, paid physicists hang out in the GCSE forum, so I'll move your thread somewhere else.
