planning to study chemical engineering in uni next year. Physics for me is doable, I've never failed at it but I do find it the most boring science amongst chem and bio. Just wanted a quick idea of how hard the physics involved in chemical engineering is

If you find chemistry boring why are you doing chemical engineering and not something like aero, electrical or mech eng? I've also read posts here that chemical engineering is not what many people expect it to be in terms of how much chemistry content it has.

EDIT: Ignore, I made a mistake.

I think he means Physics is the most boring for him, out of the three sciences.

Hi

I'm a fourth year chemical engineer at the University of Birmingham. Chem eng does involve some physics such as fluid mechanics and heat and mass transfer. However I'd say the physics is in a very different context to at school, it's alot more practical and applied. Saying that though chemical engineering, despite the name involves more physics than chemistry.

If you'd like to find out more I'd check out whynotchemeng online or university open days are a great way to find out more.


Thanks

Harry
