Physics (definitely not biased coz that’s what I study) but in all seriousness I’d probs still say physics. Electronics, communications, applications to medicine e.g radiotherapy, engineering literally most things you use everyday

While it is true that physics is a highly important science, do you not believe that chemistry would be too, as it looks at how certain chemicals react together which is vital for the production of medicines for humans?

Sure but with medicines as your only argument for chem I’d say physics still wins

Haha 😂
Yeah physics does win as it’s the science that governs the laws of the universe.
Well I suppose chemistry does too, the laws of thermodynamics are certainly very important!

I am really confused as I thought you're talking to yourself.

Physics -> Chemistry -> Biology

Well, it is the scientific discipline of the study of matter, motion and how the universe works, so yes it’s got to be the most important!

When you think about it though, without biology we would not be able to cure any diseases or understand how our bodies work, so I suppose all the sciences are just as important tbh

You need an XKCD at this point ......

Who "wins" rather depends on how you define winning.

I'm a physics student, but certainly biological sciences have "contributed more to the world" than the physical sciences. The increased quality of life, life expectancy and eradication of diseases from studying physiology and disease, and food security from studying plant growth and doing things like selective breeding are what helped people in society have the time to develop technology and study the details of fundamental physics, etc...

Also you've forgotten about other sciences like materials science (which directly affects our day-to-day life) and earth sciences/geology.
