## Is Physics 1 with Calc hard?

Table of Contents

No, Physics is definitely harder than calculus. Calculus is actually a pretty easy subject in my opinion.

## Is Calc 3 used in physics?

If you’re going to take Calculus 3 before Physics 2 anyway, it would probably help a little, but most of the material in Calculus 3 will be way above the level needed for Physics 2. I certainly wouldn’t postpone Physics 2 just so you can take Calculus 3 beforehand.

**Do you need Calc for Physics 1?**

Most universities will have you take Calculus 1 and Physics 1 at the same time. A lot of the math in Physics 1 is algebra based, but there is some calculus mixed in. If you want to get a good idea of the kind of equations you will see, check out the Ideal Physics app on the Google Play Store.

**Is Calc 3 math hardest?**

In a poll of 140 past and present calculus students, the overwhelming consensus (72% of pollers) is that Calculus 3 is indeed the hardest Calculus class. This is contrary to the popular belief that Calculus 2 is the hardest Calculus class. So, Calculus 3 is the hardest Calculus class.

### Which is harder Physics 1 or 2?

Physics 2 is certainly harder than physics 1 because it is more abstract, has more irregular calculations, and has more challenging topics. Physics 1 is easier because it has topics that are easier to visualize and we are more familiar with.

### Is Physics 1 or chem 1 harder?

Physics is more mathy while chem has alot of rote memorization. What is easier depends on what you will find more interesting therefore it’ll be easier to work harder.

**Do I have to take Calc 3?**

Any major that requires Calculus 3, of course! Yes, it’s a tautology, but it’s valid. Each college (within a university) or department offering a major makes their own decisions about requirements.

**Do you need Calc 2 for Calc 3?**

Are you ready for Calculus 3? Most importantly, Calc 3 encompasses limits, derivatives, and integrals so all of these concepts that you previously learned in Calc 1 and Calc 2. So that means you already have all the math skills necessary to succeed.

#### Can I take calculus 1 and Physics 1 at the same time?

It seems schools have different structures for their physics and math classes in the intro years. At my school, most students take calc 1 and physics 1 at the same time. But in your specific case, we may not be able to help you, talk to your physics professor. Unless you are taking an honors version you should be fine.

#### How hard is physics 1 in College?

In general, coursework at the college level is designed to be challenging. Physics is certainly no exception. In fact, physics is considered by most people to be among the most challenging courses you can take. One of the reasons physics is so hard is that it involves a lot of math.
