AP Physics B vs. AP Chemistry: Which one is easier?

<p>I just came off of Physics Honors, but right now I'm signed up for AP Chemistry, but I can always switch it if I need to..
I liked Chemistry Honors, but since I haven't done it since I was in 10th grade, I guess I better review. Now I am having doubts..... :( I got good grades in Physics Honors also. Is the class really hard?
I'm pretty even in both subjects. So I'm not sure what to do.
To make things easier.
Which one is easier? AP Physics B or AP Chemistry?</p>

<p>i think AP Physics covers more than Chem. I'd say Chem is easier</p>

<p>Physics B is easier than Chem. Chem is easier than Physics B and Physics C combined.</p>

<p>Agree with Cyanide - Physics B covers a LOT of material, and Physics C is way too much math.</p>

<p>Cyanide.... Your confusing me lol.
You: PB<C C<PB+PC...</p>

<p>Anyone else?</p>

<p>I have always thought phys B to be easier than chem</p>

<p>I've only taken AP Chemistry, and I will take AP Physics B next year. However, I have heard that AP Physics B is easier.</p>

<p>I hope they're both manageable because I will be "self-studying" them both this year. Is it considered self-studying if you're homeschooled? Haha idk...</p>

<p>^lol </p>


<p>physics b and chemistry are both completely different animals. </p>

<p>i'd have to say i think physics b is slightly easier though</p>

<p>It really depends on your school. If your school has a really crappy AP Chem teacher but an awesome AP Physics teacher, then AP Physics will probably feel easier. It also has to do with preference. If you really enjoyed or found yourself very curious about one of the subjects more than the other, you may want to go with that one.</p>

<p>Which covers more information?</p>

<p>Physics B probably covers more material. It's mechanics and electromagnetics but the difference between Physics B and Physics C is physics B has no calculus. I only took AP Chemistry and AP Physics C Mechanics. I'd say chemistry was 100x easier but my physics teacher was horrible and it was my first year in physics, whereas I took a year of chemistry before AP chemistry. But I'd suggest you to take whatever is more interesting for you.</p>

<p>I think you should take AP Chemistry because you liked Chemistry Honors.</p>

<p>If the difficulty of the AP Physics B exam were like the AP Chemistry exam's, I would have received a 5. However, I did not.</p>

<p>AP Chemistry is also more "useful" for college, because many colleges do not accept credit for Physics B since it is not calculus based.</p>

<p>I have taken both this year and I would say AP Chem by FAR</p>

<p>Chemistry is easier than Physics B by a LOT. However, I advise you to take Physics B only because it is a challenging course and you'll feel proud once you get that 5 (the curve for Physics B is very, very generous). </p>

<p>However, if you aren't the analytical/logical type, take Chemistry.</p>

<p>Chemistry is waaaaaaaaaaay easier then physics! No doubt!</p>

<p>@08 I liked Physics Honors too. :P</p>
