Physics in high school needed for biochemistry major?
i was interested in majoring in biochemistry and apply at the u of t campus and was wondering if i needed physics in my junior/senior year?
No, but you have to show that you are mathematically competent for a science major which is why people decide to take physics but standard math will be enough. Only the math part of physics applies to biochemistry so it would be better just to stick with math and not have to deal with physics!
Re: Physics in high school needed for biochemistry major?
But I would suggest you take physics and get yourself an A.
Number one, you'll likely need college physics for your bachelor's, they expect some rudimentary knowledge of physics.
Secondly, Newtonian physics is quite wonderful knowledge, and in my experience mostly taught in high school, you'll miss out in college.
Thirdly, biochemists at some point get past kinetics and use tools that require quite a bit of physics like the mass spectrometer.
Fourth, I'd recommend you invest in extra chemistry course in high school (same in college--the course there is analytical chemistry).
