Inorganic chemistry, organic and physical chemistry are rated in ascending order for the difficulty of the subjects even by students who take up premedical groups. Why then is a subject difficult? In physics, even in a topic like Newton's laws of motion, the possibilities of making problems combining various topics can be very large. However in physical chemistry, the questions are straight forward. It is the difficulty of calculations, even without the twists and turns as it is given in physics, that makes physical chemistry tough. The basic problem is the handicap of not having taken mathematics as a subject.
