Why understanding physics is a good thing

For some of us, taking the lovely AP-C Physics course was simply to have that shiny passing grade to rub in the face of colleges and use to squeeze out some money from them--a "hey look I'm s-m-r-t!" badge if you will. Nearly everyone in the class thought about it economically when considering taking it; taking it in highschool is FAR cheaper than in college, and allows more focus on new materials, maybe it'll draw some scholarships, help get a job ect. But physics goes beyond that. Here's a list of some majors requiring a noteworthy amount of physics:

Acoustics

Aeronautical Engineer

Agricultural Engineer

Air Traffic Controller

Airline Pilot

Archaeologist

Architect

Astronomer

Audio Engineer

Broadcasting

Cartographer

Chartered Surveyor

Civil Engineer

Climatologist

Clinical Scientist

Computing

Designer

Doctor

Electrical Engineer

Energy

Engineering

Environment

Environmental Scientist

Forensic Scientist

Gas Engineer

Geologist

Health Services

Journalist

Laboratory Technician

Marine Engineering

Mathematician

Mechanical Engineer

Medical Physicist

Meteorologist

Naval Architect

Naval Career

Nuclear Scientist

Oceanographer

Operational Research

Patent Agent

Patent Examiner

Pharmacist

Radiation Protection

Radiographer

Scientific Officer (Government)

Space and Remote Sensing

Teacher

Transport

Water Management

And here's a list of some of the best paying careers:

1. Doctors/surgeons

2. Orthodontists/dentists

3. Cheif executive officer

4. Petroleum engineer

5. Lawyer

6. Architectural and engineer manigers

7. Natural science manager

8. Marketing manager

9. Computer info. systems manager

10. Industrial-organizational psychologist

11. Financial manager

12. Airline pilots, co-pilots and flight engineers

13. Sales manager

14. Air traffic controller

15. Pharmacist

Note the frequent overlaps? That's because physics is essential in a world of technological dependency and progression. So not only will physics save you money now, but it could very potentially make you plenty in the future!
