    Is that possible?Can I become a plumber without thermodynamics?I'm not so good at this chapter and I want to know if I have a chance to use more math than physics.I really don't know how to solve PV-VT-PT diagrams and that might take some time until I fully understand them.What are your advices?Please don't leave my thread unanswered.I appreciate your help.

    But don't you need some knowledges from thermodynamics(physics) and chemistry?Isn't that the basic requirement?

    I forgot to ask something.How much thermodynamics do you need to know?Do you need the 2nd principle of thermodynamics?I don't know how to start.

    No,I don't have a degree in physics.I'm a highschool student and I wanted to know if you use physics and chemistry in plumbing.I was never a college student.I read somewhere that both of these are required but they didn't specified what chapters they use in plumbing.I'm new in this and I want some clarification.

    Also did you not read the title?It says that I'm not so great at physics.

    TBH basic knowledge of chemistry same with thermal dynamics that's it's, more common sense than anything and willingness to learn

    I started off heating and plumbing and there is money to be made if you work hard. I started by working shifts on the railway and building up my business either side of the early and late shifts days off and 'sick' days. You will get dirty esp if you do drainage, your knees might give out by 50. You might meet really nice and grateful customers and the usual crop of awkward ones - putting it nicely. Do not theorize too much just jump in and get going. Its a young mans game I grew to 20 or so fitters and drifted off into design and product development
