    Ask a physician physicist to build a bridge, it collapse but he knows exactly how and why it collapsed.

    Ask an engineer to do it, it holds but he has no idea how it’s holding together.

      I think the word you’re looking for is physicist. A physician is a medical doctor (as in a person that treats sick people). A physicist is a person that studies physics (as in a person that knows how to solve word problems involving pool tables).

        It’s a classic French speaker mistake because physicist is “physicien” and physician is “médecin”, very different.
