How long would it take to get a degree in the military?
Especially a hard science like physics if you are not good at math?

Um, if you are not good at math, you are not going to be able to understand physics.

The thing that limits you is the rate at which you can take classes. You have a full time job plus additional duties. You're working upwards of 40-60 hours a week or more. You aren't allowed to take anything that interferes with your duty schedule and you aren't allowed to take anything at all until you're fully qualified in your job. That can take up to two years. All of that limits you to 1-2 classes per semester and those need to be flexible enough to accommodate a military schedule -- which pretty much means online.
Because of all of that, it is rare to earn a bachelor's of any kind in less than 8-10 years on active duty.

minimum is 8-10 years no matter what your degree. any degree, however, that requires a lot of lab work.. such as Physics.. will take longer.

If you're not good at math, you'll need to get proficient at it before attempting to take on physics. You would pretty much need to know calculus forward and backward before even starting physics, and it doesn't stop there.

If you aren't good at math, then maybe you should look at something other than physics or engineering. My engineering degree required two courses beyond calculus III.
As for how long it takes, that depends on too many things. If you get selected to do ROTC or go to a service academy, it would take 4 years from that point (maybe even less through ROTC if you already have credits). If you enlist with zero credits and are trying to take a class or two a semester at the base ed center, online, or at whatever college might be near your base, it could take you 6-10 years.

i think it would be approximately the same number of years because that would come with some military training and induction as well
