    subdivision/branch/sub-group/sub-field

    Hello,

    Which one is correct and idiomatic to use? What are other alternatives to use in the following sentence?

    "Fluid Mechanics is a subdivision/branch/sub-group/sub-field of physics"

    Thanks.

    I am not a teacher.

    I would use 'branch'.
