I'd say the writing is harder in humanities since we can't spend several sections talking about how we collected data, what data we collected etc. and we have to be careful with every single word we use.10 pages isnt a whole lot for a science paper what with figures and all that crap in there.but if its only taking 15 hours for you to write a RESEARCH paper im wondering what the hell kind of research was actually senior design project outlined a manned mission to a near earth object. and was reviewed by a NASA board as part of a design competition. so yes..science majors have to be careful with every single word used.

Another essay I wrote was writing about I Am Legend which wasn't hard because I enjoyed the book, I understood the main theme, and I could back it up with evidence. The most I have written in a single sitting was 14 pages double spaced.
I was a neuroscience major and I had a neuro class that required a 15-20 page term paper (I wrote 18 pages IIRC).

A ten page essay can be easy if you put the time and effort in your essay which is true for almost everything out there.
When I wrote my essay for my history class in high school, it was dreadful because it was somewhat last minute and the evidence was shaky when trying to support my thesis which the thesis itself was incredibly difficult to support.
