Both are pretty bad but your question was either or so I picked emotional.
Some guys cheat physically on the regular because hey don’t actually care about the girl they are with emotionally. That makes it clear the relationship needs to end.
Some cheat on someone they truly care about with someone they don’t and it really eats them up. Still bad.
But cheating emotionally on someone you have an emotional connection with is the worst. It usually involves some sort of sexual act or talk.
Emotional cheating is the worst because they cheater feels there is nothing to confess leaving the other person left feeling gaslighted.
Saying there is nothing between you and a secret sex buddy that you may not be having sex with but that isn’t out of your life. Be honest.
Or a friend that they start dating as soon as you break up.
I learned my way out of dating those guys for long. Second to your kids I need to be number one if we are going to be a team.

Physically is worse. Why? Because someone could cheat emotionally and realise their mistake and end it without there actually have been any damage done. Whereas cheating physically only needs to happen once to completely destroy any chances of your relationship resuming.
If my partner emotionally cheated but said it was over, i could probably forgive them. If they physically cheated but said it was over, I wouldn't be able to forgive them.
