Chemistry, a branch of physical science, is the study of the composition, properties and behavior of
Chemistry is concerned with atoms and their interactions with other atoms, and particularly
with the properties of chemical bonds. Chemistry is also concerned with the interactions between atoms
(or groups of atoms) and various forms of energy (e.g. photochemical reactions, changes in phases of
matter, separation of mixtures, properties of polymers, etc.).
Chemistry in Everyday Life
Learn about chemistry as it relates to everyday life. You'll find out how things work, see the humorous
side of science, get ideas for home experiments, and catch the latest chemistry news.
Chemistry is a big part of your everyday life. You find chemistry in daily life in the foods you eat, the air
you breathe, your soap, your emotions and literally every object you can see or touch. Here's a look at
some everyday chemistry.
Chemistry is used to determine the chemical makeup of any molecular structure. By understanding
chemistry, size, texture, colour, etc. can be determined. Chemistry is used to make so many products
that we may not think about, such as the battery in your laptop, that barbecue flavour in your chips, the
salt on you table, etc...
it is actually used in all things like in our kitchen, we use chemistry to make our coffee, juices, our
vouyance and even in cooking because we mix different kinds of mixtures like vinegar, soy sauce, and
sugar in adobo.
How chemistry influences society?
chemistry influences society because without it there would be no plastic, cars, and no us. we need
chemistry in order to live. without some field of chemistry, we would all die.
How chemistry related to other science?
Chemistry is a very important branch in science. It can relate to biology because it composes of all
chemical reactions and thus explain all the reactions in the body, for example it explains how our stomach
acids dissolve food and how we convert it into energy. Chemistry composes of how all the elements
work, of acids and alkalis and their differences, chemical reactions such as combustion (fire) and much
more. I hope that you found this paragraph helpful.
Overview of the 5 Branches of Chemistry
Organic Chemistry - the study of carbon and its compounds; the study of the chemistry of life.
Inorganic Chemistry - the study of compounds not-covered by organic chemistry; the study of
inorganic compounds or compounds which do not contain a C-H bond. Many inorganic
compounds are those which contain metals.
Analytical Chemistry - the study of the chemistry of matter and the development of tools used
to measure properties of matter.
Physical Chemistry - the branch of chemistry that applies physics to the study of chemistry.
Commonly this includes the applications of thermodynamics and quantum mechanics to
Biohemistry - the study of chemical processes that occur inside of living organisms.
