Chemistry may at first seem a little overwhelming and complex, but by the time you will understand some of the basics, it won’t be long till you’ll have some fun in experimenting and get more and more understanding of the world of the chemistry.
Chemistry studies the world of Matter & Energy. Chemistry is, just as physics, a physical science and it researches and explores structures of energy and matter, and in what way these two are interacting. The fundamental building blocks of all matter are atoms. These atoms are joining together and by doing so they form molecules. Chemistry studies how, and to what extend, atoms and molecules may interact again to form, via chemical reactions, new and possibly innovative, products.
Chemistry is used and applied in numerous fields. You can see chemistry in all sorts of science and medicine, and the field of chemistry is studied by biologists, engineers, and physicists. Chemistry is all around us and plays an important role in all study curricula of pharmacists, dentists, doctors, physical therapists, veterinarians, and nurses. Chemistry plays also an important role in (the development of) appliances and everyday goods and food. Fire fighters need to know about chemistry, and so do chefs, plumbers, truck drivers, hairdressers, chefs, and so on.
Often, chemists are working in labs, or in some other research setting, experimenting with chemical elements, testing hypotheses, or asking questions regarding their scientific work. Some other chemists may be working on computer-based development theories, or study scientific models that are often set up to predict chemical reactions. We can also see chemists that are active in field work, and some others again teach or are employed in the insurance world. So you see, if you are interested in chemistry, your career options are pretty extensive.
