2. A number of changes that you observe are the result of chemical reactions like the rain, the change in the color of leaves, cleaning of any particular material in your house, all involve chemicals.
3. The basic knowledge of chemistry is essential for all; you need to understand certain chemical reactions. When does your packet food expire? What disinfectants and repellents you should use to keep your house hygienic and healthy and so on.
“I never knew that chemistry is applied to so many things in everyday life! I knew that there would be a lot of math involved and just thought that we would be studying science more in depth. Now that I’ve read this, I am more interested in studying chemistry at school.” – Guest Jonathan Liu
Chemistry is important because it helps in exploring things which are unknown to mankind. Chemistry is important because it explains the future behavior of plants and animals and all of us use chemicals directly or indirectly in our daily lives.
We are using chemistry when we cook, when we wash, when we eat, when we get ready, when we play, when we think, as a matter of fact, we always use chemistry. Increasing our knowledge in chemistry is essential if we want to improve our daily lifestyle.
Chemistry is also important for the environment. When you are aware of the harmful effects of the gases like carbon dioxide and methane as a result of the greenhouse effect, you can easily carve out the solutions for the reduction of its effects on the environment. If you possess a minimum knowledge of the importance and use of chemistry you can help in saving the environment to a large extent.
Though chemistry is understood as a complicated and a boring science subject, but chemistry is solely responsible in explaining the world you live in, apart from explaining cooking, cleaning, medicine and environment issues; chemistry is in essence the study of everything.
Understanding the basic chemistry is essential for all, but specializing in chemistry, making a career out of the subject is also interesting. Plenty of chemistry related high paying jobs are available today. All the medical students, physicists, geologists, nutritionists study chemistry.
What is essential to understand is that the importance of chemistry will increase day by day and it is essential to understand the basic chemistry to properly conduct the activities of the daily life.
