What is chemistry?

Chemistry is the part of science that deals with the physical and chemical properties, composition, and structure of matter (substance, element, or atom) and interacts with energy.

What is chemistry in science education?

In this category, we study different types of basic topics related to physical or chemical properties, facts, laws, and structures of atoms made by naturally or artificially occurring matter.
