IMPORTANCE OF CHEMISTRY IN OUR DAILY LIFE - PART 2
6. Studying Chemistry Allows You To Better Understand Other Sciences
Just like many other sciences, chemistry incorporates multiple branches, each focusing on a particular aspect of chemistry. Studying chemistry enables you to understand different branches of chemistry, including inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, physical chemistry, environmental chemistry, and many more. Besides, if you ever decide to get a degree in biology or medicine, you will need to take chemistry as a prerequisite. Therefore, studying chemistry not only educates you in that particular field but also prepares you to be more successful in other related courses.
7. Chemistry is at the heart of cooking. If you understand the chemical reactions involved in making baked goods rise or neutralizing acidity or thickening sauces, chances are you'll be a better cook.
8. A command of chemistry can help keep you safe! You'll know which household chemicals are dangerous to keep together or mix and which can be used safely.
9. Chemistry helps people develop strong analytical skills
Like all science, the study of chemistry involves specific skills. Students of chemistry learn to pay close attention to detail, solve problems, analyse data, and communicate verbally and in writing. These are skills easily transferred to other fields beyond the realm of science.
10. Transferable skills
When you study a degree in chemistry, you’ll develop plenty of useful skills. While your programme will be tailored to give you the skills you need for a career in chemistry, the skills you gain will also be useful in non-chemistry related industries. These can include Researching, Critical thinking, Spoken and written English skills, Teamwork, Problem solving, Data analysis.
11. Basic knowledge of chemistry helps you to read and understand product labels.
