IMPORTANCE OF STUDYING CHEMISTRY - PART 2
4. Creative thinking
a great chemist, you need to think creatively, and see complex problems from a
different perspective. You can use your creativity and ingenuity to make
improvements or produce valuable research.
5. Chemistry is Everywhere
matter where you are, chemistry is around you. Every day, it affects what we
see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. Learning chemistry will reveal a whole new
understanding of how our world works. Anything that has matter breaks
down into chemical building blocks. If chemistry did not exist, we wouldn’t
understand why leaves change colour in the fall, producing and preserving food,
and so on. And there's always some chemical reaction that affects us in one way
or another. It is safe to say the world would be a more mysterious place
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.
