History of Chemistry

Good Essays
Chemistry is involved in almost everything that we do. Anything involved in changing matter is Chemistry. Chemistry crosses over into a couple things such as, Biology and technology. Without Chemistry we would not be nearly as advanced as we are in technology today. Chemistry has been around for a very long time it has a ton of history. There are many different stages Chemistry history.
Chemistry crosses over to Biology in many different ways. Without Chemistry Biology would not be the same as it is today. Biology is the study of living organisms and Chemistry is the study of the chemical composition and properties of matter and the reactions of that matter. Everything living has multiple chemical reactions going on in their body at all times. Such as when you eat something, your body’s stomach acid breaks the food down; this is an example of a chemical reaction-taking place in a living organism. This is just one of the ways Chemistry crosses over into Biology. Even when you take a drink of water that has something to do with Chemistry. Water is a compound made up of hydrogen and oxygen. This crosses over into Biology because without water you wouldn’t be able to live. Biotechnology is basically Biology and Chemistry mixed. Biotechnology is when you use living things and make them into things that benefit humans. Humans have used biotechnology for thousand of uses such as agriculture, food production, and medicine. Biotechnology has expanded to include new and diverse sciences such as genomics, recombinant gene technologies, development of pharmaceutical therapies, and diagnostic tests.

...f elements into compounds nothing we have would run we would have no electricity. Chemistry even crosses over into our weapons without chemistry none of our weapons would be able be fire. They fire because of two compounds coming into contact and making a small explosion with launches the bullet. Everything that has to do with weapons has something to do with Chemistry.
Chemistry as you can see has a lot of history. It also has a very lot to do with everything we do. Any sort of technology we have has to do with Chemistry. Biology also crosses over into Chemistry as I explained above. Chemistry is part of our world every day. Everything we have is made of many elements being put together to form other things. If you could break something down all the way it would eventually come out to the elements that it is made up of. Chemistry is involved in everything we do.
