Chemistry

Chemistry is the science that deals with the properties of organic and inorganic substances and their interactions with other organic and inorganic substances.

In the study of matter, chemistry also investigates the movement of electrons.

Because of the diversity of matter, which is mostly composed of different combinations of atoms, chemists often study how atoms of different chemical elements interact to form molecules and how molecules interact with each other.
