Chemistry and without it!

Length: 2 Pages 553 Words

What would the world be like without chemistry? In some way it could be good and in others it would be bad. We would be without so many good and also bad things if we didn’t have it and we can’t leave either one out. I mean without chemistry we wouldn’t be able to have such a good chemistry class, or such a good teacher. The bad things I think I could do without and I think other people could too, but I don’t think I could live without the good which usually includes the bad with it. So now I will explain life without chemistry. Without chemistry we could date our-selves back to the prehistoric ages when man ran around with clubs. The world as we know it now would never exist. The things we love, like driving cars, playing sports, computers, etc., could not be done. All of these past times revolve arou Continue...

But without chemistry, in my opinion life doesn't exist or it doesn't advance at all. For example if we hadn't discovered oil, we wouldn't had cooking gas, house heating oils, gasoline, jet fuel, diesel fuel, plexiglas, explosives, teflon, paints, lubricants, and alcohols. Plastics is another major component of our lives deprived through chemistry. People would have to deal with pain as painkillers would not exist. The pollution to the environment from nuclear radiation would also cause many concerns, but nuclear radiation isn't the only factor that affects our environment. There are so many good things, there are also bad things that are created by chemistry which would be better to live without if chemistry never existed. Chemicals such as chlorine are needed to disinfect our drinking and swimming pool water such which help stay us alive, because without it we would all die from some sort of bacterial disease. At the same time nuclear weapons are a negative side development. For instance nuclear energy can give the world an endless supply of energy. I think to improve life and to live a longer life you will always need chemistry in some way or another. Plague would sweep through countries, death would be a common event. The exhaust from aerosol spray cans, car exhaust, and industrial smoke destroys the ozone layer letting in more UV rays which cause cancer. Nuclear energy, which was one of the biggest discoveries in this century due to chemistry. Without chemistry X rays, CAT scans, and MRI's would never have been invented and the medical aspects of chemistry would be in total disarray.
