Science is such a wide area that it is divided into branches. Biology, chemistry and geology are three of these branches. Each branch of science are very different. They use many of the same techniques in the study of the materials in their area of science, but are very different materials.
Biology is the study of life and living things. The French naturalist, Jean Baptiste, introduced the term, biology, in Germany during the 1800’s. Biology is also divided into branches. Zoology, botany and anatomy are three of the major branches. Biology studies the life of particular species and their behavior, development and history. What makes biology different from the other branches of science is that it studies living things.
Chemistry is the branch of science dealing with the pr
The focus of applied geology is to search for useful minerals, stable environments for human constructions and identify natural hazards. Organic chemistry is the only branch of chemistry defined as the study of substances produced by living organisms. They each involve the research of very different materials present here on Earth. Physical chemistry is concerned with the physical properties of materials. Geological observations have been made since ancient times. As you can see, these three branches of science are very different. operties, composition and structure of substances and the changes they undergo when they combine or react under specific conditions. By studying the reactions in different environments, all branches of science have been able to develop the resources found on Earth to improve the status of living in society today. Chemistry deals mainly with components of material origin. Geology encompasses the study of the Earth"tms landforms and it"tms surface features but is also concerned with the structure and inner parts of the planet. From the earliest recorded times, humans have observed chemical changes and have speculated at their possible causes. They seek to come to the best understanding of the possibilities that each offer to the human race. The branches of geology are divided between the study of the Earth"tms landforms, petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, structural geology and paleontology.
