What is Chemistry?
Chemistry is concerned with the properties, composition and structure of matter and the changes that matter undergoes. These changes are seen as chemical reactions. Matter is the physical material of the universe. Chemistry is both a practical and a theoretical science since solutions to theoretical questions often lead to far reaching practical consequences
