The main three branches of science are physics, chemistry and biology. Each of these branches has further subsections that can be considered individually. To gain a true understanding of scientific matters, all three areas of science should be carefully studied. This is because sub-branches are constantly overlapping. For instance, biochemistry combines elements of both biology and chemistry whilst medical physics looks at both physics and biology.

• Physics

Physics is the study of how matter interacts and how forces affect matter. It has numerous subsections. These include the study of the universe, which covers topics such as planetary motion and the evolution of the universe. Another area is electricity and magnetism; how their fields affect matter within them and what happens when fields overlap. There is also the study of particles, which involves looking inside the atom and investigating how particles move according to their temperature.

• Chemistry

Chemistry involves the study of chemicals and how they react together. It focuses on the structures of various molecules and how these can change. Chemistry can be separated into two key areas: Organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry. Organic chemistry investigates chemical reactions that take place within living things, allowing them to perform functions such as respiration and digestion. Inorganic chemistry looks at chemical reaction in non-living structures, in addition to artificial chemicals made in laboratories.

• Biology

Biology is the area of science that looks at living organisms. It investigates how the human body works, and is therefore of crucial importance in the field of medicine; all aspiring doctors must have necessary qualifications in biology to pursue the career. It also looks at the bodies of animals, which contributes to veterinary science; this is a very complex area as each animal is different and as sophisticated as a human. Plant biology is another area studied; here the structures and reproduction of plants is investigated

At your age you should know that by now
actually when I'm grade 5 I almost know that
we have studied that 4 years ago
you definitely must know that
OK.I know that actually but I'm not going to tell you
study on your own
