So what is there to love about chemistry? Lets find out.
What is chemistry?
What is their to love about chemistry?
Nature and colour
Look around you; see how the leaves change colour throughout the year; how snow brings with it a sense of homeliness. All these events have chemistry written deep within the atoms involved, from the changes of colours to the emotions that incur in us when witnessing them. Of course this may be different from person to person as the chemicals involved are changing all the time.
However, there is the prospect of that something different that we have in all of us which probably even chemistry cannot answer.
We have all been there, you are starving and for some reason you will not be eating until later and then it hits; the smell of next doors fresh bacon or the freshly cooked home-made bread at the bakery. Our mouths are then ravaged by saliva, you take a deep breath in almost to savour the smell and then think to yourself in four simple words: 'wow that smells good!'
Yes, it's a tricky one; surely there is more to love than chemicals, which we can begin to answer at another time; however, these emotions are touched upon via chemical changes which have an impact on our bodies such as a racing heart beat or 'butterflies' in the stomach.
Chemistry as a whole
There is more to chemistry than the chemistry you may or may not remember at school; the working out of chemical equations and long written words which could easily confuse the best of us.
Chemistry is all around us and if you do take a minute to just think about how the colour of a leaf changes or why the smell of freshly baked bread has a positive effect on us (or negative) it is the atoms involved and the chemical changes that give us the emotions and expressions we face everyday of our lives.
