Biology is derived from two Greek words, that is, bios which means life and logos or logia which means study or knowledge. Aspects of biological science range from the study of molecular mechanisms in cells, to the classification and behaviour of organisms, how species evolve and the interaction of ecosystems. Biology often overlaps with other related applied and natural sciences such as agriculture, medicine, physics, chemistry, and astronomy. Biology, therefore, refers to the study of life.
Chemistry is all around us. Did you know that everything is made out of chemicals? Any reaction taking place in body cells of all living and non living organisms correlates with chemistry. In chemistry we study materials that make up the earth and universe. Chemistry is sometimes called the central science because it bridges other natural sciences, including physics, geology and biology. Therefore, when talking bout chemistry, we are referring to life on Earth.
