About the subject Chemistry

Chemistry is a challenging subject for many people, but it doesn't have to be. The main reason people struggle with chemistry is that they don’t approach learning it the right way. The trick is to review and study material before attending a learning session.

Make good notes, practice daily. If you are able make the most of lab time, use flashcards, join study groups and break large tasks into smaller ones.

What are the basics in Chemistry?

The following topic areas are the most basic concepts that a successful chemistry student needs to master:

  • Chemical nomenclature 
  • Atomic structure
  • The periodic table
  • Lewis structure
  • Chemical reactions
  • Stoichiometry (the calculation of reactants and products in chemical reactions)
  • Acid-base chemistry.

Then there are the sub-divisions:

Organic, analytical, physical, inorganic and biochemistry.

Is it important to learn Chemistry?

Chemistry is important because everything you do involves chemistry. Even your body is made of chemicals and chemical reactions occur when you breathe, eat, or just sit there reading. Taking part in physical activities involves all manner of chemical activity. As does falling in love!

All matter is made of chemicals, so the importance of chemistry is that it's the study of everything.

What is the hardest type of Chemistry?

Well, this is debatable especially if your tutor is keen on a particular area.

Organic Chemistry: Somewhat unsurprisingly organic chemistry is seen as the hardest college course but, like all the others, discipline requires a strong commitment to consistent and serious studying. Not only is there a lot of memorising needed, but there is also a lot of homework. You will have to rely on your intuition on occasion and generalise from specific examples.

Next has to be Quantum Physics/Mechanics: This requires a serious ability with mathematics. It also requires the memorising of many formulae, which you must then be able to apply to real-life problems.

Quantum physics/mechanics deals with very small particles like atoms and subatomic particles and how they work. It’s generally a case of you either get it or you don’t.

Calculus: Now there’s a word that sends shivers to many. Calculus is, according to Wikipedia, “… the mathematical study of continuous change, in the same way that geometry is the study of shape and algebra is the study of generalisations of arithmetic operations.”

Human Anatomy: This deals with the structure of the human body and the parts that make up that structure like bones, muscles, tissues, organs, and the way they interact or function together. You will need to know all the names, both the common and scientific, of all those parts of the human body and the uses of each.

Then there is Thermodynamics: Physics that deals with the mechanical action or relations of heat.

All in all, chemistry plays a role in almost every action on earth and in everything we touch. It's the study of substances, and their composition, structure, and properties. Chemical scientists are leading research on the world’s most pressing concerns, including challenges around human health, climate change, and energy.
