Chemistry is everywhere. Everything you see, hear, smell, taste, and touch involves chemistry and chemicals (matter). And seeing, hearing, tasting, and touching all involve an incredibly complex series of chemical reactions and interactions in your body.
Because Chemistry is all around us, it is essential to know about chemistry in order to understand the world and attempt, in some cases, to change it for the better. The study of Chemistry also opens many doors. It is a requirement for a lot of Science courses at University, such as Medicine, Biochemistry, Veterinary Medicine and many more.
