CHEMISTRY Chemistm is the study of matter and its I ro erties both at the macroscopic as well as at the atomic subatomic and molecular levels Chemists seek to understand the composition of matter the changes that matter undergoes as well as the energy associated with these changes Matter is anything that has mass and volume It is the stuff of life Everything around us including us is made up of
