Chemistry is the science of matter and the changes effected by it. The science of matter is also a part of the discipline of Physics, but while Physics is more practical and applies a fundamental approach, Chemistry is more specialized, and is concerned with the composition, behavior, structure, and properties of matter. It is also about the changes matter undergoes during chemical reactions.
