What is Chemistry?Chemistry: the science that seeks to understand the properties of matterby studying the structure of the particles that compose it.Matter: anything that occupies space and has mass Macroscale:what we can see (observe)BUT: Matter is particulate. The basic particles that compose ordinary matter are called atoms Nanoscale: what is happening on the molecular level?Bojan Chem 110: Introduction 7Goal this semester: How does the behavior of atoms and molecules connect to the behavior of matter that we observe? Chemistry: the molecular scienceMacroscale:what we can see (observe)? Are they the same? Bojan Chem 110: Introduction 83 balloons: what is in the balloons? What do you observe? Nanoscale: What is happening on the molecular level? What is in each balloon? We do experiments that transform matter to learn about the connection between the properties and the structure of molecules.
