Question:

Answers:Im not sure of which 5 your looking for. Its kind of a broad question because there is a lot more to science then any 5 categories. There are 3 major branches including: physical sciences (physics, chemistry), life science (biology) and earth sciences (geology). Each of these have plenty of sub-categories and even overlap in many instances like geology and chemistry - geochemistry. Look at this site for more info. Hope this helped.

Question:the instruction is make a conceptual map of chemistry (no need) as a science. Show the relationships of the different major branches. connect the sub-branches appropriately. SO here is what i need you to do im sorry but our book is very hard to understand. just group the sub branches under the main branches in case it belongs to 2 major branches write it in both for example Oganic medical pathological Biochemistry medical clinical The 5 branches are Analytical, Physiscal, Organic, Inorganic, Biochemistry the subbranches are Electrochemistry Engineering Chemistry Photochemistry Medical Chemistry pathological chemistry clinical chemistry pharmaceutical chemistry Fermentation Astrochemistry POlymer chemistry Geochemistry Enviromental chemistry by this your best answer will get 5 points by this you had helped a third year high school student i need it within 8 hours

Answers:This question saddens me. it is an attempt to put things into boxes that don't really fit in boxes. Photochemistry, for example, is based on spectroscopy (physical) but is used to study the reactions of both organic and inorganic systems, and photosynthesis which is a special case of photochemistry links directly to biochemistry. I actually feel very strongly that the question you have been given is anti-educational. I accept e-mail, and will be happy to explain this to your teachers, and to disclose to them the qualifications I have that makes me entitled to say this. I don't think this is what you wanted to hear, but it's how it is.

Question:Identify the branch of chemistry which would be most closely connected with the following: A. analytical chemistry B. biochemistry C. inorganic chemistry D. nuclear chemistry E. organic chemistry F. physical chemistry 1. air pollution 2. medical research 3. properties of tin 4. radioisotopes 5. refigeration 6. synthesis of rubber I got, 1: A, 2: B, 3: C, 4:D, 5:F, and 6:E. I'm not sure if they're right though. Thanks for your help!

Answers:Well, they all involve one another but: 1.a 2.b 3.c 4.d 5.f 6.e So I would agree, but physical chemistry is also arguable air pollution as well due to reactive rates of ozone depletion.

Question:1.the study of shells 2.study of man 3. study of mollusks 4. study of pre-historic life forms 5.study of marine organism 6.study of fresh water organism 7.study of mechanisms of defense against disease 8.study of organismthat live and subsist on or in other living organisms those are the definitions what branches of biology are they? i'm also a 2nd year highschool student in the philippines but i'm looking for the bracnch that contains this info\definitions

Answers:Hmmm...and your question is? The branches are: Agriculture - study of producing crops from the land, with an emphasis on practical applications Anatomy - the study of the animal form, with an emphasis on human bodies Biochemistry - the study of the chemical reactions required for life to exist and function, usually a focus on the cellular level Bioengineering - the study of biology through the means of engineering with an emphasis on applied knowledge and especially related to biotechnology. Bioinformatics - also classified as a branch of information technology (IT) it is the study, collection, and storage of genomic data Biomathematics or Mathematical Biology - the study of biological processes through mathematics, with an emphasis on modeling. Biomechanics - often considered a branch of medicine, the study of the mechanics of living beings, with an emphasis on applied use through artificial limbs, etc. Biophysics - the study of biological processes through physics, by applying the theories and methods traditionally used in the physical sciences Biotechnology - a new and sometimes controversial branch of biology that studies the manipulation of living matter, including genetic modification Botany - the study of plants Cell Biology - the study of the cell as a complete unit, and the molecular and chemical interactions that occur within a living cell. Conservation Biology - the study of the preservation, protection, or restoration of the natural environment, natural ecosystems, vegetation, and wildlife Cryobiology - the study of the effects of lower than normally preferred temperatures on living beings. Developmental Biology - the study of the processes through which an organism develops, from zygote to full structure. Ecology - the study of the ecosystem as a complete unit, with an emphasis on how species and groups of species interact with other living beings and non-living elements. Entomology - the study of insects Environmental Biology - the study of the natural world, as a whole or in a particular area, especially as affected by human activity Epidemiology - a major component of public health research, it is the study of factors affecting the health and illness of populations Ethology - the study of animal behavior. Evolution or Evolutionary Biology - the study of the origin and decent of species over time Genetics - the study of genes and heredity. Herpetology - the study of reptiles (and amphibians?) Histology - The study of cells and tissue, a microscopic branch of anatomy. Ichthyology - the study of fish Macrobiology - the study of biology on the level of the macroscopic individual (plant, animal, or other living being) as a complete unit. Mammology - the study of mammals Marine Biology - the study of ocean ecosystems, plants, animals, and other living beings. Medicine - the study of the human body in health and disease, with allopathic medicine focusing on alleviating or curing the body from states of disease Microbiology - the study of microscopic organisms (microorganisms) and their interactions with other living things Molecular Biology - the study of biology and biological functions at the molecular level, some cross over with biochemistry Mycology - the study of fungi Neurobiology - the study of the nervous system, including anatomy, physiology, even pathology Oceanography - the study of the ocean, including ocean life, environment, geography, weather, and other aspects influencing the ocean. See Marine Biology Ornithology - the study of birds Paleontology - the study of fossils and sometimes geographic evidence of prehistoric life Pathobiology or pathology - the study of diseases, and the causes, processes, nature, and development of disease Parisitology - the study of parasites and parasitism Pharmacology - the study and practical application of preparation, use, and effects of drugs and synthetic medicines. Physiology - the study of the functioning of living organisms and the organs and parts of living organisms Phytopathology - the study of plant diseases Pre-medicine - a college major that covers the general aspects of biology as well as specific classes relevant to the study of medicine Virology - the study of viruses and some other virus-like agents, usually considered part of microbiology or pathology Zoology - the study of animals and animal life, including classification, physiology, development, and behavior (See also Entomology, Ethology, Herpetology, Ichthyology, Mammology, Ornithology Hope that answered your question...whatever it was.
