Chemistry is the branch of science that studies the nature of matter. That means that a chemist studies what stuff is, what it does, and why it does what it does.
Chemistry is often referred to as the central science because it bridges other natural sciences together like physics, geology and biology. There are four traditional fields of chemistry: organic, inorganic, physical, and analytical.
