Why is knowledge of chemistry important to biology Maier Scott Advanced biology 10799 Biology is the study of all living things and chemistry is the study of chemicals and their interactions So how are they related Our bodies are made up of hundreds and hundreds of chemicals We just dont think of them like that Did you ever wonder how your body turns food into energy Its a chemical reaction Thats chemistry involved in biology Our bodies have hundreds more chemical reactions A chemical reaction is one chemicals response when exposed to another Two very similar chemicals can have very opposite reactions when exposed to the same thing so nothing in chemistry is assumed It all is taken down on paper through hypotheses and conclusions Also chemistry is involved with atoms of different elements combining to make a substance If an atom of something has 2 electrons in its first shell and 6 in its second shell and another atom has 2 and 10 then it could combine to make a substance You can think of biology as the study of the larger parts of living things Chemistry is the study of what makes up all living things hundreds of working parts combined in a single unit smaller than most microscopes will focus Chemistry studies how the different chemicals in your body react to make you react to things the way you do such as digesting food or using glucose in your brain It studies what elements combine with what other elements to make your body function like it does instead of like another animal If people didnt study chemistry then biology would only go so far because you cant find out much about a living thing if you only know how something works and not why If a living thing thinks digests or breathes then theyre using a chemical reaction such as assimilating food
