About course: Geneal science refers to the core subjects of science and not a specialized or applied study of a specific area of discipline of science. According to Wikipedia, basic science is development and establishment of infrastructure to aid understanding the prediction and explanation of phenomena in the natural world. The discipline of basic science is also referred to as pure science or fundamental science. The sub disciplines for basic sciences are Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology. There are ample scopes of research in the basic science subjects.
Physics is a part of natural science which involves the study of matter and its motion through space and time along with the concepts of energy and force. In a broader term, it is the general analysis of nature which studies the behaviour of the universe.
Chemistry is the study of composition, properties and behaviour of matter. The subject also studies atoms and their interactions with other atoms and the properties of chemical bonds. Chemistry is also known as ‘the central science’ because it bridges other natural sciences like physics, geology and biology with each other.
In simple terms, Mathematics is the science of numbers. It studies the quantity, structure, space, change and other properties. Mathematics was developed from counting, calculation, measurement, and the systematic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects.
Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy.
