The study of science is a quest for knowledge, often as opposed to intuition, belief, etc. It is, in fact, systematised knowledge derived from observation, study and experimentation carried on in order to determine the nature or principles of what is being studied. There are many branches of science, each concerned with a
Different branches of science are as given below:
Acoustics: The study of sound (or the science of sound).
Aerodynamics: (i) The branch of mechanics that deals with the motion of air and other gases.
(ii) The study of the motion and control of solid bodies like aircraft, missiles, etc., in air.
Aeronautics: The science or art of flight.
Aeronomy: The study of the Earth’s upper atmosphere, including its composition, density, temperature, and chemical reactions, as recorded by sounding rockets and earth satellites.
Aerostatics: The branch of statics that deals with gases in equilibrium and with gases and bodies in them.
Aetiology: The science of causation.
particular field of study. In each science, measurement plays an important part. In each science, too, a study is made of the laws according to which objects react. The distinction between different branches of science is based on whether a science is pure, or theoretical, or whether it is applied, or practical. The distribution is as follows :

Agrobiology: The science of plant life and plant nutrition.
Agronomy: The science of soil management and the production of field crops.
Agrostology: The study of grasses.
Alchemy: Chemistry in ancient times.
Anatomy: The science dealing with the structure of animals, plants or human body.
Anthropology: The science that deals with the origin as well as the physical and cultural developments of mankind.
Arboriculture: Cultivation of trees and vegetables.
Archaeology: The study of
antiquities.
Astrochemistry: The study of interstellar matter with a view to knowing the origin of the Universe.
