What are 3 activities that a chemist may do?
Chemists learn what gases, solids, and liquids are made of; create synthetic forms of substances found in nature or produce unique and new compounds; create models using computers in order to test theories; and discover the physical properties of substances like boiling points and melting points, strength, elasticity, and electric charge.
To get a job as an entry-level chemist you will need to earn at least a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. If you’re interested in research, a master’s degree or a Ph.D. will help you compete in the job market.
The average annual wage for chemists hovers around $72,740 or $34.97 an hour.
Chemists recently discovered how to replace half the fat in chocolate by substituting juice droplets for much of the sweet treat’s milk fats and cocoa butter. To maintain a chocolatey taste ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and water can be used in place of juice.
