Science is supposed to be research and/or study of the world around us. The supposition is that the more we understand about the world around us we will be able to come …up with new ideas about how to use the things that make up the world. On the other hand, technology is the "How-to" get those ideas up and running. I guess we have passed the stage of saying this is new technology if you come up with a new way of making a pan or saddle. Technology now days has to do with electronic gadgets that allow someone to take control of certain items in the world. I hope this helps as a start. Michael U.
Science is purely learning more about something and researching it. Technology is the same except that the motivation is to use that knowledge to make something beneficial. If… I discovered a new element and decide to study it because I just want to, that is science. If I am trying to figure out a way to cure cancer with this new element, that is technology.
The purpose of science is different from technology because science seeks to explain things while technology is supposed to make life easier.
Science can broadly be defined as the study of "things" such as: Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Genetics, Geology, Psychology, Sociology, and other fields of study that analyze …interactions, behaviors, physical properties, effects, causes, etc. in order to rationalize or establish given properties, behaviors and interactions about such "things". The basis of Science is the conducting of experiments. Basically, a theory is made (stated), analysis and testing are performed with the use of various controls, and when a specific, measurable result occurs, and can be reproduced or proven time and time again, the theory then becomes Scientific law, or a truism of sorts. Technology, refers generally to items of use, created from "Applied Science". A good example of this is the production of Solar panels. Solar Panels are used in a variety of different technologies, but the simplest example is a Solar Powered Calculator. It was proposed long ago that the Sun emits 2 types of energy, heat energy and light energy. The Sun's heat energy is what warms the Earth's atmosphere so that life as we know it can exist, by warming the atmosphere to a tolerable temperature that the Human Body can function in. (Space is somewhere around -230 degrees Fahrenheit, and at those temperatures, plants could not grow, and the Human body would not be able to carry on normal functions such as breathing in that cold of temperature.) The sun's light energy is absorbed by Solar Panels (and Solar Cells), and converts that energy to electricity so that the calculator can perform mathematical functions. To test this, put a piece of electrical tape over your calculator for 15 minutes, and then see if you can turn it on. If you can't then you know the light energy is being converted to electricity. In brief: Science is the study of forces and interactions between different "things", both animate and inanimate. Technology can be referred to as things which we make, but were developed by applying Scientific law, knowing what such "things" are capable of doing. Science is the understanding of nature. Technology is the application of that understanding to practical things.
Science deals with understanding how the universe works, and technology deals with the creation of useful devices based upon scientific understanding.
Science is the cumulative knowledge that mankind has gathered up to the present. For ideas to gain acceptance by the scientific community, a hypothesis has to be proposed and …supported by data and observations, and then withstand repeated testing under different conditions. A hypothesis that survives this process becomes a scientific theory, which although can still be overturned by later discoveries, is conventionally regarded in the meantime as scientific knowledge. Science is the sum of all this knowledge and information. Technology, on the other hand, refers to every tool and material product used by humans. Although technology is often used informally to refer to advanced electronics, technology includes everything from the hammers used by cavemen to the clothes we wear to the cellphones we talk on. So "science" is knowledge, and "technology" is applications. The link between these two is that "technology" is the corporeal reflection of our "scientific knowledge," so therefore the advancement of technology depends on the progress of scientific development.
Science is an activity of inquiry and discovery. Technology is the practical application of knowledge.
different shape of science technology
Both serve a purpose in our lives, one is the search of truth and advances in our every day lives and technology helps bring it together and easy to use.
The basic and simplest difference is that science is the investigation and explanation of natural and man made phenomena. Technology is the application of the results …of the above investigations.
Technology is how people change the world around them to meet their needs, and science is the study of the natural world to understand how it functions.
Physics: the study of matter, energy, space and time. Botany: the study of plants. Chemistry: the study of reactions, creations, and binding of matter. Mineralogy: The study o…f minerals such as their identification, and properties. Biology: the study of living things. Astronomy: the study of space. Geology: the study of Earth and its components, e.g. soils, rocks, etc. Microbiology: the study of microorganisms, e.g. bacteria and their effects on other living organisms. Palaeontology: the study of prehistoric life through evidence provided by fossils. Medicine: Diagnosis and treatment of disease and damage to the body. Pathology: the study of diseases and their causes, processes, development, and consequences. Linguistics: The study of language, its structure and phonetics. Entomology: the study of insects. Seismology: the study of earthquakes, their causes and measurement. Forestry: The science of cultivating, maintaining, and developing forests. Ichthyology: The study of fish.
Science is science itself. Technology is using that science to design and build things. Same with engineering, you use science to design that steam engine.
Put very simply, science is the study of a subject in search of knowledge and/or solutions. Technology is the means of utilizing results of that study, particularly… with the aim of furthering industry, commerce, or other areas - such as education - which will benefit others. Science is a branch of knowledge that deals with the world itself and we learn more about the world through observation. While technology uses science to make the world better. It's like a cause and effect situation.
Technology is a form of knowledge dedicated to creating tools, managing actions and extracting of materials. Science is the investigation and explanation of natural and ma…n-made phenomena.
