Astronomy is the study of items and things in the earth’s atmosphere. Scientists in astronomy study their properties that are physical or chemical. Astrophysics is the science that is part of astronomy but it is more specific in nature. It is the part of astronomy that looks at the behavior and actions of the items that float in space and the unknown items that float in space.
Astrophysicists gather information about these objects in space and analyzes them. When they gather the information, then they study it. Astronomy is on a larger scale than astrophysics because it deals with many more things about space like planets and black holes. In the future, we will have learned more about space and the universe.
Astrophysics is related to Astronomy and the two areas of study are usually found within the same department in universities. Astronomy studies the stars, planets, comets, gas, galaxies, gas, dust and other non-Earthly bodies and phenomena. Astrophysics is a branch of astronomy that studies the physical or chemical properties of celestial bodies.
Using laws of physics and chemistry it seeks to understand the birth, life and death of stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae and other objects in the universe. It's clear from this that you can't study astro-physics without studying astronomy.
