Life science refers to any of the sciences that deal with the study of living organisms. Physical science, on the other hand, is a branch of natural science that deals with the study of non-living organisms. Since life science is the study of anything that has life, this science is centered on the study of plants, humans, and animals. In addition to this, life science is also centered on the study of the behavioral aspects of human life. Although, physical science deals with non-living things, certain biological processes can be employed to explain certain concepts of this study. However,

physical science uses laws and theories to explain certain concepts of this study. There are so many disciplines or fields under life science, they include; biology, biochemistry, genetics, botany, medicine, zoology, ecology, etc. The various fields under physical science include inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, organic chemistry, theoretical chemistry, soil science, etc.

Life sciences is focused on the study of plants, animals, and humans. Psychology, which is another form of learning about humans and behaviors, is also considered a life science because it involves complex and intricate biological factors to explain the conduct of organisms. In physical science, on the other hand, involves nonliving things, although sometimes there is a need for further explanation.

The general principle of physical science requires an understanding of the topic. Physical science depends on theories and laws to determine why this occurs and why that does not. Some examples of life sciences include biochemistry, botany, cell biology, genetics, and ecology. Some examples of physical sciences include geology, chemistry, meteorology, and physics.
