The Concepts under  the Science of Chemistry in Luganda


Essomabuziba (Atomic chemistry)


Everything that exists in nature has its building blocks and chemical nature. This is what every developed language should be able to explain in its own diction. These are some of the words you can use in Luganda:

• Endagabuzimbe/Ennabuzimbe (matter)

• Enzitoya (mass)

• Akaziba =Atomu (atom)

• Obuziba (atoms)

• Akatoffaalkazimbakintu (the buildingblock of matter)

Weetegereze :

Akataffaali (living cell)

Akatoffaali =(particle, building blocks of both animate and inanimate things)

• Sayansi wa atomu (atomic science)

• Sayansi w’obuziba Amasoboza ga atomu /amasoboza g'obuziba (atomic energy)


• Amasoboza g’obuziba (atomic energy)

“ • Bbomu y’atomu (atomic bomb)


• Bbomu ey’obuziba (atomic bomb) “ • Obuzimbe bw’atomu (the atomic structure)


• Obuzimbe bw’akaziba (atomic structure) “

• Ekikyusabuziba-ekikolwa ekirimu enkyukakyuka ez'obuziba (Chemical reaction)


• Ebitomeggero bya nyukiria (nuclear reactors)

• Obutoffaali obuzimba akaziba (the building blocks of the atom)

• Essomabuzimbe bwa kaziba ( the chemistry of the atom)

• Obukontanyo /Kikontana/ konta (proton)

• Nampawengwa/nampa (neutron)

• Akatoffaalikazimbakintu (building block of matter)

• “Ekikyusatomu (atomic reaction)

• Ekikyusabuziba (chemical reactions)

• Enkyuakkyuka ez’ebuziba (chemical change)

• Omweso ogw'enkyusabuziba (table of chemical elements)

• Endagakintuez'enkyusabuziba (chemical elements)

• Bubonero bw’enhyusabuziba” (Chemical symbols)
