Is there any place on Stack Exchange to ask science related questions ,

like

E = MC2, what does it really mean?

or

We know that oxygen is needed for various life forms; why are other gases like CO2 and nitrogen not?

    There is physics.stackexchange, but your first question is not a good one because it is answered in every popular science book/website ever written. Really. The second question may fit on biology.stackexchange - read their FAQs first, but I think I've seen similar questions there.

  • Beyond school, science becomes too broad a term.

    Your second question is based on a wrong assumption, both CO2 and N2 are used by certain organisms (plants and nitrogen-fixating bacteria, respectively) Feb 14 '13 at 16:10
  • @MadScientist It's still potentially a good question though. A good answer could start like that... Feb 14 '13 at 16:14
  • @MadScientist all those questions some samples only , my actual question vary.

"Science" is simply too broad of a field. There are many different types of science fields, and many different stack exchange sites that all fit into the scope of "science".

Here is a (non-inclusive) list of some sites that all represent [mostly or entirely] "science" questions:

  • Stack Overflow
  • Web Masters
  • Game Development
  • Programmers
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Android
  • DBA
  • Computer Science
  • Libraries and Information Science
  • Robotics
