METHODS OF SEPARATION

  METHODS OF SEPARATION The process by which mixtures are separated to get pure substances is called separation A. Separation of solid-solid mixture 1 Hand picking- This method is used when quantity of mixture is small and substance which has to be separated I in the small portion. Ex. Small stones from grains. 2. Winnowing- This met . . .

Different stages of crop production

Ploughing The loosening of soil for sowing of seed is called ploughing. It makes the soil to pass the air. Sowing Scattering of seeds into the soil is called sowing. Adding fertilizers Seeds require nutrients for proper growth. These nutrients increase fertility of soil and are called fertilizers. Irrigation Watering of plants is ca . . .

Law of conservation of energy

According to law of conservation of energy total energy of the universe is conserved. The energy cannot be created nor be destroyed. It can simply be converted from one form to another. Let us consider the following examples in which one form of energy converts to another. A cell or battery converts chemical energy into electric energy. A mic . . .

Sources of energy

All sources of energy divided into two groups: Conventional sources of energy. Non- Conventional sources of energy. The fuel like wood, coal and petroleum are major conventional sources of energy. Wood and coal convert chemical energy into heat energy. Petroleum converts chemical energy into mechanical energy to run automobiles. The so . . .
