PLATE TECTONICS

Plate tectonics is a scientific theory describing the large-scale motion of seven large plates and the movements of a larger number of smaller plates of the Earth's lithosphere.
Theory is based on continental drift which
explains the formation of various continents over millions of years as we see them today.


Plate Boundaries
Based on the relative movement between
two tectonic plates, there are three types of plate boundaries.
They are as follows:
Convergent Boundary: In this case, the two adjacent tectonic
plates move towards each other.
Divergent Boundary: In this case, the two adjacent plates
move away from each other.
Transform Boundary: In this case, the two adjacent plates
move along their borders.

DESERTS IN THE WORLD

desert is a barren area of landscape where little precipitation occurs and, consequently, living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life. 


Deserts are formed by weathering processes as large variations in temperature between day and night put strains on the rocks which consequently break in pieces. Although rain seldom occurs in deserts.

REASONS OF DESERT FORMATION

(1) Natural Situation

(2) Air Circulation Pattern

(3) Currents: A Hot Water Heating System

(4) Oceanic Currents

(5) Remote Situation from an Oceanic Moisture

(6) Mountain Barrier

(7) Rainless

(8) Temperature

(9) Man, in Desert Making

HISTORY (MUGHAL EMPIRE)

BABUR Descendent of Timur (from his father side) and Genghis khan (from his mother side)It is said that he was invited in India by Daulat Khan Lodi and Alam kha lodiHe laid the foundation of the Mughal empire by defeating Ibrahim Lodi in the first battle of Panipat on 21, April 1526.In 1527, he defeated Rana Sanga of Mewar at Khanwa.In 1528, he defeated Medini Rai of Chaneri at Chanderi.In 1529, he defeated Muhammad Lodhi (uncle of Ibrahim Lodhi) at Ghaghra.In 1530, he died at Agra. His tomb is at Lahore. The tomb of only two Mughal emperors are outside India i.e. Babur & Bahadur Shah ZafarHe was the first to use gunpowder & artillery in India.Two gun masters Mustafa & Ustad Ali were in his armyHe wrote his autobiography Tuzuk-i-Baburi in Turki.Tuzuk-i-Baburi was translated in Persian (named Baburnama) by Abdur Rahim Khan-e-khana & in English by Madan Bebridge.He compiled two anthologies of poems, Diwan (in Turki) & Mubaiyan (in Persian). He also wrote Risal-i-Usaz …

PHYSICS (SOUND)

Think like a proton and stay positive


Sound waves are mechanical longitudinal waves and require a medium for their propagation.





Sound cannot propagate through vacuum. When it propagates, speed and wavelength changes but the frequency remain constant. It is of three types Infrasonic waves – (0 to 20 Hz) Audible waves – (20 to 20,000 Hz) Ultrasonic waves – (>20,000 Hz)


Properties of Sound Wave Reflection The bouncing back of sound when it strikes a hard surface, is called reflection of sound.The laws of reflection of light are also obeyed during reflection of sound.The working of megaphone, soundboards, and ear trumpets are based on the reflection of sound.The repetition of sound due to reflection of sound waves, is called an echo.


The minimum distance from a sound-reflecting surface to hear an echo is nearly 17 m.The persistence of hearing on the human ear is 1/10th of a second.
Soundproof rooms are made of two layers of walls having a vacuum between them.
