GA Study Notes On Cement Manufacturing

Manufacturing of Cement

Cement is essential for construction activity such as building houses, factories, bridges, roads, airports, dams and for other commercial establishments.The first cement plant was set up in Chennai in 1904.It was discovered by an English Mason, Joseph Aspdin in 1824. He called it Portland cement because he thought that it resembled the limestone found in Portland.

Approximate Composition of Portland cement
Calcium oxide (CaO) 60-70%
Silica (SiO2) 20-25%

Alumina (Al2O3) 5-10%

Ferric oxide (Fe2O3 )         2-3%

Raw materials are:

Limestone -  (provides lime), Clay -  (provides alumina and silica), Gypsum - (reduces the setting time of cement).

For a good quality cement, the ratio of silica (SiO) to alumina Al2O3) should be between 2.5 and 4 and the ratio of lime (CaO) to the total of the oxides of silicon (SiO2) aluminium (Al2O3) and iron (Fe2O3) should be as close as possible to 2.

The raw materials for the manufacture of cement are limestone and clay. When clay and lime are strongly heated together they fuse and react to form ‘cement clinker’. This clinker is mixed with 2-3% by weight of gypsum (CaSO4·2H2O) to form cement.Thus important ingredients present in Portland cement are dicalcium silicate (Ca2SiO4) 26%, tricalciumsilicate (Ca3SiO5) 51% and tricalcium aluminate (Ca3Al2O6)11%.Mortar is a mixture of cement, sand, and water. It is used for plastering walls and binding bricks and stones.Concrete is a mixture of cement, sand, gravel or small pieces of stone and water. It is used for the construction of floors.RCC - The structure having iron rods embedded in wet concrete, is known as reinforced concrete. 

Setting of Cement: When mixed with water, the setting of cement takes place to give a hard mass. This is due to the hydration of the molecules of the constituents and their rearrangement. The purpose of adding gypsum is only to slow down the process of setting of the cement so that it gets sufficiently
hardened.It is an exothermic process, therefore cement structures have to be cooled up to 7 days by sprinkling water.

Uses: Cement has become a commodity of national necessity for any country next to iron and steel. It is used in concrete and reinforced concrete, in plastering and in the construction of bridges, dams, and buildings.

GA Study Notes On STRUCTURE OF THE ATMOSPHERE

The Earth is surrounded by a layer of gas called the atmosphere.The atmosphere extends up to a height of about 1,600 kilometres. 

The atmosphere is composed of:
Nitrogen (78.09%),
Oxygen (20.95%),
Argon(0.93%), 
Other gases(0.03%)

Air pressure

As we go up the layers of the atmosphere, the pressure falls rapidly. The air pressure is highest at sea level and decreases with height. In areas where the temperature is high the air gets heated and rises. This creates a low-pressure area. Low pressure is associated with cloudy skies and wet weather.In areas having a lower temperature, the air is cold. It is therefore heavy. Heavy air sinks and creates a high-pressure area.High pressure is associated with clear and sunny skies.

Our atmosphere is divided into five layers starting from the earth’s surface. These are Troposphere, Stratosphere, Mesosphere, Thermosphere and Exosphere.

1.Troposphere: This layer is the most important layer of the atmosphere. 

Its average height is 13 km.The air we breathe exists here. Almost all the weather phenomena like rainfall, fog and hailstorm occur in this layer.Tropopause - it is the layer that separates the troposphere from the stratosphere.In the troposphere, the temperature generally decreases with height, whereas above the tropopause, the temperature no longer decreases.

2.Stratosphere: Above the troposphere lies the stratosphere.

 It extends up to a height of 50 km. This layer is almost free from clouds and associated weather phenomenon, making conditions most ideal for flying aeroplanes.One important feature of the stratosphere is that it contains a layer of ozone gas, which protects us from the harmful effect of the sun rays.

Layers of the Atmosphere

3. Mesosphere: This is the third layer of the atmosphere and lies above the stratosphere.

It extends up to the height of 80 km.Meteorites burn up in this layer on entering from the space.It is the coldest layer of the atmosphere.

4.Thermosphere: In thermosphere temperature rises very rapidly with increasing height.The ionosphere is a part of this layer. This layer helps in radio transmission. 

Ionosphere: It lies immediately above the mesosphere and extends from 80 to 400 km above the Earth's surface.

The ionosphere is the part of the Earth's upper atmosphere, where ions and electrons are present to affect the propagation of radio waves.In fact, radio waves transmitted from the earth are reflected back to the earth by this layer.This layer contains electrically charged air that protects the Earth from falling meteorites as most of them burn out in this region.

5. Exosphere: The uppermost layer of the atmosphere is known as  Exosphere. This layer has very thin air. Light gases like helium and hydrogen float into space from here.

GA Study Notes On Electricity

Electric Circuit 
A continuous and closed path of an electric current is called an electric circuit.
Electric current is expressed by the amount of charge flowing through a particular area in unit time.

Direction of Electric current

Electric current was considered to be the flow of positive charges.Conventionally, in an electric circuit, the direction of electric current is taken as opposite to the direction of the flow of electrons, which are negative charges.If a net charge Q flows across any cross-section of a conductor in time t, then the current I, through the cross-section is:

          I = Q/t

The SI unit of electric charge is Coulomb (C).The SI unit of electric current is ampere (A).

One ampere
One ampere is constituted by the flow of one coulomb of charge per second.

Ammeter 
An instrument called ammeter measures electric current in a circuit. It is always connected in series in a circuit through which the current is to be measured.

Note that the electric current flows in the circuit from the positive terminal of the cell to the negative terminal of the cell through the bulb and ammeter.

Potential Difference
The electrons move only if there is a difference of electric pressure called the potential difference along the conductor. The chemical action within a cell generates the potential difference across the terminals of the cell. When the cell is connected to a conducting circuit element, the potential difference sets the charges in motion in the conductor and produces an electric current.

One volt 
One volt is the potential difference between two points in a current carrying conductor when 1 joule of work is done to move a charge of 1 coulomb from one point to the other.

1 volt = 1 joule/1 coulomb

OHM’S LAW
The potential difference, V, across the ends of a given metallic wire in an electric circuit is directly proportional to the current flowing through it, provided its temperature remains the same. 

V ∝ I
V/I = constant
V = IR
R =  Resistance

Resistance
It is the property of a conductor to resist the flow of charges through it.Its SI unit is ohm(Ω).
The resistance of the conductor depends (i) on its length, (ii) on its area of cross-section, and (iii) on the nature of its material. 
R ∝ l 
and R ∝ 1/A
R ∝ l/A
or, R = ρl/A
where ρ (rho) is a constant of proportionality and is called the electrical resistivity of the material of the conductor.The SI unit of resistivity is Ω m.

Variable Resistance 
A component used to regulate current without changing the voltage source is called variable resistance.

Rheostat
It is often used to change the resistance in the circuit.

RESISTANCE OF A SYSTEM OF RESISTORS

(i)Series resistor 

Resistors are joined end to end.The current is the same in every part of the circuit or the same current through each resistor.The resistance of the combination is greater than any individual resistance.The disadvantage of a series circuit is that when one component fails the circuit is broken and none of the components works

(ii) Parallel resistor 

Resistors are joined in parallel.The equivalent resistance of a group of resistances joined in parallel is equal to the sum of the reciprocals of the individual resistances.The potential difference across each resistor is also V.The total resistance in a parallel circuit is decreased. This is helpful particularly when each gadget has different resistance and requires different current to operate properly.

GA Study Notes On Buddhism

➤➤Buddism was founded by Gautama Siddhartha who was a Kshatriya prince of the Sakya/Shakya clan.

➤➤Lord Buddha was born in 623 BC in the sacred area of Lumbini (near Kapilavastu) located in the Terai plains of southern Nepal.

➤➤Siddhartha received enlightenment at Bodh Gaya(Bihar) at the age of 35, under a Pipal tree and became the Buddha.

➤➤He delivered his first sermon at Sarnath in Banaras and spread his message for approximately 40 years, before dying at the age of 80 in 487 BC at Kushinagar in Deoria district of eastern Uttar Pradesh.

➤➤The Buddha taught in the language of the ordinary people, Prakrit, so that everybody could understand his message.

➤➤There are many stories about Buddha’s lives and are called Jatakas.

➤➤The sacred book of Buddhism is called the Tripitaka (called Tipitaka in Pali). It is also called the Pali Canon, after the language in which it was first written.

➤➤Ajatashatru was the son of King Bimbisara and was a contemporary of both  Gautama Buddha and Mahavira. This was also the time when other scholars were at work. One of the most famous was Panini, who prepared a grammar for Sanskrit.

➤➤First Buddhist Council was held in – Rajagriha. During the fourth Buddist Council held in Kashmir, the Buddhists split two groups:
The Hinayana and the Mahayana.
⏩The Hinayana believed in the simple teachings of Buddha. They did not worship Buddha in the form of his image but honoured his footprints, umbrella and other objects. Pali was their main language.
⏩The Mahayana worshipped the image of Buddha. Sanskrit was their language. Ashwagosha, Nagarjuna, Vasubhandu were some of the greatest philosophers of Mahayanism.

➤➤The Eight-Fold Path -- Right faith, Right though, Right action, Right means of livelihood, Right exertion or efforts, Right speech, Right remembrance and Right concentration or meditation.

➤➤Three Ratnas- Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha.

➤➤Buddism flourished in India under the patronage of monarchs such as Ashoka and Kanishka.

ECONOMICS NOTES for SSC CHSL EXAM

Definition: A rise in the general level of price in an economy. That is sustained over time.

The opposite of Inflation in ‘deflation’.Inflation, in general, is just a price rise.When the general level of prices is falling over a period of time it is called deflation.The rate of inflation is measured on the basis of price indices which are of two kind WPI & CPIWPI - Wholesale Price IndexCPI - Consumer price Index

Rate of inflation (Year x)

In the index, the total weight is taken as 100 at particular year of the past i.e. Base year (Year of reference)Inflation is measured ‘point to point’. It means that the reference dates for the annual inflation are January to January of two consecutive years. This is similar for even weekly inflation.

Types of Inflation: Broadly there are 2 types of inflation.
(a) Demand - Pull Inflation:

A mismatch between demand & supply pulls up the price.Either demand increases over the same level of supply or the supply decreases the same level of demand.This is Keynesian idea.

(b) Cost - Push Inflation:-

An increase factor input costs (i.e. wage & raw materials) push up the prices.A price rise which is the result of the increase in the production cost is cost - push inflation.

A measure of check inflation:-
(1) Supply side: 

Govt may import.Govt may increase production.Govt may improve storage. Transportation, hoarding etc

(2) Cost side:

Govt may cut down production cost by giving tax breaks, cuts in duties etc.By adopting Better production process, technological Innovation etc.Increasing Income of people also helps in checking inflation.

(3) Other steps:

 Tighter monetary policies can be introduced by RBI, this might help in a short run.Increasing production with the help of best production practices is a long term solution.

Other types of inflation: In General there are 3 Broad Categories i.e.
(i) Low inflation:- 

 It is slow & predictable. Takes place in a longer period. The range of increase is usually in single digit. It is also called CREEPING INFLATION

(ii) Galloping Inflation:- 

It is very high inflationRange of increase is usually in double digit or triple digit It is also known as hopping inflation, jumping inflation & Running Runaway inflation. 

(iii) Hyper-Inflation:-

This type of inflation is large and Accelerating. (This might have annual rates in Millions or even Trillion.(Range of increase is very large but increase takes place in a very short span of time. The price shoots up overnight.

Over variants of inflation:-  
(i) Bottleneck inflation:-

This inflation takes place when supply falls drastically & the demand remains at the same level. Such situation arises due to supply ride accidents, hazards or Mismanagement.It is also known as ‘structural Inflation’It can be put Under ‘demand-pull inflation

(ii) Core inflation:-

This nomenclature is based on the inclusion or Exclusion of the good & services while calculating inflation.  In India, it was 1st time used in the financial year 2001-02. In India, it means inflation of Manufactured goods.

GEOGRAPHY NOTES: Indian Agriculture For RRB NTPC EXAM and SSC CHSL EXAM

Green Revolution – I
Introduced in 1966 (Plan Holiday)
Father of Green Revolt – Dr. Norman Borlog
Father of Green Revolt – M. S. Swaminathan (In India)

Objectives: - Use of high yielding variety seeds, fertiliser, power and increase food productivity.
Green Revolt – Phase – I – Wheat 
Phase – II – Rice
Focus Area: - Punjab, Haryana, Western U.P.  

Green Revolution– II   concept by – Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
“Evergreen Revolution or Rainbow revolution”
Start in decade of 2000
Objective: - Promote agriculture a/c to climate condition and also promote organic farming and increase overall food security.
Focus crop: - Milk, egg, Meat, Vegetable → A/C to climatic condition
Focus Area: - All India

Organic farming: - No use/less use of fertiliser
- use bio fertiliser, like – Earthworm
- the concept is given by – Albert Howard (1930 – 40)

Zero farming: - up to 3-4 years. – Continuous use of organic fertiliser/ organic farming and due to this fertility of soil increase and After  some period, there will be no use of fertiliser

JHOOM CULTIVATION -

In this farming, after cutting one crop the land is left as it is for some years. Nothing is grown there. The weeds or bamboo which grow on that land are not pulled out. They are cut and burnt. The ash makes the land fertile. While burning, care is taken so that the fire does not spread to other parts of the forest. When the land is ready for farming it is lightly dug up, not ploughed. Seeds are dropped on it. In one farm different types of crops like maize, vegetables, chillies, rice can be grown.

Study notes on "MODERN PERIODIC TABLE

MODERN PERIODIC TABLE

VALENCY

Valency may be defined as “the combining capacity of the atom of an element with atoms of other elements in order to acquire the stable configuration (i.e. 8 electron in valence shell. In some special cases it is 2 electrons).”

ATOMIC SIZE

It refers to the distance between the centre of nucleus of an isolated atom to its outermost shell containing electrons.

The atomic radius decreases on moving from left to right along a period. This is due to an increase in nuclear charge which tends to pull the electrons closer to the nucleus and reduces the size of the atom.

In a group atomic size increases from top to bottom due to increase in number of shells.

METALLIC AND NON-METALLIC PROPERTIES

In a period from left to right metallic nature decreases while non-metallic character increases.

In a group metallic character increases from top to bottom while non-metallic character decrease.
