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 (SiO 2 ) 20-25% Alumina (Al 2 O 3 ) 5-10% Ferric oxide (Fe 2 O 3  )         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 Al 2 O 3 ) should be between 2.5 and 4 and the ratio of lime (CaO) to the total of the oxides of silicon (SiO 2 ) aluminium (Al 2 O 3 ) and iron (Fe 2 O 3 ) should be as close as possible to 2. The raw materials for the manufacture of cement


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.Th

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

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.
