Exp. Fluorescent lamp tube is filled with a gas containing low pressure mercury vapour and Argon. Sometimes gases like Xenon, Neon or Krypton can also be used. The pressure inside the lamp is around 0.3% of atmospheric pressure.


Exp. Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed largely of the minerals Calcite and Aragonite which are different crystals form of Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3). Limestone binds with silica and other impurities to remove them from the iron.


Exp. Monazite is an important ore for Thorium, Lanthanum and Cerium. India, Madagascar and South Africa have large deposits of monazite sands.


Exp. The Geiger-Muller Counter also called a Geiger Counter, is an instrument used for detection and measurement ionizing radiation.


Exp. Solid camphor directly changes into camphor vapour and this process is called sublimation. The sublimation is the process in which some substances upon heating directly changes into vapour from and when cooled again directly turns into solid form.


Exp. Mercury is the only metal which is liquid at ordinary temperature.


Exp. Mercury is a chemical element with the symbol (Hg). Mercury is used in thermometers due to its special properties. Mercury is good conductor of heat.


Exp. Diamond is an allotrope of Carbon . Marble is a metamorphic rock composed mainly of crystalline calcium Carbonate or Calcium Magnesium Carbonate. The most common component of sand is Silicon dioxide in the form of quartz.  Ruby is considered as one of the four precious stones together with Sapphire, Emerald and Diamond. In Chemistry, the ruby gemstone is a mixture of Aluminium, Oxygen and Chromium.


Exp. When an acid and a base are placed together, they react to neutralize the acid and base properties, producing a salt. This reaction is called Neutralisation.


Exp. Galvanisation is the process of applying a protective zinc coating to iron or steel, to prevent rusting. The most common method is hot dip galvanizing, in which steel sections are submerged in a bath of molten zinc.
