(iv) Starting project to save endangered animals
i. Write notes on (i) project tiger (ii) Gir lion project
 (i) Project Tiger: Project tiger is a program launched by government that saves tiger from poaching by making 23 tiger reserve.
(ii) Gir lion project :  Gir lion project started by Gujarat government in 1972 to protect Asian lion.
j. What does IUCN Stands for?
Answer: IUCN Stands for The international Union for Conserve of Nature and Natural Resources.
k. What do you know about Chipko movement?
Answer: Chipko movement is started by Sundar Lal Bahuguna in Uttarakhand to save tree.  The women of village embraced the tree and protest cutting of tree.

Hots Questions:

1. Why rainfall reduced in Cherrapunji which once had the highest rain fall?
Answer: Rainfall in Cherrapunji greatly reduced by loss of forest cover to create space for growing population and for cement industries.
 2. How does over grazing lead to desertification?
Answer: over grazing reduce the grass cover of land and expose the soil to the atmospheric air. The Soil dries up and its humus layer is lost which slowly changed grass land into desert.
Q. Give any two examples of the endemic flora of Pachmarhi Biosphere reserve.
Answer.  Sal and wild mango.
Q. Why is species of some animal become endangered?
Answer. Some species of animal become endangered, because of the disturbances in their natural habitat.
Q. Why migratory birds migrated from one place 'to another?
Answer. Migratory birds migrate to overcome climatic changes. For example, Surkhab migrated from Malaysia.

Class 10 Chapter 02 Acid Bases and Salts NCERT Activity Explanation

NCERT Activity Chapter 02 Acid Bases and Salt Class 10 Chemistry Activity 2.1 Indicator Acid Base Red litmus No Change Blue Blue Litmus Red No change Phenolphthalein Colourless Pink Methyl Orange Pink   Yellow Indictors are substance which change colour in acidic or basic media. Activity 2.2 There are some substances whose odour changes in in acidic or basic media. These are called olfactory indicators. Like onion vanilla, onion and clove. These changes smell in basic solution. Activity 2.3 Take about 5 mL of dilute sulphuric acid in a test tube and add few pieces of zinc granules to it. => You will observe bubbles of hydrogen gas on the surface of zinc granules. Zn + H2SO4 --> ZnSO4 + H2 => Pass the Hydrogen gas through the soap solution. Bubbles formed in the soap solution as Hydrogen gas it does not get dissolved in it

CBSE I NCERT 10th Numerical Problem solved Reflection and reflection of light

Q. 1. A concave mirror of focal length 20cm is placed 50 cm from a wall. How far from the wall an object be placed to form its real image on the wall?  Solution: V= -50 cm F= -20cm From mirror formula 1/u = 1/f – 1/v = -1/20+ 1/50 = - 3/100  U = - 33.3 cm Therefore, the distance of the object from the wall x =  50 – u X = 50 – 33.3 = 16.7 cm. Q.2. An object is placed at a distance of 40cm from a concave mirror of focal length 15cm. If the object is displaced through a distance of 20 cm towards the mirror, By how much distance is the image displaced? Answer: Here f = - 15 cm, u = - 40 cm Now 1/f = 1/u + 1/v Then 1/v = 1/f – 1/u Or V= uf/u-f =( - 40 x -15)/25 = -24 cm Then object is displaced towards the mirror let u1 be the distance object from the Mirror in its new position. Then u1 = -(40-20) = -20cm If the image is formed at a distance u1 from the mirror then v1 = u1f/u1-f = -20X-15/-20+15 = -60 cm. = - 20 x-15/-20+15 = -60 cm. Therefor

Class 10 Metal and Non MetalsChapter 03 NCERT Activity Solutions

X Class 10 NCERT Activity Explanation Class 10 Metals and Non Metals Activity 3.1 Page No. 37 Take samples of iron, copper, aluminium and magnesium. Note the appearance of each sample. They have a shining surface. Clean the surface of each sample by rubbing them with sand paper and note their appearance again. They become more shiny. => Freshly cut Metal have shiny surface Activity 3.2 Page No. 37 Take small pieces of iron, copper, aluminium, and magnesium. Try to cut these metals with a sharp knife and note your observations. They are very hard to cut. Hold a piece of sodium metal with a pair of tongs and try to cut it with a knife. Sodium can be cut easily with knife. Hence K and Na are soft metal cut with knife Activity 3.3 Page No. 38 Take pieces of iron, zinc, lead and copper try to strike it four or five times with a hammer. These metals are beaten into thin sheet on hammering. This property of metal is called malleability and metals are called malleable. Activity 3.4 Page
