  4. 4. 1. • The Bessemer process was the first inexpensive industrial process for the mass-production of X from molten pig iron prior to the open hearth furnace. The key principle is removal of impurities from the iron by oxidation with air being blown through the molten iron. The oxidation also raises the temperature of the iron mass and keeps it molten. • Related decarburizing with air processes had been used outside Europe for hundreds of years, but not on an industrial scale. The process has existed since the 11th century in East Asia, where the scholar Shen Kuo describes its use in China . In the 17th century, accounts by European travellers detailed its possible use by the Japanese. The modern process is named after its inventor, the Englishman Henry Bessemer, who took out a patent on the process in 1856. • In the manufacturing of what is the Bessemer process used?

On either side of the gnomon is a quadrant of a circle, parallel to the plane of the equator. The instrument is intended to measure the time of day, correct to half a second and declination of the Sun and the other heavenly bodies. In the 18th century these were constructed by Maharaja Jai Singh II with the primary purpose of the observatory was to compile astronomical tables, and to predict the times and movements of the sun, moon and planets. • The name X translates into calculation instrument in Hindi, Identify X.

The tagline used by them was that “Our toothpaste consist of X which is very good for white teeth” . • Hence when this was launched they were mocked by Indians, so the question here is what did Colgate add in their new toothpaste brand which Indians have using it since the last 97 years.

  38. 38. 18. • The name of this metal derives from a Spanish word which means "little silver", because it was first encountered in a silver mine.It is the least reactive metal. It has remarkable resistance to corrosion, even at high temperatures, and is therefore considered a noble metal. It is now used in catalytic converters, laboratory equipment, electrical contacts and electrodes, thermometers and dentistry equipment. Being a heavy metal, it leads to health issues upon exposure to its salts, but due to its corrosion resistance, it is not as toxic as some metals. • Which metal are we talking about which also considered as a symbol of prestige ?
  39. 39. ANSWER
  40. 40. 19. • The soleus is a powerful muscle in the back part of the lower leg (the calf). It runs from just below the knee to the heel, and is involved in standing and walking. The action of the calf muscles, including the soleus, is plantarflexion of the foot (that is, they increase the angle between the foot and the leg). They are powerful muscles and are vital in walking, running, and dancing. The soleus specifically plays an important role in maintaining standing posture; if not for its constant pull, the body would fall forward. • Also, in upright posture, the soleus is responsible for completing a system. It acts as a pseudo organ, hence it gets a very peculiar name. How do we know the soleus muscle ?
  41. 41. ANSWER Peripheral Heart / Second Heart/ Sural Pump/ Skeletal-Muscle Pump
  42. 42. 20. "Hiding in the Light" is the fifth episode of the American documentary television series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. The asteroid 59239
