4 gms of steam at 100°C is added to 20 gms of water at 46°C in a container of negligible mass. Assuming no heat is lost to surrounding, the mass of water in container at thermal equilibrium is. Latent heat of vaporisation = 540 cal/gm. Specific heat of water = 1 cal/gm°C.
Heat released by steam inconversion to water at 100°C is Q_{1} = mL = 4 × 540 = 2160 cal.
Heat required to raise temperature of water from 46°C t 100°C is Q_{2} = mS Δθ = 20 × 1 × 54 = 1080 J
Hence all steam is not converted to water only half steam shall be converted to water
So Final mass of water = 20 + 2 = 22 gm

The atmospheric lapse rate
For small volumes of gas, according to kinetic theory of gases, all parts of the gas are at the same temperature. But for huge volumes of gas like atmosphere, assumption of a uniform temperature throughout the gas is not valid. Different parts of the atmosphere are at different temperatures. Apart from the surface of the earth, variations also occur in temperature at different heights in the atmosphere.
The decrease in temperature with height called the atmospheric lapse rate is similar at various locations across the surface of the Earth. By analyzing the data collected at various locations, it is found that average global lapse rate is – 6.7 °C/Km.
The linear decrease with temperature only occurs in the lower part of the atmosphere called the troposphere. This is the part of the atmosphere in which weather occurs and our planes fly. Above the troposphere is the stratosphere, with an imaginary boundary separating the two layers. In the stratosphere, temperature tends to be relatively constant.
Absorption of sunlight at the Earth’s surface warms the troposphere from below, so vertical convection currents are continually mixing in the air. As a parcel of air rises, its pressure drops and it expands. The parcel does work on its surrounding, so that its internal energy and therefore, its temperature drops. Assume that the vertical mixing is so rapid as to be adiabatic and the quantity TP^{(1 – λ)/λ} has a uniform value through the layers of troposphere.

The elements of group 1 describe, more clearly than any other group of elements, the effects of increasing the size of atoms or ions on the physical and chemical properties. The chemical and physical properties of the elements are closely related to their electronic structures and sizes. These metals are highly electropositive and thus form very strong bases, and have quite stable oxosalts. In the manufacturing of sodium hydroxide, chlorine and sodium carbonate, the sodium chloride is used as starting material.
Basic strength of the oxides increase in the order Li_{2}O < Na_{2}O < K_{2}O < Rb_{2}O < Cs_{2}O. The increase in basic strength is due to the decrease in I.E. and increase in electropositive character.The melting points of the halides decrease in the order NaF > NaCl > NaBr > NaI, as the size of the halide ion increases. The decrease in melting point is due to increase the covalent character with increase in the size of anion according to Fajan's rule.

An ellipse has semimajor axes of lengths 2 and semiminor axis of length 1. It is slipping between the coordinate axes in the first quadrant while maintaining contact with both xaxis and yaxis.
Q. The locus of centre of the ellipse is
The coordinate axes are tangent to the ellipse at any position. So,
origin lies on the director circle of the ellipse.
Let C be (α, β). The equation of director circle depends only on the location of centre of ellipse and its semimajor and minor axes, not on their orientation.
Hence, director circle is (x – α)^{2} + (y – β)^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2} = 2^{2} + 1^{2} = 5
Since it passes through (0, 0)
α^{2} + β^{2} = 5

You may use the fact that the product of perpendicular distances of any tangent on ellipse from its foci is
always equal to square of semiminor axis.
