A strobilus (plural: strobili) is a structure present on many land plant species consisting of sporangia-bearing structures densely aggregated along a stem. Strobili are often called cones, but some botanists restrict the use of the term cone to the woody seed strobili of conifers.
Montreal protocol was signed for protection of stratospheric ozone by decreasing the use of ozone depleting substances like chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs),carbon tetrachloride (CCl4),methyl chloroform (CH3CCl3) etc...
The Kyoto Protocol is an international agreement that aimed to manage and reduce carbon dioxide emissions and greenhouse gases. The Protocol was adopted at a conference in Kyoto, Japan, in 1997 and became international law on February 16, 2005.
The common name of any species is much simpler than its scientific name. However, the scientific name is more acceptable to biologists all over the world in scientific studies than common names. This is because different countries have different languages and different name for the single species. This would create confusion. Hence, use of scientific names has an advantage over the common name
Homeostasis is any self-regulating process by which an organism tends to maintain stability while adjusting to conditions that are best for its survival. ... The “stability” that the organism reaches is rarely around an exact point (such as the idealized human body temperature of 37 degree celsius
Wien's law states that when the temperature of a black body radiator increases, the overall radiated energy increases and the peak of the radiation curve moves to shorter wavelengths.
where T is the temperature and λ corresponds to the wavelength around which maximum energy radiated
Μ = refractive index of glass of prism wrt to air or water as the case may be. Refractive index of glass wrt water is less than wrt to air. Hence angle of deviation is less. Hence dispersive power is less. Glass prism works on the principle that lights with different colours travels with different speed in solid and liquid medium. So when a glass prism is dipped in water the light that reach... morees it is already some what dispersed by water, and the prism does still more. Hence its dispersive power decreases.
