Cellulose

Cellulose is an organic compound with the formula (C6H10O5)n, a polysaccharide consisting of a linear chain of several hundred to many thousands of β(1→4) linked D-glucose units. Cellulose is an important structural component of the primary cell wall of green plants, many forms of algae and the oomycetes. Some species of bacteria secrete it to form biofilms. Cellulose is the most abundant organic polymer on Earth.The cellulose content of cotton fiber is 90%, that of wood is 40–50% and that of dried hemp is approximately 57%.

1. Describe any three experiments or observations which support the belief that the earth is roughly a sphere. (125 words)

2. Explain with an example what is a symbiotic relationship? (125 words)

1.किन्हीं भी तीन प्रयोगों या अवलोकनों का वर्णन करें जो इस विश्वास का समर्थन करते हैं कि पृथ्वी लगभग गोल  है। ?(125 words)

2.एक उदाहरण के साथ समझाएं  की एक सहजीवी संबंध क्या है? (125 words)


  1. The following simple and straight observations prove that the Earth is a sphere:Observation of an approaching ship: When we view an approaching ship we
    first observe the appearance of its highest portion, i.e., the mast, then funnel and  lastly the deck. Had the Earth been flat, we would have seen the whole ship in the  first instant. If Mast of ship is seen from all direction from a fixed point, we can  calculate the curvature of the Earth.

    Shadow of the Earth: At the time of lunar eclipse the shadow of the Earth that  falls on the Moon is round. More specifically the edge of the shadow is an arc of  the Moon, as seen from the Earth, looks like a flat disk. It can be proved  with the help of geometry that only a sphere will cast a circular shadow on a flat surface .

    Sun rise: The sun rises first in the East and appears later in the west. Had the  Earth been flat, the sun would have risen in the East and West at the same time.  Thus, Earth is roughly a sphere.
