A budget deficit occurs when a nation spends more on goods and services than it makes through taxes and other financial gains.

Both the deficits are linked. Under heavy fiscal deficit government borrows from credit market and then from foreign sources. It will lead to appreciation of currency and exports become expensive while imports become cheaper. Thus, further fuelling the trade deficit. India suffers from a twin account deficit.

Comparison Chart- Physical change and Chemical change

BASIS FOR COMPARISONPHYSICAL CHANGECHEMICAL CHANGE
MeaningPhysical change refers to a change in which the molecules are rearranged but their internal composition remains same.Chemical Change is a process in which the substance transforms into a new substance, having different chemical composition.
ExampleTearing of paper, melting/freezing of water, cutting of trees, etc.Burning of wood/trees/paper, rusting of iron, setting of curd, etc.
NatureReversibleIrreversible
Original matterCan be recoveredCannot be recovered
InvolvesChange in physical properties of the substance, i.e. shape, size, color etc.Change in chemical properties and composition of the substance.
Product FormationNo new product is formed.New product is formed.
EnergyAbsorption and evolution of energy do not take place.Absorption and evolution of energy take place, during reaction.

CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS

  • Any substance consisting of two or more different types of atoms (chemical elements) in a fixed proportion of its atoms (i.e., stoichiometry) can be termed a chemical compound.
  • Ionic compounds are compounds composed of ions, charged particles that form when an atom (or group of atoms, in the case of polyatomic ions) gains or loses electrons.
  • cationis a positively charged ion
  • An anionis a negatively charged ion.

UKPCS Science Chemistry: Compound vs Molecule#3

Oracle IAS, the best coaching institute for UPSC/IAS/PCS preparation in Dehradun brings to you UKPCS Science Chemistry (paper 6). 

What is the difference between a compound and a molecule?

  • A molecule is formed when two or more atoms join together chemically. A compound is a molecule that contains at least two different elements. All compounds are molecules but not all molecules are compounds.
  • Molecular hydrogen (H2), molecular oxygen (O2) and molecular nitrogen (N2) are not compounds because each is composed of a single element. Water (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) are compounds because each is made from more than one element. The smallest bit of each of these substances would be referred to as a molecule. For example, a single molecule of molecular hydrogen is made from two atoms of hydrogen while a single molecule of water is made from two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen.
