Ans:- Fuse is a device used to prevent any change being caused to circuit and electric appliance .

Uses of fuse:-

Whenever there is shoring or appliances are used beyond the current estimation in domestic circuits than the fuse blows. This is because current flow is very large. This saves the appliances and the circuit from damage.

Q 23 (1) What are the components of blood?

(2) Why is blood needed by all the parts of a body?

Ans:- (1) there are four components of the blood:

(a)     Plasma is the liquid part of the blood which is yellowish in color and contains 90 percent water. It contains food, enzymes, wastes and proteins etc.
(b)   Red blood cells (RBCs) are disc shaped cells containing red-colored pigments called hemoglobin in it. Hemoglobin helps in transportation of oxygen.
(c)    White blood cells (WBC’s) are the fighting cells, which protect us against bacteria and foreign material causing infections.
(d)   Platelets help in clothing of the blood.

(2) Blood is needed by all parts of the body because it contains the digested food and oxygen in it. It supplies the digested food to various parts of the body and provide essential energy to the. This energy helps the body to perform various functions and activities. It also carries away the waste products.

Q 24. Explain the factors responsible for the depletion of water table?

Ans:- These are four main causes of depletion of water table.

(1)    Increasing population:- increasing population creates demand for construction of houses, shops, offices, roads and playgrounds. This in turn, decreases the seepage of rain water into the ground. Moreover a huge amount of water is required for construction work. Often groundwater is used for this purpose. So, on the hand we are consuming more groundwater, on the other we are allowing lesser water to seep into the ground this results in depletion of water table.
(2)    Increasing industries:- Water is used by all the industries. Almost everything that we use process. The number of industries is increasing continuously. Water used by most of the industries is drawn from the around.
(3)    Agricultural activities:- A majority of farmers in India depend upon rains for irrigating their crops. Irrigation system such canals are there only in a few places. Even these systems may  suffer from lack of water due to erratic rainfall. Therefore farmers have to use groundwater for irrigation. Population pressure on agriculture forces increasing use of groundwater day by day. This results in depletion of water table.
(4)    Lack of water conservation techniques:- Main source of water on earth and for the underground water is the rain. The water of the rain, if conserved can increase the water level. But this is not done due to the lack of rain water harvesting techniques and other water conservation techniques.

Q 25. Describe the steps in getting clarify water from waste water.

Ans:- Water is treated physically, chemically and biologically in waste water treatment plant. Following steps are involved in the purification of water:

(1)    At first stage all the physical impurities like stones, rags, napkins, plastic bags, cans, packets etc are removed. It is done by passing the water through bar screens.
(2)    Then water is taken to frit and sand removal tank where impurities are removed by sedimentation.
(3)    Solid impurities and faces etc are collected from the bottom of the water. These solid impurities collected are called sludge. Water is cleared of floatable solids like oil and grease.
(4)    Clarified water is cleared of other impurities by aerator. All disease causing bacteria released in various water bodies.
