Q:

Dust particles in the air of large industrial cities are removed by 

A) Sedimentation B) Electrophoresis
C) Tyndall effect D) Brownian movement

Answer:   B) Electrophoresis



Explanation:

Dust particles such as coal dust(smoke) are fine particle of a solid (carbon in the case of smoke) dispersed in air. They are colloidal systems and the particles are charged either positive or negative. In an applied electrical field, they are attracted towards the opposite electrodes. Movement of the particles towards the electrodes is known as 'electrophoresis'. Hence electrophoresis is applied to remove smoke within the chimeny itself without allowing it to escape into the air and cause nuisance.

Q:

ATP stands for -

A) Adenosine triphosphate B) Alanine triphosphate
C) Adrenalin triphosphate D) Asparagine triphosphate
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Adenosine triphosphate

Explanation:

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a nucleotide which is also called as nucleoside triphosphate is a small molecule used in cells as a coenzyme. It is often referred to as the "molecular unit of currency" of intracellular energy transfer. ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism. Most of the cellular functions need energy in order to be carried out such as synthesis of proteins, synthesis of membranes, movement of the cell, cellular division, transport of various solutes etc. The ATP is the molecule that carries energy to the place where the energy is needed. When ATP breaks into ADP (adenosine diphosphate) and Pi (phosphate), the breakdown of the last covalent link of phosphate liberates energy that is used in reactions where it is needed.
