English Premier League


The English Premier League (EPL) is an annual football league played in England which starts in August and ends in May. It is the most popular league and the most competitive league in the world.
It consists of 20 clubs in top flight English football. The first season took place in 1992/93 which was won by Manchester United. The most recent season was won by Leicester City which was the biggest shock ever. The most successful club in the PL is Manchester United with a jaw-dropping 13 titles. In the 2016/17 PL season the clubs participating are:





  • AFC Bournemouth
  • Arsenal 
  • Burnley
  • Chelsea 
  • Crystal Palace 
  • Everton 
  • Hull City 
  • Leicester City
  • Liverpool 
  • Manchester City 
  • Manchester United
  • Middlesbrough 
  • Southampton 
  • Stoke City
  • Sunderland 
  • Swansea City 
  • Tottenham Hotspurs 
  • Watford: Walter Mazzari
  • West Bromwich Albion 
  • West Ham United  


Qualification For UEFA Competitions



Out of the 20 clubs, the top-four teams qualify for the UEFA Champions League. The top three are directly qualified whereas the fourth placed team has to go through the qualification round.
The next two team, finishing fifth and sixth, qualify for the UEFA Europa League. Also, the winners of the FA Cup and EFL Cup also qualify for this league. But if the clubs who finished among the top four win these tournaments then the qualifications are passed to the seventh and eighth placed teams.


Relegation And Promotion




Also, the last three teams are relegated to the lower division whereas the top three teams from the lower division qualify for the EPL.


FA Community Shield


Before the new season of the Premier League begins, the winners of the EPL and FA Cup of the last season battle it out for supremacy in the FA Community Shield.


Transfer Window


The teams are allowed to buy new players, sell some players, give some players for a loan to other clubs. This process takes place only when the Transfer Window is open, from July to August and again in January. Once the Transfer Window is closed, no more deals can be completed.


Contracts


All the players and the managers sign for the club on contracts. They are paid their wages weekly by the respective club they represent. The players and the manager can extend their contracts or even terminate them. Sometimes, if the owner of the club is not happy with the team's performance he may sack the manager and look for a better replacement. The managers are not necessarily transferred during the Transfer Window. Unlike the players, they can be appointed any time.

Anode Ray Experiment

→Anode ray experiment was conducted by E Goldstein. →These rays are also known as canal rays. →This experiment helped in the discovery of the proton. Apparatus Used A discharge tube  was taken in which there were 2 electrodes i.e. Anode(+ve) and the cathode (-ve). The tube was filled with an inert gas. A perforated or porous cathode was used. A layer of zinc sulphide was placed at the back of the cathode. There was a vacuum pump in the tube. High voltage (5000v-10000v) was allowed to flow through the system. It was observed that when the gas was at 1atm(atmospheric pressure ) no change was seen in the tube.  When the   pressure   was decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.

Animal and Plant Cells

 Cells Cells are the basic functional, biological and structural unit of life. The word cell is a Latin word meaning ‘small room’. Cells are also known as building blocks of life.  The branch of science that deals with the form, structure, and composition of a cell is known as Cytology. All organisms around us are made up of cells. Bacteria, ameba, paramecium, algae, fungi, plants and animals are made up of cells.  Cells together form tissues. And tissue together makes an organ. History Of Cell The cell was discovered by Robert Hooke in 1665. He assembled a simple microscope and observed a very thin slice of cork under his primitive microscope. The cork was obtained from the outer covering of a tree called bark. Robert Hooke observed many little-partitioned boxes or compartments in the cork slice. These boxes appeared like a honey-comb. He termed these boxes as the cell. He also noticed that one box was separated from another by a wall. What Ho

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones

Isotopes These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass . They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same. But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different. As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons . Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.   Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.

Cathode Ray Experiment

This experiment was conducted by J.J. Thomson (Sir Joseph John Thomson) in the year 1897. This experiment proved that atom is made up of fundamental particles which are much smaller than the smallest atom 'hydrogen' This experiment helped to discover electron. According to J.J. Thomson, the cathode rays consisted of very light, small and negatively charged particles. He named the particles "corpuscles" which were later known as electrons

Levitation 2

LEVITATION II To be completely honest I was going to start this with a pun. I did think of one but it doesn’t float… I am sorry I just had to. Anyway, this is the second part to the article on super cool ways of making things levitate. Go check the first part out if you haven’t already. Actually, the first part may have become repulsive with all the magnets and stuff, but I promise this will be more attractive. Get it? No? I’ll stop now. I am just going to jump straight into it. 1.    Electrostatic Levitation I know you are probably sick and tired of magnets but they are the best way you know… This method is somewhat similar. You remember that cool science experiment you did with two straws attracting or repulsing each other based on their charge? So basically using the same principle we can make a charged object levitate. But before you try it, let me tell you it won’t be easy. Even impossible according to our Mr. Earnshaw. He even made a law (the law is

Pokemon Go 0.33.0

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment Hey, Guys, most of you might have heard about the alpha ray scattering experiment and if you want to know in detail about Rutherford's model and the experiment he conducted, this is the right place for you... But first: Things You Must Know Some basic information that will help you understand rutherford experiment properly: Proton is a sub-atomic particle which is positively charged and has a mass of 1u. Alpha particles are helium atom with a charge of +2 as they have lost 2 electrons. Alpha particles have an atomic mass  of 4u. Gold is highly malleable and can be beaten into very thin sheets. Experiment Rutherford conducted his experiment in the following way: Rutherford took a very thin gold foil and bombarded it with high energy alpha particles. He placed a layer of zinc sulphide on the walls where the experiment was taking place because when alpha particles strike zinc sulphide layer, it results i
