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 thepressurewas decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.

Android Versions Named After Sweet

Have you ever thought why are Android versions always named after sweet names ??

Everytime a new Android version is launched its name is kept after a sweet name. Many people have researched about this topic and many have asked Google also. Have you ever tried to find out the core reason behind this? If not then you would find the answer here .

First of all let us first see what Google says about this :

In 2008 i.e. the year when Android was launched a reporter asked the reason for the same. At that time Google said

“It’s kind of like an internal team thing, and we prefer to be a little bit — how should I say — a bit inscrutable in the matter, I’ll say,” said Randall Sarafa, a Google spokesman. “The obvious thing is that, yeah, the Android platform releases, they go by dessert names and by alphabetical order for the most part."



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 KnowSome 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 in illumination. This helped to determine the path …

Pokemon Go 0.33.0

All Pokemon go fans get ready because again the latest version of Pokemon go is out. The Niantic has released a new version of Pokemon go i.e. 0.33.0.The size of the new version is 61.48MB.


SETS, RELATIONS & FUNCTIONS

SETS, RELATIONS & FUNCTIONSSets are a fundamental part of mathematics and it’s knowledge is very important in present. It defines the concepts of relation and functions. These functions are also very essential for present day maths. SETSSets are denoted by capital letters. They are similar to matrices whose elements are denoted by small letters. But in sets an element comes only at once. Sets are matrices which give a sense of belonging. This sense of belongingness is represented by ∈ .We can write anything in a set like rivers of India, Wonders of the World .etc.  For an example let there be a set of positive single digit. Let the set be denoted as A Therefore, 8 ∈ A  Also we can write, 17 ∈ A Set can be represented by two types  ROSTERIn roster form we write elements in curly brackets and separate them with comma.  If there be set of positive integers less than 10. Therefore the set will be {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}  SET- BUILDER FORMIn set-builder form we take a variable x and then gives its…

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
