In the 2017-18 season, there are 10 different teams participating for the coveted title. The top four teams will qualify for the semifinals and the winner of the finals is also guaranteed a place in the AFC Cup. In the past seasons many world class players like Alessandro Del Piero, Marco Materazzi, Roberto Carlos, Zico, Luis Garcia, Diego Forlan, Florent Malouda, Nicolas Anelka, Robert Pires, Robbie Keane and even Dimitar Berbatov, who are some football legends to have graced this competition as either players or coaches.

The competition has amazing Indian stars too and it is a great way of getting to know about the rising talents in this country. As of 2017, the 10 teams playing in the league include-

  • Delhi Dynamos
  • Mumbai City FC
  • Chennaiyin FC
  • Atletico De Kolkata
  • FC Goa
  • Jamshedpur FC
  • Bengaluru FC
  • Kerala Blasters
  • Northeast United FC
  • Pune City FC

HISTORY



The ISL was founded by the Reliance Foundation in 2013. The first season of Hero ISL was held in 2014. A total of eight teams participated in this competition. Atletico De Kolkata won the title by defeating Kerala Blasters led by David James in this season. In the next season Chennaiyin FC won a late goalscoring thriller in the final by defeating Zico's FC Goa. A rejuvenated Atletico De Kolkata won for the second time by edging out Kerala Blasters on penalties in 2016. 


IMPORTANT STATISTICS


Iain Hume remains the all time top scorer with 23 goals in the three seasons. He also played the most number of games in this tournament till date. Iain Hume was also the Hero of the League in 2014. Stiven Mendoza of Chennaiyin FC's star-studded champions was named the Hero of the League in 2015.  On the other hand, former Chelsea player Florent Malouda remains as the tournaments all time most assists. He was the Hero of the League in 2016. Atletico De Kolkata versus Chennaiyin FC recorded the highest ever attendance of 68,340 at the Salt Lake Stadium in 2015.

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
