Sol. More significant improvements to the steam engine were made by Scottish engineer and inventor James Watt in 1763. So due to this reason he is regarded as the inventor of the steam engine. 

Sol.  Tata institute of Fundamental Research which Homi Bhabha founded on 1st June 1945 with the support from the Sir Dorabji Tata. It is located in Mumbai.

Sol. The National Chemical Laboratory (CSIR-NCL), Pune was established in 1950 is a constituent laboratory of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). 

Sol. The Isotopes are a set of nuclides/atoms having the same number of protons, but a different number of neutrons. In other words, the same atomic number having different atomic mass. 

Sol. Monazite is an important ore for Thorium, Lanthanum and Cerium. India, Madagascar and South Africa have large deposits of monazite sands. 

Sol. Silver has the highest electrical conductivity of all metals.

Sol. An amalgam is a substance formed by the reaction of Mercury with another metal.

Sol. The carat(ct) is a unit of mass equal to 200 mg and is used for measuring gemstones and pearls.

Sol. Percentage of composition is the percentage by mass of each element present in a compound. 
In Water, H2O = 2 + 16 = 18 g/mol
molecular weight of water 18.0152 grams.
No. of Hydrogen atoms present in water = 2
∴ Percentage of Hydrogen in water
= 2/18×100=11.11%

Sol. Drinking water is described “hard” due to the presence of highly dissolved minerals specifically sulphates  and chlorides of Calcium and Magnesium . It is very difficult to wash clothes with hard water is it require more soap and leaves a messy scum that cannot be washed out easily.
