Adjustment is not important in life, but understanding is more important.
पति सारी रात गायब रहने के बाद सुबह घर पहुंचा…
पत्नी ने गुस्से में कहा – अब सुबह के सात बजे किसलिए आए हो?
पति – पागल औरत सुबह को किसलिए आते हैं, नाश्ता करने के लिए ना…⁉️🤜🏻🤜🏻✊🏻👋🏻💪🏻🥵?🤕🤒🥴
Why in India are the weights of LPG cylinders 14.2. Kg?*
Cylinder should be designed, manufactured and tested as per latest edition of IS-3196 (PART-I): 2006 & IS 3196 (PART III): 1991. Finished wall thickness of the cylinder shall not be less than 2.53mm.
Length of cylinder – 625 to 630 mm
Diameter – 314.4 to 317 mm
Water capacity 33.3ltr
Max working pressure – 16.9kgf/cm2
Test pressure – 25.35 kgf/cm2
Domestic cylinders will have their tare (empty) weight printed on them. The weight of the empty cylinder of 15.3kg is stamped into the neck ring + gas agencies should fill it with 14.2 kg LPG. ±150gm, to the empty gas cylinder weight to arrive at the 29.5kg (Approx) full gas cylinder weight.
Full Gas Cylinder Weight = Empty Gas Cylinder Weight (tare weight) + Domestic Gas Cylinder Weight of Contents.
Earlier the net weight of domestic LPG cylinder was 15 kilograms. This was decided based on the maximum weight a person can carry as per labor rules. When the Bureau of Indian Standards change the specifications (of max RVP) of LPG marketable in India, the weight had to be reduced to accommodate the total volume of LPG that can be filled in the cylinder (max 95% at 65°C). This had to be done as the Inventory of 15 kg LPG cylinders in circulation was very high and a recall was unviable.

🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
How does a simple microscope work?*
simple microscope works on the principle that when a tiny object is placed within its focus, a virtual, erect and magnified image of the object is formed at the least distance of distinct vision from the eye held close to the lens. The image of an object is magnified through at least one lens in the microscope. This lens bends light toward the eye and makes an object appear larger than it actually is.
