Introduction- Mind Map
Interaction-Introduction- Minerals (Pg.50 and 51)

Geologists define mineral as a “homogenous, naturally occurring substance with

a definable internal structure.” Minerals are found in varied forms in nature,
ranging from the hardest diamond to the softest talc.
Types of Minerals

a. Ferrous (containing iron): Iron
ore, manganese, nickel, cobalt, etc.
b. Non-ferrous: Copper, lead, tin, bauxite, etc.
c. Precious: Gold, silver, platinum, etc.
2. Non-metallic: Mica, salt, potash, sulphur, granite,
limestone, marble, sandstone, etc.

3. Energy Minerals: Coal, petroleum and natural gas

★ Lecture-Where are these minerals found?

(Pg.51) Minerals are usually found in “ores”.

Mode of occurrence of minerals:

● In igneous and metamorphic rocks

● In sedimentary rocks

● By decomposition of surface rocks

● As alluvial deposits

● In ocean water

★ Interaction- Hazards of Mining (Pg.56)
Mining is a hazardous industry; both for the workers and for
the residents. The Miners have to work under tough
conditions where no natural light is available. There is
always a risk of collapse of mine roof, inundation with
water and fire.

It takes millions of years for the formation of minerals.
Compared to the present rate of consumption, the
replenishment rate of minerals is very slow.

Energy can be generated from fuel minerals like coal,

petroleum, natural gas, uranium and from electricity.

A) Conventional Energy Resources (Pg. 58 and 60)

1. Coal

India is highly dependent on coal for meeting its

commercial energy requirements. Depending on the degree
of compression during its formation, there are varieties of

Bituminous coal
Anthracite coal

2. Petroleum
After coal, the next major energy resource in India is
petroleum. Petroleum is a major source of fuel for various

3. Natural Gas
Natural gas is found along with or without petroleum.
It is used as fuel and also as industrial raw material.
4. Electricity
Electricity is generated mainly by two methods; by
running water which drives hydro turbines and by
burning other fuels like coal, petroleum and natural gas
to drive turbines.

(Pg. 62 and 63)

B) Non-conventional Sources of Energy

The growing consumption of energy has resulted in the

country becoming increasingly dependent on fossil fuels
such as coal, oil and gas.

India is blessed with an abundance of sunlight, water,

wind and biomass. It has the largest programs for the
development of these renewable energy resources

1. Nuclear Energy

in a democracy.
• Is a group of people who come together to contest elections
and hold power in the government.

with the view of promoting the collective good.

support through elections.

components: Leaders
Parties contest elections.
Parties have different policies and programmes and
the voters choose from them. A party reduces a vast
multitude of opinions into a few basic positions which it
Parties play a decisive role in making laws for a
country. Laws are debated and passed in the
legislature by the members of the various political

• Written- Notes, Q1. State the various functions political

• Written- Notes

Interaction and Notes- How many parties should we

3 • have?

Only one party is allowed to control and run the
government. E.g., The Communist Party of China.
We cannot consider one-party system as a good option
because this is not a democratic option.
Two-party system
Power usually changes between two main parties. E.g., The
United States of America and the United Kingdom.
Only the two main parties have a serious chance of winning
majority of seats for forming the government.
Several other parties may exist, contest elections and win a
few seats in the national legislatures.
Multi-party system
Several parties compete for power, and more than two
parties have a reasonable chance of coming to power
on their own strength or in alliance with others. E.g., India
(The National Democratic Alliance, the United
Alliance and the Left Front).
The government is formed by various parties coming
together in a coalition.
This system allows a variety of interests and opinions to
enjoy political representation.
A multi-party system may often lead to political instability.
Party system evolves over a long time, depending on the nature
society, its social and regional divisions, its history of politics and
its system of elections.

its various drawbacks and advantages?
