Advances in Postharvest Technologies of Vegetable Crops

release date: Mar 31, 2021
Advances in Postharvest Technologies of Vegetable Crops
This book presents a selection of innovative postharvest management practices for vegetables. It covers technologies in harvesting, handling, and storage of vegetables, including strategies for low-temperature storage of vegetables, active and smart packaging of vegetables, edible coatings, application of nanotechnology in postharvest technology of vegetable crops, and more. It considers most of the important areas of vegetable processing while maintaining nutritional quality and addressing safety issues. Fruits and vegetables are important sources of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and bioactive compounds, which provide many health benefits. However, due to poor postharvest management--such as non-availability of cold chain management and low-cost processing facilities, large quantities of vegetables perish before they reach the consumer. Furthermore, higher temperatures in some regions also contribute to an increased level of postharvest losses. With chapters written by experts in the postharvest handling of vegetable, this volume addresses these challenges. It is devoted to presenting both new and innovative technologies as well as advancements in traditional technologies.

AP Physics C

release date: Apr 05, 2020
AP Physics C
Gain mastery over every type of question on the two units of 1. Electrostatics and 2. Conductors, Capacitors, Dielectrics that you are ever likely to find in the AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism exam. This becomes plausible because of the judicious way ''AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism, 2020 Edition: 100 Must-Know Questions in 1. Electrostatics 2. Conductors, Capacitors, Dielectrics With Answers and Explanations'' is laid out. First step that assures complete coverage is the division of the two units into topics (eight in all) that coincide with those specified in the Course Framework updated by the College Board for 2019-20. Secondly, careful analysis of the exam questions and related information issued by the College Board from time to time coupled with vast teaching experience of the author has assured the inclusion of virtually all question types for each of these eight topics. Salient features of the book: - 100 AP-level questions (90 Multiple Choice and 10 Free Response Questions) pertaining to the aforementioned two units that together comprise 40-51% of the complete AP Physics C exam. - Answers and Detailed Explanations: The questions listed in the first part of the book are each followed by Answer Key and Detailed Explanations in the second part of the book. - Complete derivations of results: For answering the Physics C exam questions, students require a far deeper understanding of the concepts as compared to other easier exams, where, quite often, knowledge of the final results alone suffices. Keeping this in mind, we have always included, at appropriate places, complete derivations of the result being used to arrive at the answer. This will also help students recall an important component of the theory part that they would have studied otherwise. - Improvement of students'' areas of difficulty: The division of questions into eight topics has the added advantage of allowing the students to easily find and improve upon those parts that they find difficult to grasp. - Also useful for calculus-based Physics courses: Even though the book is designed for AP Physics C exam, it can be equally useful for students taking calculus-based Physics courses. ******************************************************************* About the Author Sudhir K.

High School Physics

release date: May 08, 2020
High School Physics
The series High School Physics: Master It With Ease has been written for all school students who get their first systematic exposure to the topics of the series, which, in most places, happens at high school (or secondary school) level. The present book, which is the first volume of the series, deals with the topic of Current Electricity at introductory level. With almost two decades of experience of teaching the subject both at university level and at school-leaving level, the author has strong credentials to understand and mitigate students'' difficulties. He firmly believes that at the formative stage of first exposure to a subject, the students should not be left with any gaps or doubts in their understanding. Accordingly, he has tried to furnish the books with with a variety of pedagogical perspectives and wealth of testing material - normal and higher order, numerical and objective - for students to hone their grasp of the fundamentals. Some novel features of the books include: - Sub-topics of main topic: In general, a main topic of a chapter introduces and discusses several new and different ideas. While teaching in the class, experienced teachers of physics intuitively divide the main topic into sub-topics, each of which deals with a single well defined idea. We follow this approach and after explicit breakup, develop each discrete idea of a sub-topic to an appropriate detail. The discussion is further supported by a number of properly labelled diagrams and tables. - Teaching by solved examples: The book contains a plethora of solved examples each one of which is accompanied by a mention of the precise subtopic on which it is based. - Practice, practice, practice: Each chapter contains a large corpus of carefully designed exercises. Exercises requiring numerical calculations and those requiring subtle higher order thinking are marked explicitly. These exercises contain a broad range of objective-type questions as well. They include ''Multiple Choice type (MCQs)'', ''Fill in the Blanks type'', ''True or False type'', ''Matching type'' and ''Quiz type'' questions. Ample answers, hints and solutions to all these exercises are provided to help students achieve maximum elucidation of each topic. - Inclusion of Activities: In order to encourage ''Learning by Doing''; a number of activities are included in many chapters. Each activity can easily be performed by the students by using commonly available material in their homes and school-labs. - Useful ''Question Bank'' A ''Question Bank'' in the question- answer format is included at the end of the book. It contains a large collection of most such questions as find favor with the examiners. Students can use them for revision and consolidation of their studies as well as to learn how to answer different types of questions during their exams. With all these features, the book is expected to be self-contained textbook, which will benefit students both during self-study as well as for homework and exam work throughout their introductory phase of learning physics. ********************************************************************************** About the Author Sudhir K.

Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering

release date: Dec 04, 2013
Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering
The goal of this textbook is to provide first-year engineering students with a firm grounding in the fundamentals of chemical and bioprocess engineering. However, instead of being a general overview of the two topics, Fundamentals of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering will identify and focus on specific areas in which attaining a solid competency is desired. This strategy is the direct result of studies showing that broad-based courses at the freshman level often leave students grappling with a lot of material, which results in a low rate of retention. Specifically, strong emphasis will be placed on the topic of material balances, with the intent that students exiting a course based upon this textbook will be significantly higher on Bloom’s Taxonomy (knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis and synthesis, evaluation, creation) relating to material balances. In addition, this book also provides students with a highly developed ability to analyze problems from the material balances perspective, which leaves them with important skills for the future. The textbook consists of numerous exercises and their solutions. Problems are classified by their level of difficulty. Each chapter has references and selected web pages to vividly illustrate each example. In addition, to engage students and increase their comprehension and rate of retention, many examples involve real-world situations.

Psychology for the Beginers

release date: Mar 30, 2013
Psychology for the Beginers
Everyone is a psychologist, because to some extent, we can study the behaviour of others and we all use the terms, concepts and principles of psychology either knowingly or unknowingly in our every day-to-day life and probably don''t even realise it. In each and every moment of our lives, we speak on psychology and apply its terms and concepts whenever required. We praise or reward our children, when they behave according to our needs or obey the norms, regulations, rules and ethos of society and spank our children for doing something wrong; in general, we are adopting the learning principle of punishment. When we get nervous right before we have to give speech before large audience, we are activating our autonomic nervous system and we develop confidence and mentally become prepared to face it. When we talk to ourselves in our heads, telling ourselves to ''calm down, '' ''work harder, '' or ''give up, '' we are adopting cognitive approaches to change our behaviours and emotions and so on. This text is designed to appraise a general idea of what psychology is and various concepts and issues of psychology that can be applied to help improve people''s lives. The first part is confined to the understanding psychology, historical genesis and perspectives developed in the field of psychology to study and understand behaviour and the second part very briefly introduces the historical and major events took place in the field of psychology. This text is designed to make a layman''s understanding of psychology. It is presented in reader-friendly manner so that one can gain a better insight of all of the major concepts, events and contributions made by leaders in psychology. It is visualised that learner will learn a lot, however, and hopefully the he or she will increase not only his or her knowledge base, but also his or her interests in adopting psychological principles, terms and concepts in his or her day-to-day life. It is designed in a self-help format to improve the understanding of human mind and behaviour. It is expected that one may find that at least some of his/her preconceptions about psychology will be challenged and changed, and one will learn that psychology is a field that will provide him/her with new ways of thinking about his/her own thoughts, feelings, and actions in his/her day-today-lives.

Aseptic Processing of Foods Containing Solid Particulates

release date: Mar 22, 2002
Aseptic Processing of Foods Containing Solid Particulates
The emerging technology of aseptic processing of particulate foods promises lower packaging costs and higher food quality and safety. The process, however, has yet to be regulated, and the majority of the innovative research performed in the past decade remains uncollected. Aseptic Processing of Foods Containing Solid Particulates fills this void, providing students and industry professionals a reference on how the continuous sterilization of particulate foods may be accomplished. The fundamental challenge of the method is simple: how to determine the temperature within a freely flowing solid piece (particle) entrained in a viscous fluid stream, considering that the fluid and solid must achieve uniform composition at outlet, and that the solid is of significant size. Aseptic Processing thoroughly incorporates the three disciplines intimately involved with this question: engineering, microbiology, and statistics. Drawing on a pair of landmark conferences, the text details critical experiments conducted with an eye toward developing uniform parameters for operation. Specific topics covered include: -Flow and residence time distributions of solid-liquid mixtures -Fluid-solid convective heat transfer -Statistical design and analysis and microbiological validation -Hazard analysis and critical control point evaluation of a multiphase food product aseptic system -The filing process for FDA approval An indispensable companion to the work and studies of engineers and university personnel, Aseptic Processing of Foods Containing Solid Particulates brings the level of scholarship equal to the level of enthusiasm for this potentially groundbreaking system.
