In the second part we look at why we need detergents and how they are different from soaps and finally in the third part we explore the effects of using detergents on the environment.

‘Mathematics Mela’ was an alien and unimaginable word to me before this was held in our school. Generally schools arrange science exhibition or science mela where children display things that take place in day to day life and are also connected with principles of science.
