Department of Basic Science

History of the Department:

Science has made a lot of wonders in the world. The great advancements made by science have shrunken the world by providing great comforts to mankind. The whole universe can be considered as interconnected web of entire range of surroundings, activities, living-beings and non-livings and there is inherent causality pervasive in the interdependent components of the universe. The need of science education has to make the learners understand, explore and delve into this fascinating web of causality and basic sciences play an important role in this study.

The department of Basic Sciences was established in 2010. The department is currently headed by Dr. Anita Rani. The mission of the department is to generate human resource of excellent quality with high professional competence in different streams of science encompassing Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. The department offers undergraduate courses - B.Sc( Medical and Non-Medical ). The department labs are furnished with ultramodern equipments The students are provided a comprehensive practical exposure to the various instrumental techniques required for their courses. In the beginning, the strength of students was 35. Due to outstanding academic results of all the Classes, the students strength has been increasing tremendously. Different academic activities especially classroom seminars are carried out throughout the year. The departmental library has a rich collection of text books and reference books. The feedback from the students is taken by conducting regular tests. The students are given opportunities to participate in the departmental academic events and other cultural activities.

 

 

Physics laboratory

Department of Basic Sciences has well-equipped under-graduate and post graduate In addition, there is separate Optics laboratory for carrying out different experiments. Under-Graduation lab contains large number of equipments related to Physics experiments like Spectrophotometer, G.M. counter ,Oscillators, C.R.O., DSO, Pendulum ,sextant ,young’s modulus ,Poisson ratio , Desauty Bridge  , Carey foster bridge, PN junction, Zener diode, Anderson bridge, hall effect, modulation and demodulation   etc. Post-Graduation lab contains equipments like astable and monostable multivibrators, RLC resonance apparatus, Semiconductor band gap, flip flops, logic gates, experimentation with diode, Frequency modulation and demodulation, amplitude modulation and demodulation, ultrasonic measurements, clipper and clamper, four probe apparatus, Colpitt oscillator, hall effect, Planck’s constant, Fresnel biprism, sodium lamp and power supply, hybrid parameters, hysteresis loop, electronic kits etc.

To attain better understanding of optics and laser, there is separate dark room. Here all apparatus like Polarimeter, laser Sources, Planck’s constant, spectrometer, flashing and quenching of neon bulb, hydrogen gas discharge tube, ionization potential of mercury etc. are available.

Chemistry laboratory

Chemistry laboratory is well-established and equipped with number of instruments like Distillation plant, Conductivity cell, Centrifuge Machine, Calorimeter (digital), Beckmann Apparatus, Electronic Balance, Mechanical Stirrer, Fuming Hood, Oven, Electrical Melting Point Apparatus, Hot plate, Spectrophotometer, Vacuum pump, Shaker with six plates, Refractometer Atomic model, Analytical Balances, etc., chemicals and glass apparatus such as Stalgomometers, Viscometers, pippetes, burretes, measuring cylinders, condensers, reagent bottles, flasks etc. are present in lab.

Botany laboratory

Botany lab is well-equipped with instruments like student & binocular microscopes, dissecting microscopes, hot air oven, weighing balance, simple potometer, respirometer, Ganong’s respirometer, clinostat, etc. There are multiple copies of preserved plant specimens belonging to different categories and phyla as Algae, Fungi, Bryophytes, Pteridophytes, Gymnosperms, and Angiosperms for studying the morphology and anatomy of different plants. For better understanding of students, charts depicting structure, function and life cycles of various genera are used while teaching. Permanent slides showing the internal structures of the all the plant groups help the students have an in-depth understanding. Hands on training are given to all the students for performing various experiments. Audio-visual aids are used to give a better understanding to the students about the fascinating world of plants.

An important feature of the department is its well laid out ‘Botanical garden’ with sound irrigation facilities and zigzag paths. The plant wealth of the garden includes different plants having medicinal, ethical and ecological values belonging to different families of Angiosperms and Gymnosperms. Each plant is provided with name plate giving information about botanical name, family and uses. Additionally, a pond containing hydrophytes and net house covering shade-loving plants is also present in the territory of Botanical garden. With the help of expert teachers, students explore different localities and collect wild plants to prepare herbarium files. Vermi-compost unit is under way for the utilization of the vegetable waste of the College Campus.

Zoology laboratory

The Zoology lab is equipped with ultramodern instruments like spectrophotometer, incubator, binocular microscopes, electronic weighing balance, water bath, digital pH meter, etc. for giving clear practical knowledge to the students. There is a vast range of specimens of organisms of different phyla and classes in well established ‘Museum’. The high resolution microscopes help in studying the minute details of the organisms. The histological slides help in having a detail idea of structure of various tissues. Various kinds of bones of different animals are available in the lab for studying detailed osteology. Many experiments related to blood physiology and biochemistry are also performed by students to get the clear conception of theoretical aspects. The department uses audio-visual aids for demonstration of dissections of various animals. Various educational visits are organized to places of interest to get practical idea of behavior of animals.
