Specialized Epithelial Tissue

Specialized Epithelial Tissue are a class of epithelial tissues that have very specific and specialized functions and structures. This tissue is composed of cuboidal, columnar, ciliated columnar epithelial cells. These are following types: Ciliated Specialized Epithelium This tissue is composed of long, elongated columnar epithelial cells. Each cell bears numerous cilia at the free surface, i.e. known as brush border.

Stratified or Compound Epithelial Tissues

The surface of our body and internal organs is subjected to wear, tear and injury. To protect the inner tissues, the outer lining of the body and organs is covered by a specialized group of cells called epithelium. Epithelial tissues can contain a single layer of cells (Simple Epithelium) or many layers(Stratified Epithelium).

Simple Epithelial Tissues

The surface of our body and internal organs is subjected to wear, tear and injury. To protect the inner tissues, the outer lining of the body is covered by a specialized group of cells called epithelium.

Archimedes’ Principle

When a stone is immersed in a bucket completely filled with water, some amount of water spill out of the bucket. The weight of water displaced (spilled) from the bucket can be explained by Archimedes principle.

Monocot Stem

Those plants whose seed contains only one cotyledon or embryonic leaf is known as monocotyledon or simply monocot. In this section, you will learn about characteristics and anatomy of monocot stem. Visit this page to learn about dicot stem.

Dicot stem

Those plants whose seed contains two cotyledon or embryonic leaf is known as dicotyledon or simply dicot. In this section, you will learn about characteristics and anatomy of dicot stem. Visit this page to learn about monocot stem.

Bragg’s Law

Bragg’s law was first proposed by Sir William Bragg and his son Sir Lawrence Bragg. They studied about the diffraction of X-rays and devised a method for determining the wavelength of X-rays.
