What's the difference between superphosphate and triple super phosphate fertilizer?..

Answer / paul christy

Superphosphate, 0-20-0, is made when rock phosphate is
treated with sulfuric acid to make calcium phosphate
(0-20-0) and calcium sulphate (gypsum.) Triple
Superphosphate, 0-46-0, is made by treating rock phosphate
with phosphoric acid. Triple Superphosphate has a much
higher phosphate content, as indicated by the 0-46-0
indicating 46% phosphate content. The benefit of the Triple
is that less needs to be used. However it costs more and
there is some evidence to suggest it ties up available
micronutrients (zinc, manganese, iron)in the soil requiring
the grower to supplement them.

What's the difference between superphosphate and triple super phosphate fertilizer?..

Answer / vishesh velani

The single super phosphate is treated with the sulfuric acid to form the calcium phosphate and the triple super phosphate is treated with the H3PO4 to make the phosphuric acid .

Answer / mithlesh kumar

superphosphate is made by the sulpuric acid and the super
phosphate is made of phosphoric acid.Also the single super
phosphate have the high phosphoric content as compare to
the supephosphate

MICROBIOLOGICAL ENGINEERING - QUESTION 28.3 : In the calculation of the growth of bacteria, absorbance, A in spectrophotometry is used. According to Beer-Lambert Law, A = e x l x c where A is the absorbance of the solution (no unit), l is the distance of light travels through the solution (in cm), e is the molar absorptivity or the molar extinction coefficient [ in L / (mol.cm) ]. For a particular solute and fixed path length : As / Ao = Cs / Co where Ao is the observed signal for a known concentration Co, and As is the observed signal for a sample concentration Cs. (a) For a cell concentration of 560 cells / mL, a spectrophotometre gives an absorbance reading of 1.0. A mixture of concentration 3600000 cells / mL can be diluted in several operations, with each operation having a dilution of 1:20. How many dilutions should be made so that the concentration of this mixture can be calculated within a range of A = 0.0 to 1.0. (b) In another experiment, a sample tube of 1 cm in width is used. Let A = 0.06 and e = 0.0012 ml / (cell.cm). Find the cell concentration of the sample.

Question 44 - In a non-dilute absorber, graphical method is used to represent the process. In an X - Y coordinate system, X-axis represents mole of carbon dioxide / mole of water and Y axis represents mole of carbon dioxide / mole of nitrogen. The inlet gas stream consists of 8 mol % of carbon dioxide in nitrogen. (a) Find the S / G minimum as a slope that goes through the point (0, 0.0304) and (0.0000488, 0.086957). (b) Find the actual slope of operating line when it is 1.5 times the S / G minimum! (c) Find the value of x for inlet gas stream when y = 1640 x, y is mole fraction of carbon dioxide in nitrogen.
