FOLK MUSIC

Actually, classical music is music that was composed between 1750 and 1830, but today any serious, more permanent music than popular or light music is called “classical” music. At concerts this kind of music is usually played by a symphony orchestra, that is, a team of musicians playing together.

Classical music is only one kind of music. There are many different styles of music today. Long ago, people did not have television or radio, so they had fun by getting together and singing and dancing. The music they made was called ‘folk music’. It was music that belonged to a specific country or group of people in a country - their traditional music. The old people taught their songs and dances to their children who in turn passed it on to their children. Folk instruments were usually cheap and easy to carry. Here are some sketches of folk instruments:

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
