    Meerut - A Geographical Analysis Meerut is a metropolitan city in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It is an ancient city located 70 km (43 mi)

    northeast of the national capital New Delhi, and 453 km (281 mi) northwest of the state capital, Lucknow. It is the

    second largest city in the National Capital Region of India (the largest being Delhi), the 16th largest metropolitan

    area and 17th largest city in India. It ranked 292 in 2006 and 242 in 2010 in the list of largest cities and urban

    areas in the world and is the second fastest developing city in Uttar Pradesh (after Noida). The city covers an area

    of about 172 km2 (66 sq mi) while the total metropolitan area is 198 km2 (76 sq mi), third largest in Uttar Pradesh

    after Lucknow and Kanpur. It has the 2nd largest army cantonment in the country.

    Meerut has a monsoon influenced humid subtropical climate characterized by very hot summers and cool winters.

    Summers last from early April to late June and are extremely hot, with temperatures reaching 43 C (109 F). The

    monsoon arrives in late June and continues till the middle of September. Temperatures drop slightly, with plenty of

    cloud cover but with higher humidity. Temperatures rise again in October and the city then has a mild, dry winter

    season from late October to the middle of March Lowest temperature recorded is 0.5 C (32.9 F) Rainfall is about

    80 cm to 100 cm per annum, which is suitable for growing crops. Most of the rainfall is received during

    the monsoon. Humidity varies from 30 to 100%.

    Meerut is famously associated with the Indian Rebellion of 1857 against the British East India Company.[19]The

    famous slogan "Dilli Chalo" ("Let's march to Delhi!") was first raised here. Meerut cantonment is the place where

    the rebellion started when Hindu and Muslim soldiers were given rifle cartridges rumored to have a coating made of

    animal fat.

    The city is one of the largest producers of Scissors, Sports goods, and the largest producer of musical instruments

    in India.

    Scissors

    The Product A Functional Analysis

    Scissor is a cutting device which is used to cut various materials. It is made up of two blades which rotate on an

    axis against each other and divide the placed material in two parts. Scissors function when two blades under

    tension are closed against one another.

    Scissors are probably some of the first tools a person learns to use. Children can amuse themselves for hours

    cutting shapes out of construction paper. It's a safe bet that most people use scissors for something several times

    a week, if not every day.

    Scissors are cutting tools. They have to cut - always evenly, without problems, and with a minimum of effort.

    1. Friction and twist

    Tension between the blades is in essence achieved through a slight bowing of the blades. In technical terms the

    blades are in friction mode to one another. This means that there is an arching in the blades towards the inside of

    the scissors. In addition both blades are turned along the side towards the cutting edge. In technical terms this is

    known as "twist". Friction and twist create such a force on the point of convergence of the cutting edge that the

    material gives and is severed.

    2. Sharpness

    What is usually called "sharpness" is technically defined as the angle of the cutting edge. The smaller the angle of

    the cutting edge - technical term the bevel or edge - the sharper the scissors will be. The disadvantage is that the

    more acute the angle, the greater the instability of the edge, and the scissors will dull faster. Therefore the shape

    and type of cutting edge are paramount in the manufacture of scissors. Grinding the cutting edge of their scissors

    at a variety of different angles depending on their final application. Finally there is the precision grinding of the

    cutting edge. Through this process microscopic flaws on the edge are completely eliminated. A straight edge is

    "sharper" than a ragged one. The cutting process is further enhanced through the wedge shape of the blade, which

    allows the material to glide away and thus magnify the sharpness.
