 SOURCE = The main thing from which a resource is
made.
Example: COTTON is used to make cotton clothes.
In this sentence cotton is a source.
 RESOURCE = Anything that can be used to satisfy a
need.
Example: We use RICKSHAW to reach home.
In this sentence rickshaw is a resource.

VALUE
VALUE
 UTILITY = A resource which is in the form of object or
substance.
Example: Rickshaw, bus, electricity, water etc.
 VALUE = Value means worth. Things become resources
only when they have a value.
 Some resources have economical value.
 EXAMPLE OF ECONOMICAL VALUE
Grandmother’s home remedies have no commercial value
today. But if they are patented and sold by a medical firm,
they could become economical valuable.

 Resources drawn from nature and used without
modification is called natural resources.
 Many of the resources are free gift of nature and can be
used directly.
 Technology may not be needed to use a natural
resource in the best possible way.

Resource
 ACTUAL RESOURCE = Resources whose quantity is
known and used in present.
Example: The rich deposits of coal in Ruhr region of
Germany.
 POTENTIAL RESOURCE = Resource whose quantity is
not known and used in the future.
Example : High speed winds were a potential resource
two hundred years ago. Today they are actual resource
and wind farms generate energy using windmills like
in Netherlands.
NATURAL RESOURCE

ABIOTIC
BIOTIC
 ABIOTIC = Abiotic resources are non living.
Example : Rock, minerals, soil etc.
 BIOTIC = Biotic resources are living.
Example : Plants and animals.

RESOURCE
NATURAL
RESOURCES
 RENEWABLE RESOURCE = Resources which can be
renewed or replenished quickly. These are unlimited
resource.
Example : Solar, wind energy and energy.
Water seems to be unlimited renewable resources.
 NON RENEWABLE RESOURCE = Resources which
cannot be renewed or replenished quickly. Once the
stock is exhausted, it takes thousand years to be
renewed.
Example : Petroleum, coal etc.

UBIQU
ITOUS
 UBIQUITOUS = Resources which are found
everywhere.
Example : Air
 LOCALISED = Resources that are found in certain
place.
Example : Copper and iron ore.
NOTES
 The distribution of natural resources depends upon
number of physical factors like terrain, climate and
altitude.
 The distribution of natural resources is unequal
because these factors differ so much over the earth.
People use natural resources to make buildings, bridges,
roads, machinery and vehicles which are known as
human made resources.
People are human resources. Education and health help
in making people a valuable resource.
Improving the quality of people’s skill so that they are
able to create more resources known as human
resource development.
 RESOURCE CONSERVATION : Using the resource
carefully and giving them time to get renewed is called
resource conservation.
 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT : Carefully utilizing
resource so that besides meeting the requirements of
the present, also takes care of future generation.
NOTES
The future of our planet and its people is linked with our
ability to maintain and preserve the life support
system that nature provides. Therefore it’s our duty to
ensure that –
 All uses of renewable resources are sustainable.
 The diversity of life on the earth is conserved.
 The damage to natural environment system is
minimized.
