Emelents of a smart phone by omar khan

before we begin, i will answer question 1 to 5 in the three topics,electronics, screen and battery. and 6 to 7 in the final paragraphs.

hello there! today i am going to talk about what elements a smart phone is made up of (three main parts of it specifically), the battery, electronics that run the phone and the touch screen.


in electronics, your smartphone is dominated by transition metals (copper, silver, gold, titanium, and nickel) mostly used for wiring, micro electrical components, and micro capacitors. Also used are lathanides,(any of the series of fifteen metallic elements from lanthanum to lutetium in the periodic table),mostly used for the microphone,speakers , electrical connections and many more. anything mentioned untill now is reusable and not that hazardous.al these metals are mostly mined in south africa, mexico and many parts in europe.they are very durable and have a very long life span.


I could not find a photo of an iphone battery sadly but i know that it is a mixture of many elements (lithium, carbon,oxygen , cobalt, and aluminum), for the battery and in most phones lithium ions are used because they are really effective and more cheap than many other things. lithium is very dangerous unlike the other elements and is hardly reused.the other elements are reused alot and are not so hazardous.


screens of many smart phones are made up of mostly group 13 and 14 elements, lanthanides and oxygen. Inidium ,tin, and oxygen are used for the touch screen,to strengthen the screen, oxygen,potassium, silicon, and aluminum are used,for the colour of the smartphone, many lanthanides are used as well as some yttrium. these elements just mentioned are not very hazardous and can be easily reused and are long lasting.

now we shall discuss question 6 and 7.

question 6

the highest usage rates for smartphones occur in the united arab emirates,with about 91% of phones being bought.

what are the scocietal, enviromental, and economic pros and cons of your device?

first I will go over the pros: Smartphones make it much easier for employers and their employees to keep in touch. Beyond simple voice calling, most smartphones support instant messaging across several popular programs, as well as email. Supported social networking services such as Facebook and Twitter can also be used to organize employees for company events and foster communication between departments.Many smartphones come with a wide number of tools that can greatly increase your productivity. Maps, calendars, comprehensive contact lists with detailed information -- all are readily available at your fingertips and often are capable of being synced with your computers and any information on them. Many smartphones also support turn-by-turn GPS directions to help you on course for business travel. Applications are also frequently employed that are specific to a business, allowing employees to access information while on an off-site job, at home or en route to or from work.As smartphones evolve, technology evolves to keep pace with them. As technology improves, new functions are added that increase the productivity capabilities of smartphones. Software engineering firms also see a boost in demand, leading to greater job creation. Smartphone manufacturers will also need companies to fabricate their products, leading other companies to increased demand and job creation.

now the cons: The downside to the productivity and communication tools that smartphones provide is that employees are always connected to their work. With work-specific apps, the ability to connect with co-workers and employees at all times, and the ability to transfer data, it's very easy for your work to swiftly dominate your life with a smartphone. Such exhausting constant contact can lead to low morale, poor productivity and malaise in your workforce.The smartphone's useful tools are contrasted by the bevy of endless ways you can mindlessly occupy time. Games, social networking applications, videos, and fully functional Web surfing are a few examples. The modern smartphone can easily consume your entire day if allowed and produce almost nothing of value for it. Employees can easily idle away an entire shift instead of focusing on the task at hand.The dark side of constant innovation is the constant rendering of older units as obsolete. As each generation of smartphone comes out, older systems become increasingly under-supported. This necessitates users purchasing a new phone every two years or so just to keep up with current technology -- a decidedly expensive venture for a company looking to equip their entire workforce with smartphones.

here is a video covering this whole topicof what elements your phone is made up of.
