Natural resources

Natural resource is a source of supply generally held in reserve. For human being it is essential for their survival and prosperity as in the form of energy. The natural resources are the components of the atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere. There are two types of natural resources they are inorganic and organic.


Inorganic containing water, mineral fuels, ores, stones and air.


It comprising plants, animals, microbes and their products.

Other than this classification it is classified again on the basis of abundance and availability. They are inexhaustible and exhaustible.

1. Inexhaustible; These are present widely and can not be exhausted by man's consumption. For example air, clay, sunlight etc. But air can polluted due to higher population, and we are not utilising our sun energy source maximum.
2. Exhaustible; These are likely to be exhausted by human also it is divided in to renewable and non-renewable. Renewable resources are those continuously consumed by living animals but it will renewed by nature. Non renewable resources are those can not replaced or recycled after use. Also time taking materials also calculated as non renewable. For example fossil fuels, petroleum, minerals and other. Now our petrol, fossil fuels are facing a problem and due to the consumption our energy source is decreasing.
