Classification of business activitie
The Primary Sector involves the extraction of raw materials, such as coal, wood and steel. A coal minor and a fisherman would be workers in the primary sector because a coal miner takes coal from the ground, and the fisherman would takes out the fishes from the sea. Secondary sector: Definition: The Secondary Sector involves the transformation of raw materials into goods e. g. manufacturing steel into cars. A builder and a dressmaker would be workers in the secondary sector because they produce the goods to be sold by the tertiary sector.
Tertiary Sector: Definition: The Tertiary Sector involves the provision of services to consumers and business, such as cinema and banking. A shopkeeper and an accountant would be workers in their tertiary sector because they are either selling a good or a service. B). In which classification would you place the coal industry: The coal industry goes into the primary business because it is mined from the ground and it is natural resources. c). suggest two or three local and national examples for each sector:
The primary sector is declining because there are less primary businesses and less resources then back in the days, for example fossil fuels and oil that cannot be renewable. Because of the primary sector is declining because lack of raw materials (e. g. coal and oil that cannot be renewable) Businesses are not interested in sectors that do not make profit therefore farms have been converted to holidays home. The secondary sector uses the raw materials so if the primary sector is declining then the secondary sector is too.
Machinery has taken over workers in primary and secondary sectors due to being more efficient and accurate in work. The tertiary sector involves proving services such as trade, tourism, education and banking. The tertiary sector is the sector that is growing more, it is because in the others two sectors (primary and secondary) the technology is the mostly used now. They are using machines to do the work that human used to do by hands. This sector is growing because the countries have become more developed and employ large numbers of UK workers.
(M) 2 A). has the employment in the industry increased or decreased since 1950? The employment in the industry has decreased since 1920 because they have machines to do the work, which used to get work done by the employees. B). How has demand for the coal changed since 1950? Suggest two reasons The demand for the coal has changed since 1950 because electricity has taken over and much of the electricity is now produced through either renewable energy or from nuclear power plants.
The second reason is that the factories are less dependence on coal and gas because natural gas is being imported from far countries such as Russia and Iran as a cheaper alternative. C). Has productivity increased or decreased in the coal industry since 1920? Productivity has increased in the industry since 1920 because before the average output in the 1920s was 200 tonnes person per year, which now has increased to 4,000 tonnes per person per year. D). Suggest one reason why this change has occurred.
This change has occurred due to technical advances, with better, efficient machinery and it is also cheaper because then they would have to pay wages to employee every month. E). How do you think this affects the price of coal- and why? (M2 part) This change would reduce the selling price of coal because there is less demand in the market for the coal and they are making too much. To sell the coal they are making, they have to sell it cheap so people buy it and it does not go to waste. (M) A).
