Dear kumar.ashlesha@gmail.com

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.

In case of multiple questions within a query, please post each question individually and let us know where you are getting stuck so that we would be able to explain things better.

Solution of your first query,

The composition of wood is not uniform throughout as it contains knots, tree rings, and individual pieces of bark. It is heterogeneous, cellular and anisotropic. Hence, wood is considered as mixture.
