Full Form of POP:
Post Office Protocol
POP Full Form is Post Office Protocol. POP is a standard internet protocol. It is client or server protocol that is used for receiving e-mail messages from the e-mail server. It basically helps and allows the e-mail clients used by the users to retrieve e-mail messages from a remote mail server over the network that uses TCP/IP connection.
The earlier version of POP is called POP2 and it became immensely popular during the 1980s. In order to receive messages, POP2 needs SMTP ( Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). The newer version is called POP3. This version can work on both conditions — with or without SMTP. POP3 is efficiently built into numerous popular e-mail clients like Outlook Express and Eudora.
By the help of POP, an user can read his e-mail messages from one particular device. POP allows the client to download the e-mail from the server and thereafter it usually deletes or eliminates the message. It is simply a store and forward service. Because of such limitations, users can not read or gain access to their e-mails from various different devices. This is the reason why most of the e-mail clients and users prefer to use IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) over the functionally limited POP.
POP Full Form: Plaster Of Paris
Full Form of POP stands for Plaster Of Paris. POP is a heavy, white plaster powder. If water is added to it, POP thickens and then hardens. As it sets quickly, POP is mainly used in casting, molding, and statuary creation. In ancient times POP was used in order to create the ground for tempera painting as well as oil painting too.
POP is also known as gypsum plaster. Plaster of Paris derived such a name because it is prepared from gypsum powder which is mainly found around Montmartre that is situated near Paris. Plaster of Paris (CaSO4·0.5H2O) is prepared after heating the gypsum powder (CaSO4·2H2O). During this chemical reaction 1.5H2O is released as steam.
The heating is usually done above 266 °F (130 °C) up to about 300 °F (150 °C). It is used extensively during the interior decoration of a house, where parts of ornamental plasterwork are to be placed on ceilings and also cornices. It is also used in medical treatment because of its ability to get set and hardened quickly.
It is commonly used in cases of broken bones. Plaster of Paris immobilizes the broken bones during the healing process. Creators and manufacturers of sculptures use Plaster of Paris as it saves time regarding hardening. Thus, it helps them to plan and perform their work in quick time.
