## Why is this table not in 2NF?

Second Normal Form (2NF): A relation that is not in 2NF may suffer from the update anomalies. A relation is in 2NF if it has No Partial Dependency, i.e., no non-prime attribute (attributes which are not part of any candidate key) is dependent on any proper subset of any candidate key of the table.

## Which relation is not in 2NF?

The following relation does not satisfy 2NF because: {Manufacturer country} is functionally dependent on {Manufacturer}. {Manufacturer country} is not part of a candidate key, so it is a non-prime attribute….2NF and candidate keys.

Manufacturer | Model | Manufacturer country |
---|---|---|

Hoch | X-Prime | Germany |

**What is 2NF explain with example?**

What is 2NF? The second step in Normalization is 2NF. A table is in 2NF, only if a relation is in 1NF and meet all the rules, and every non-key attribute is fully dependent on primary key. The Second Normal Form eliminates partial dependencies on primary keys. Let us see an example −

**What’s the difference between 2NF and 3NF?**

The relation R is in 2NF as no prime attribute is deriving non prime attribute that is there is no partial functional dependency….Difference between 2NF and 3NF :

S.NO. | 2NF(Second Normal Form) | 3NF(Third Normal Form) |
---|---|---|

1. | It is already in 1NF. | It is already in 1NF as well as in 2NF also. |

### When is a table in 2NF in 1NF?

A table is in 2NF, only if a relation is in 1NF and meet all the rules, and every non-key attribute is fully dependent on primary key. The Second Normal Form eliminates partial dependencies on primary keys. The prime key attributes are StudentID and ProjectID.

### How are non-key attributes defined in a 2NF table?

All non-key attributes are fully functional dependent on the primary key; In a table, if attribute B is functionally dependent on A, but is not functionally dependent on a proper subset of A, then B is considered fully functional dependent on A. Hence, in a 2NF table, all non-key attributes cannot be dependent on a subset of the primary key.

**When is a relation in a 2NF form?**

A relation is in 2NF if it has No Partial Dependency, i.e., no non-prime attribute (attributes which are not part of any candidate key) is dependent on any proper subset of any candidate key of the table.

**How to decompose a relation to a 2NF table?**

/ Decomposing a relation that consists partial functional dependencies / Steps in decomposing a table into a 2nf table -Relation should be in 1NF. -No partial functional dependency must present. (All the non-key attributes must depend on the whole key / key attribute)
