Insertion, Updation and Deletion Anamolies are very frequent if database is not normalized. To understand these anomalies let us take an example of a Student . 12 Jun Database Normalization: Explain 1NF, 2NF, 3NF, BCNF With Examples + PDF: The purpose of normalization is to make the life of users easier. Here you will learn about normalization in dbms with examples. To go to BCNF first we have to check whether the table is in 1NF, 2NF, 3NF and then BCNF.

We need not worry about this, 22nf while converting ER model diagram to relational model tablewe follow rules that they guarantees all attributes free from multi-valued and composite.

This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. A transitive functional dependency is ecample changing a non-key column, might cause any of the other non-key columns to change Consider the table 1.

Hi there, I have read whole article of Normalization and I must say, it a best explanation with examples.

What is Normalization? 1NF, 2NF, 3NF & BCNF with Examples

Consider a table containing the details of a company. Column A is said to be functionally dependent on column B if changing the value of A may require a change in the value of B. Here, when we changed the name of the professor, we also had to change the department column. We will see the problems ecample we face when a table is not normalized. The second one and the last one have 2 columns.


To make it into BCNF. Learn how your comment data is processed.

At the end of this article, you will be given a free pdf copy of all these Normalization forms. That’s all to Normalization!!!

DBMS Normalization: 1NF, 2NF, 3NF and BCNF with Examples

However, the tuple student name, course code is unique since a student cannot enrol in the same course more than once. So, Normalization means split the tables into small tables which will contain less number of attributes in such a way that table design must not contain any problem of inserting, deleting, updating anomalies and guarantees no redundancy.

To overcome these anomalies we need to normalize the data. No partial keys are allowed. It is also unique across various rows. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy. For instance, suppose, if Prof. There are no transitive functional dependencies, and hence our table is in 3NF In Table 3 Salutation ID is primary key, and in Table 1 Salutation ID is foreign to primary key in Table 3 Now our little example is at a level that cannot further be decomposed to attain higher forms of normalization.


The various forms of normalization are described below: Therefore AB is a key there is no problem. Here is the Third Normal Form tutorial. And also arises other anomalies.

Normalization in DBMS – 1NF, 2NF, 3NF and BCNF

What are transitive functional dependencies? A better method would be to store the courses separately.

In first table they are dependent, that is the violation of the 3NF. This may lead to an inconsistent database. Let us take another example of storing student exsmple in various courses. We have stored it at just 1 place. Database normalization is a technique of organizing the data in the database.

Normalization in DBMS: 1NF, 2NF, 3NF and BCNF in Database

So one and only prime attribute is StuID only. The database is maintained to keep a record of all the books that are available 2nff will be available in the bookstore. So there is no problem this is in 3NF. SQL is the standard language to query a database.

In the above table we have two rows for employee Rick as he belongs to two departments of the company.
