What are the differences among valuation, depreciation, amortization, and depletion? Is it appropriate to calculate depreciation using two different methods? Why?

Depreciation: The term depreciation is used with reference to tangible fixed assets because the permanent continuing and gradual fall in book value is possible only in the case of fixed asset. Depletion: The term depletion is used for the depreciation of
wasting assets such as mines, oil wells, timber trees etc. Amortization The term amortization is used in respect of intangible assets like patents, copyrights, leasehold and goodwill which are recorded at cost. Some intangible assets have limited useful life and are, therefore, written off. The process of their writing off is called amortization. ]
