EV212 - Energy: Environmental Thermodynamics and Energetics

Environmental Thermodynamics and Energetics. Study of the generation and use of energy in an industrial society, environmental problems created by our energy use, and the physical and chemical principles underlying these issues. Scientific principles include: energy and the laws of thermodynamics, and the chemical equilibrium and kinetics needed to understand chemical systems as a means of energy storage. Meets the Critical Perspectives: Scientific Investigation of the Natural World requirement.

Prerequisite: Environmental Program 128 and one of Environmental Program 110, Chemistry & Biochemistry 107 or Chemistry & Biochemistry 117; and either Mathematics 126 or MA125..

Degree requirement — Critical Perspectives: I
