Course Material for ENERGY: This course will address the concepts behind energy and its effects on our environment. We will study the basic physical principles behind the use of energy, including the study of mechanics, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics, and nuclear physics. We will discuss non-renewable sources such as coal, oil, fuel and nuclear energy, as well as renewable sources such as solar power and wind. By placing energy issues within the context of everyday examples this course will offer a provocative approach to the crucial topic.
