Part 1 Included and excluded by the boundaries : - Disposable cups may be convenient in terms of single use. Also, its production may seem less costly than regular mugs in the short term. In the long run, however, disposable cups may generate more cost because they are only good for one-time use. - If the boundary is restricted to individual homes, then, the energy will be used fairly efficiently. However, if the boundary extends beyond individual homes, then the energy will be used less efficiently. 1. Do you think the boundaries were appropriate? Too wide? Too narrow? Why? I think the boundaries were fairly appropriate because they take into account most properties of energy used for the production of a disposable cup. 2.

Unformatted text preview: I believe that Hocking’s decision to discount the cost of the dishwasher is not very reasonable because even though it is a small amount of money – if the number of times the dishwasher is used is counted – the cost of the dishwasher still adds a cost to the a cup being washed. In addition to this, Hocking might also want to consider the cost of electricity and soap that was being used to clean each cup. 3. Do you think Hocking's conclusions are valid? Give reasons for your answer. Yes, I think Hocking’s conclusions are valid because he takes account many different circumstances people can be placed in and the type of cup – either disposable or non-disposable – that are likely to be used in each situation.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
