pressure, ubar. If a bulldozer emits a sound level of 90 dBA, the sound level (dBA) of two bulldozers next to each other is 93.Trying to decide what my favorite part of the course was is a difficult choice. Overall, I learned a great deal in this course but the two sections that made me think the most about what I do at work and home were Unit II on water pollution and drinking water purification and Unit IVon municipal solid waste. Both of these units touched on subjects that affect my life but until I took this course, I did not realize how important these subjects were. Mostly I think we take for granted where our trash goes or how the water ends up in our faucet and what was shocking to me is how much water we use and how much trash we produce. This course really opened my eyes to the fact that water should not be taken for granted and our sources of it are dwindling while the demand is rising. Also, we need to be mindful about what goes to the landfill, space forlandfills is not infinite and like water as our population grows so does our trash output and it all needs to go somewhere.
