Elements Of Environmental Physics
course in environmental Physics that emphasizes the physical principles
behind the production, transport and conversion of energy. The laws
of thermodynamics and classical mechanics are applied to natural ecosystems and
energy resources such as fossil fuels, nuclear energy, hydropower, wind, solar
power etc. These resources are analyzed in terms of the societal and
environmental impacts of the associated technologies.
EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES
the end of the course, the students should be able to:
Apply scientific principles and methodologies
to analyse environmental problems with intention of evaluating relative risks
which are natural and man made.
Solve a spectrum of real world environmental
associated with energy in relationship to environment.
Minimise serious problems such as urban air
and water pollution by applying principle laws and treaties.
