Physics of Energy

Description: Lecture, three hours; discussion, one hour. Requisites: courses 1A, 1B, 1C, 17, Mathematics 31A, 31B, 32A, 32B, 33A. Description of underlying physics of energy. Energy systems are based on well-known undergraduate-level physics principles such as mechanics, electromagnetism, and thermodynamics. Some understanding of fluid mechanics, quantum physics, statistical mechanics, nuclear physics also helpful, but those concepts introduced as needed. Understanding energy is of primary importance to our world today, as we face serious challenges to finding adequate energy sources to meet world demand, and as energy production is often accompanied by undesirable environmental and social side-effects.
