Energy and the Earth’s Environment covers a wide range of energy issues ¬– from energy production to the physics of energy's effect on the environment. The unit is suitable for anyone who wants to gain an understanding of energy production and the demands it puts on the Earth, and look towards possible solutions for these problems. This online unit is especially relevant in this society, as it becoming more and more obvious that our energy consumption is unsustainable.
On finishing this unit, you will gain a thorough understanding of basic physics, including the relationships between physical quantities and the physical properties that govern energy production. You will develop knowledge of where and how energy is currently used, and whether this usage is efficient or not. You will also be taught mathematical methods that allow you to calculate and compare the efficiency of different types of energy production. This unit will also discuss the use of different models that demonstrate the greenhouse effect.
