PHYS 2350 - Energy Sources
(3 Credits)

A detailed investigation of the physical aspects of energy production and utilization. Critical comparison of the various energy sources including solar, nuclear, fossil, and wind will be emphasized. The physics of energy collection, production, storage, and distribution will be discussed in the context of thermodynamics, radiation, solid state and nuclear physics. Prerequisite: a grade of "C" or better in one of PHYS 1070, PHYS 1071, or PHYS 2152, or a "C+" or better in PHYS 1030 or PHYS 1031; or permission of the department.
