INST 2405 - Fearless Investigators: How to Ask Questions About Energy

Hours: 4
This course is a study of energy, the underlying unifying concept for the natural sciences (chemistry, physics, life sciences, geology, meteorology, etc.). Students learn primarily through investigations–that is, students will design experiments and other investigations to develop and deepen understanding of energy-related concepts. Study centers on the first and second laws of thermodynamics, including: conservation of energy, transformation of energy from one form to another within a system, transfer of energy from system to system, and the concept of entropy. These concepts are recruited in the analysis of complex problems such as sustainable energy sourcing and global climate change.
