Energy production

This topic is quite unusual. Rather than having lots of abstract concepts (like force or potential difference), the physics you have studied so far will help you to understand some big real-world issues:

  • Energy production and consumption (usually electricity)
  • Renewable and non-renewable sources
  • Nuclear power
  • The greenhouse effect

It's all about flow!



  • Energy sources

    It may not seem like it at first but almost all our sources of energy originate from the Sun.

  • Global thermal energy transfer

    This is a bit of everything, conservation of energy, waves, electromagnetism, fusion and electron energy levels plus some new concepts black body radiation, Stefan´s law and Wein´s law.
