Environmental impact?

Postby Nicole Jacobs 1C » Tue Feb 06, 2018 11:25 pm

On Outline 1 on Lavelle's website, it states this as the last learning goal bullet: "Understand the environmental impact of burning fossil fuels, and the use of alternative
fuels". Will we have to know this even though Lavelle did not cover this in lecture?

Since he has not covered it in lecture, I would be very surprised if this was tested on the midterm. The only way I could see it being tested is perhaps in the background in a conceptual question.

I would assume that the question he would ask would have to do with a temperature raise in the atmosphere (like how we use q=-q) but I doubt it will be covered on the exam.

Agreed with the others but probably just the heat change from surroundings and system and such.

It would probably just include the environmental impact (surroundings and such) as context for a problem, but I doubt we would need to memorize how to deal with a complex problem dealing specifically in it.

I don't think so, I think there were only be system/surroundings stuff that relate to the environment.

I do not think you will be required to know the environmental impact of burning fossil fuels for the final since Lavelle hasn't covered it. I think that he included it because it's an important and relevant concept to understand especially in today's society, but we will not be tested on it.
