Energy : Its Use and the Environment - 4th edition

by Roger A. Hinrichs

Energy : Its Use and the Environment (ISBN10: 0495010855; ISBN13: 9780495010852)
ISBN13: 978-0495010852
ISBN10: 0495010855

Summary: ENERGY: ITS USE AND THE ENVIRONMENT, Fourth Edition is an introductory textbook that emphasizes the physical principles behind energy and its effects on our environment. The text explains the basic physical principles behind the use of energy, including the study of mechanics, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics, and atomic and nuclear physics. It also covers crucial environmental questions that currently are receiving much public attention, such as global warm ...show moreing, radioactive waste, municipal solid waste and nuclear energy production materials.

The new fourth edition continues to emphasize the impact energy issues have on the individual and society. By placing energy issues within the context of everyday examples and asking students to define and support critical arguments, ENERGY utilizes relevant applications to capture student interest. A new ongoing email service provides subscribing instructors the opportunity to seamlessly incorporate current events into their course lectures.

The text can be used in physics, technology, physical science, and environmental science courses for non-science majors. Many of the standard topics found in introductory physics textbooks are included. As a result, this book can be used as the text in a conceptual physics course with energy as the central theme. No math or other science prerequisite is necessary.

New to the Edition

  • "How Would You Choose" emphasizes the impact energy issues have on personal affairs and electoral patterns. Introduced at the start of each chapter and revisited at the chapter's end, this feature asks students to create and support a valid critical argument on a relevant energy issue.
  • Increased relevancy is provided via our "Instructor Lecture Launcher" subscription service. Subscribing instructors will receive monthly updates from the authors via e-mail, offering suggestions on how to seamlessly integrate energy-related current events into the daily course lectures.
  • Fully revised and updated to reflect the most current material, including: the 2005 U.S. energy policy bill, increased ethanol production from corn, the reawakening of nuclear power, new information on fuel cells and hydrogen economy, and an expanded discussion on global warming.
