Laboratory Experiments in Environmental Physicsby Dr. Daniel Short
Environmental Physics provides an introduction to the physical principles that underlie environmental issues and shows how they contribute to the interdisciplinary field of environmental science. The study of environmental physics includes such topics as heat transfer, electricity, pollution, climate change, renewable energy, the production of nuclear energy and radioactive waste.
This book contains 5 topic areas: Forces, heat and Radiation, Nonrenewable Energy, Renewable Energy, and Radioactivity. A total of 22 different laboratory experiments explore concepts such as Newton's laws of motion, heat transfer, radiation laws, air pollution, electrical energy production and use, radioactivity, and radiation exposure.
