EAS 1600 - Environmental Physics


(OPHLS-AG, PBS-AS) (CU-SBY)     
Fall, Spring. 3 credits. Fall: student option grading; Spring: letter grades only.

Forbidden Overlap: due to an overlap in content, students will receive credit for only one course in the following group: EAS 1600, PHYS 1101 , PHYS 1112 , PHYS 1116 , PHYS 2207 .
Prerequisite: mathematics through high school trigonometry.

Fall, S. Riha; Spring, M. Wysocki.

Fundamentals of radiation, thermodynamics, and mechanics will be introduced and used to understand energy and mass transfers in natural and built environments. Students will describe, identify and use basic principles of physics to discuss and assess renewable energy systems and solve environmental physics problems, using a physics vocabulary and appropriately quantifying results. The course is offered in the spring semester as a flipped class, meeting twice weekly. The course is offered in the fall semester as a web-based, online course and covers the same material.

Outcome 1: Describe, identify and use the basic principles of physics associated with energy and mass budgets and transfers as applied to the Earth’s natural and built environment.

Outcome 2: Discuss, assess and solve environmental physics problems, using a physics vocabulary and appropriately quantifying results.
