9780071794336: Alternative Energy DeMYSTiFieD, 2nd Edition

DeMYSTiFieD fuels your knowledge of tricky subjects like alternative energy

If you think a Maglev train is a child's toy, or learning about fusion makes your brain reach critical mass, Alternative Energy DeMYSTiFieD, Second Edition will power up your knowledge of this topic's fundamental concepts and theories at your own pace.

This practical guide eases you into this field of science, starting at primitive heating sources such as coal and wood. As you progress, you will master the science behind alternative energies such as evaporative cooling, fuel-cell vehicles, aeroelectric power, and more. You will understand the difference between conventional fluorescent and compact fluorescent lamps as well as the benefits of large-scale wind power. Detailed examples make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key ideas.

It's a no-brainer! You'll learn about:

  • Passive solar heating
  • Thermal-mass cooling
  • Propulsion with biofuels
  • Electric vehicles
  • Large-scale hydropower
  • Semiconductor lamps
  • Geothermal power

Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Alternative Energy DeMYSTiFieD, Second Edition is your shortcut to a working knowledge of this timely topic.
