By the end of this course, students will:
- demonstrate an understanding of forms of energy, energy sources, energy transformations, energy losses, and efficiency, and the operation of common energy-transforming devices;
- construct or investigate devices that involve energy sources, energy transformations, and energy losses, and assess their efficiency;
- analyse and describe the operation of various technologies based on energy transfers and transformations, and evaluate the potential of energy-transformation technologies that use sources of renewable energy.
Energy comes in many forms and must be converted into other forms to be of use to society.
