The world faces serious difficulties in obtaining the energy that will be needed in coming decades for a growing population, especially given the problem of climate change caused by fossil fuel use. This book presents a view of nuclear energy as an important carbon-free energy option. It discusses the nuclear fuel cycle, the types of reactors used today and proposed for the future, nuclear waste disposal, reactor accidents and reactor safety, nuclear weapon proliferation, and the cost of electric power.

Spontaneous processes, entropy and the second law of thermodynamics, the molecular interpretation of entropy, gibbs free energy, free energy and the equilibrium constant,... is the main content of the lecture "Chapter 19: Chemical Thermodynamics". Invite you to consult the detailed content lectures to capture details.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Chemistry a molecular approach" has contents: Chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, aqueous ionic equilibrium, free energy and thermodynamics, free energy and thermodynamics, organic chemistry, radioactivity and nuclear chemistry, chemistry of the nonmetals,...and other contents.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Chemistry" has contents: Chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium; acids and bases; applications of aqueous equilibria; spontaneity, entropy, and free energy; electrochemistry; the nucleus - a chemist’s view; the representative elements: groups 1a through 4a; organic and biological molecules,...and other contents.
In this Chapter, we quickly review some basic definitions and concepts from thermodynamics. We
then provide a brief description of the first and second laws of thermodynamics. Next, we discuss the
mathematical consequences of these laws and cover some relevant theorems in multivariate calculus.
Finally, free energies and their importance are introduced.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Aguidebook to mechanism in organic chemistry" has contents: Nucleophilic addition to C=O; elimination reactions; carbanions and their reactions; radicals and their reactions; symmetry controlled reactions; linear free energy relationships.
As populations increase and countries industrialize, the world’s
demand for energy increases. Our supply of petroleum and gas is limited,
but the photovoltaic cell offers a solution to the problem of a future energy
shortage. This cell is already an important source of energy. In fact, it seems
almost like magic. The photovoltaic cell changes sunlight directly into
energy. Solar energy – energy from the sun – is clean, easily available,
inexhaustible, and free, if the equipment is available....
In this chapter, the analytical embedded atom method and calculating Gibbs free energy
method are introduced briefly. Combining these methods with molecular dynamic and
Monte Carlo techniques, thermodynamics of nano-silver and alloy particles have been
The National Research Council was asked by the U.S. Navy’s Office of Naval Research (ONR) to assess
the current capabilities of free-electron lasers (FELs) to deliver large amounts of energy; assess the prospects for
developing such devices with megawatt average power capabilities; identify the key technical problems that must
be solved to achieve such performance; and evaluate the feasibility of achieving power, energy, and other technical
parameters specified by the Office of Naval Research.
Chapter 2 - Alkanes, thermodynamics, and kinetics. In this chapter, students will be able to understand: All reactions are equilibria, chemical thermodynamics and kinetics, equilibria, equilibria and free energy, potential energy diagrams, rate determining transition state,...and other contents.
This book is concerned with the subject of Wind Energy, as a source of clean and renewable and free for
all. The need for this type of book is very well documented, the current consumption of energy is
unsustainable and humans have to change their habits and or utilise this source, but there is so much work
before we can rely completely on renewable energy. This book aims to describe the fundamentals of wind
energy and the pertinent parameters that control the amount of energy available from a given wind turbine.
Coal fuelled the industrial revolution in the 18th and 19th century.
Nuclear power approximately supplies a sixth of the world's electricity and considers
as the major source of "carbon-free" energy today. With growing concerns aboutglobal
warming, it is not surprising that governments and power providers around the world
are considering building a substantial number of additional nuclear power plants.
These plants have demonstrated remarkable reliability and efficiency with the help of
extensive research work and sharing operational practical experience.

Fatty acids are an important energy source, for they yield over twice as much energy as an equal mass of carbohydrate or protein. In humans, the primary dietary source of fatty acids is triacylglycerols. This lecture will describe the metabolism of fatty acids. The two main components of fatty acid metabolism are β oxidation and fatty acid synthesis. Upon completion of this lecture, you will understand that the fatty-acid breakdown reactions of β oxidation result in the formation of reduced cofactors and acetyl-CoA molecules, which can be further catabolized to release free energy.
Human activities are affecting the global environment in myriad
ways, with numerous direct and indirect effects on ecosystems.
The climate and atmospheric composition of Earth are changing
rapidly. Humans have directly modified half of the ice-free terrestrial
surface and use 40% of terrestrial production. Our actions are
causing the sixth major extinction event in the history of life on
Earth and are radically modifying the interactions among forests,
fields, streams, and oceans.
