Unit 3 worksheet 5 is the fifth workbook I’ve written on quantitative energy problems. The fifth worksheet, more than most, actually answers a lot of the questions I get from clients and critics alike. It’s probably one of the best worksheets I’ve ever written. What does it contain?
First of all, the workbook is about twenty pages long. Unlike most other workbooks, this one doesn’t assume you’re a graduate in physics or math. It doesn’t assume that you’re familiar with first-year calculus, either. You don’t even need to be a good student or math whiz, though it would help if you were.
What I really want to do is explain a few of the key things in this worksheet. There are four categories of problems here. The first category is about the theories of thermodynamics. The second category is about the theories of thermodynamics limits. The third category is about the applications of thermodynamics.
The fourth category is about the reactions of various materials, and how they relate to us and to other materials. The fifth category is about how we measure energy. In this section, I usually lay out a model that tells us what kind of energy we are dealing with and then I give examples of measurement procedures that are commonly used in scientific laboratories.
A lot of the solutions in this section are very easy. In fact, some of them look so simple that you might think they’re not real solutions at all. But these solutions are exactly that. They are real solutions that use real measurements.
When it comes to measuring the quantities in the “quantitative energy problems” section of this workbook, I find it extremely important that you understand that the system you’re measuring must be mechanically working correctly, without the need for any electricity or magnetism. Otherwise, the work you’re doing can’t be done correctly.
And, as it turns out, that’s what a lot of people in the scientific community do. It’s been my experience that these people are not always very bright, and they have to continually be looking at their electronic boards in order to make sure that their systems are working properly. Of course, they are using units and formulas and equations and all kinds of other stuff that I don’t cover in this section of the book.
This isn’t to say that there aren’t some very nice and interesting sections in this workbook. I do find it fascinating that even though we all know what an electron is, we still don’t understand it well enough to experiment with the measurement methods we use to measure it. For example, the electron is well understood, but we still have to measure it by hand. That’s what makes the worksheet I’ve written so fascinating.
