Science: The Second Law of Thermodynamics

15 January, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

2014-15 WMC Science Lectures for Non Scientists in collaboration with The Crick Institute Amaze yourself at how much science you can understand from these scientists who are great communicators. The Second Law of Thermodynamics by Professor Joseph Schwartz physicist, science journalist and broadcaster, who says: “Learn why the air in the room doesn’t all of a sudden rush into one corner leaving us to suffocate. Learn why the maximum efficiency of a heat engine is only about 30% so that our cars send out at least 70% of their fuel energy as waste heat. Learn why electric cookers are a bad idea. Think with me about global warming and the commercial forces that prevent more efficient energy use.”
