timo Posted April 30, 2006 Share Posted April 30, 2006 @Atheist: Like the questions' date=' common sence yet scentific. Would they need to know the reasoning behind them for the answers though do you think?[/quote'] Yes, people should know the reason behind it. But as a matter of fact, the first two questions are explicitely chosen such that the actual physics knowledge is absolutely minimal. E.g. knowing that running a fridge consumes energy, that the energy has to go somewhere and that it will do so as heat is sufficient for question 1. No need to know more thermodynamics other than that heat is a form of energy. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
