Wed read handouts and RK 11 12 and 15 Today intro to course energy Next US energy consumption orders of magnitude units Welcome syllabus Try to make large class feel small engage Why not take this course Upper division fair amount of work have to attend and collaborate Energy what is it how is it produced and used How does it impact technological society and the environment Quantitative this is a physics course But no prereqs except algebra and logical thinking Many issues we ll cover are complex and can be emotional This is not physics I quotpointlike objects neglecting frictionquot But still it is subject to quantitativelogicalscientific reasoning We will focus on facts and technical aspects here I leave the socialethicaljudgments you draw from these facts and analysis to you Not a policy course Focus on scientificquantitative argumentation Just eg consider all the complex issues surrounding nuclear power Some are physical some social or political We ll try to focus on facts quantitative comparisons the grounds for forming opinions My own opinion about Whether it is quotgoodquot or quotbadquot is totally irrelevant and I ll try to keep it out of the discussion A word like quotenergyquot is well defined and we will try to understand and make sense of it A word like quotpollutionquot carries with it some subjectivity and valuejudgments Nonetheless we can make working definitions and consider how to evaluate the associated data That s the game in this class Phys 3070 2 15 15 Big topics fundamentals of energy basic physics Fossil fuels what we39re doing now Heat engines more physics how we use those fossil fuels Alternative fuels solar wind nuclear where we39re headed Conservationenergy in the home Transportation and pollution as time permits Global effects ozone greenhouse warming We39ll try to look at the issues we face and possible solutions always focusing on what can be measured calculated approached scientifically This won39t be a policy class By the end you should have a good store of quantitative knowledge and understanding an ability to evaluate products decide on storm windows inform your own rational decisions about personal choices and legislation Energy and the environment comes in and out of the public quotviewscreenquot The quotenergy crisisquot of the 397039s introduced most Americans to it Oil prices are now at much lower prices taking inflation into account It loomed larger in the 2000 election and was relegated to much less press time in the 3904 election It will come and go in the public eye but as we39ll see these issues will steadily gain attention and importance They may very well completely dominate global politics very soon a a fossil fuel exploitation Figure 12 in your text 1 is perhaps one of the most sobering and 5000 YEARS PR ESEN 39 YEARS important graphs we will encounter It sets the stage for much of this course For hundreds of millions of years this supply has been steadily building and there will be nearly complete exploitation of it in a time scale of several centuries This course is all about understanding the implications of this graph We live in an extraordinary time I don39t mean this particular year I mean the era of massive The bottom line to take from that curve and others like it this is not just relevant for fossil fuels is that 1 natural resources are finite and 2 environmental effects are not zero As Aubrecht puts it in his nice Energy textbook quotTANSTAAFLquot there ain39t no such thing as a free lunch See Arithmetic Population and Energy Al Bartlett See Vostok ice cores httpwwwexploratoriumeduclimatecryospheredata2html CO2 wwwglobalchangeumicheduglobalchange1currentlabscarboncyclecarboncyclehtml Phys 3070 3 15 15 Some stuff I looked up relating to that curve shown in the text and in the notes above mostly from wwweiadoegov energy information administration Global coal USE is about 100 QBtuyr 5E9 tonyear Global fossil fuel USE is about 400 QBtuyer 2E10 tonyear Global coal reserves are estimated high end estimate at 1E12 tons 2 2E4 QBtu Global oil reserves are estimated high end estimate at 2E12 bbl 2 1E4 QBtu US coal USE is 20 QBtuyr 1E9 tonyear US fossil fuel USE is about 100 QBtu of which 40 is petroleum Some fun estimates Mass of earth is 6E24 kg 3E21 tons A ball of earth size with thickness 1 km like the crust using a density of water 2 coal 2 1kgm3 gives 5E20 kg 2E17 tons So a uniform crust 1 meter thick is 2E14 tons compare that with the 1E12 ton estimate for coal So 12 of the top meter is coal Given that we consume 400 QBtuyr the current global use let s just pretend it s all coal since coal dominates the long term supply story So if the entire planet was coal it d last us 15E11 years If the entire crust was coal it d last us 1E7 years If the top meter was coal it d last 1E4 years Given the EIA estimates it d last us 50 years Note since at the moment coal use is not ALL the energy use but only 14 the current gov t estimate that quotcoal will last us 200 yearsquot is consistent with this As we ll see later if you have growth at some percent P then the amount of time a resource will last is reduced If you call T0 the number of years that you expect a resource to last WITHOUT growh that s what we computed above then the formale with growth is Tendin years 100P ln 1 P100T0 in years So for 2 growth which is what we ve experienced for several decades that 50 years of coal turns into 35 Or the 200 years considering other fuels becomes 80 Even the 10000 years of a fantasy earth with 1 m of coal everywhere using just that coal would last less than 300 years At 3 growth less than 200 Phys 3070 4 15 15 Lecture 2 Wed Jan 12 For next read 13 4 6 and the Feynman introduction to energy handout Last Intro to course Today US Energy use some math powers of 10 estimates Next More US energy use Physics of energypower and units HW CAPA and couple quotlong answerquot See web Problem solving session Tuesday 3305 in back of quothelp roomquot Go over math diagnostic reminders dropping exam Clicker matrix and registration US consumes about 100 QBtu of energyyear We ll talk about units soon This is a big number Q is 1E15 See graph 11 p 3 for the time evolution of these Semi log do we need to discuss We ll talk more about this and Where this goes to next time Key points for us to focus on this semester 1 Fossil fuels are nite If take quotestimated resourcesquot and divide by quotcurrent rate of consumptionquot get several decades for gas and oil few centuries for coal If you factor in increasing rates of consumption these numbers go down 100E6 cumulative years of stored solar energy is being exploited in a few centuries 2 Environmental consequences Atmosphere is finite too CO2 Pollution Chernobyl Oil spills These were considered negligible until quite recently in history Our quotera of fossil fuel exploitationquot is remarkable in this way too we are now approaching natural planetary limits and impacting the global env t 100 QBtu is 14 of planetary use we have 120 the population Why so much 1 We re wealthy High standard of living correlates with energy use See Fig 13 p6 Cars SUV s clothes dryers dishwashers etc Wealth is not the Whole story though 2 We re not very efficient US economy developed in era of cheap energy Later in course we ll focus on this energy conservation Improving but slowly Role of gov t subsidizes roads crops deforestation industry which increases energy use But also mandates energy efficiency standards mileage bans DDT CFC 300 lbs of coal 2 lifetime of manual labor Fossil fuels played a central role in developing technological society End of slavery surely not coincidentally at time of 1st exploitation of fossil fuels Back to that graph 13 showing correlation between wealth and energy use CAUSALITY is NOT the same as CORRELATION Ex of preachers in England is correlated with points of rum consumed in England Preachers don t cause drinking both

Very important in this course in work in life Much of all science begins with and relies on OOM estimates Gives rough but reasonable numbers Let s you decide if people are talking nonsense It s the KEY to decision making sense making policy making It doesn t MATTER if we re off by 10 or even a factor of 2 That s the trick the secret here Don t WORRY about factors of 2 We want it to within a power of 10 If you break up the problem into pieces same story just need rough guesses Most errors will cancel out anyway Phys 3070 6 15 15 Example How much money is spent in the US on gas for cars each year Would be of real importance for policy decisions about gas standards or gas tax etc How could you possibly estimate this Break it into pieces think of reasonable s Do we know the ofpeople in the US a fact that s easy to find 300 million What if we didn t know THAT number Denver metro is a couple of million people Each state has a big city or two many have huge cities some have none So figure 50 states 2 big cities 2 million 2 200 million We re in agreement on the COM Use this to estimate of cars Must be similar Most people have a car So 3E8 cars Of course kids don t have cars but many adults do have more than one Doesn t really matter for our OOM purposes Can you guess how much gas you put in to a car each year Sure think of how many miles you drive and how many milesgallon you get Typical people drive 15000 milesyear and get 20 milesgallon which means 15000 miyear 20 migal 700 galyear What ifI didn t know that people go 15000 miles Well how about this you fill up about once a week at about 15 gallons a shot 15 galweek 50 weeksyear 750 galyear Same result So we re estimating 3E8 cars 750 galyear per car 2 2E11 galyear You now how much money you spend per gallon roughly 2 gal nowadays ouch So we have 2gal 2E11 galyear 4E11 or 400 billionyear That s a lot A 040 gal tax 10 of the cost would raise about 40 billion in revenuesyear But is it right It could easily off by 2 or 3 But I just can t see how it could be off by 10 or 100 If you read an article that says quotAmericans spend 200 millionyear on gasquot you know the reporter has paid no attention to numbers they re spouting nonsense If it s a politician and they stick with it maybe you should reconsider voting for them By the way many times you can use such a technique to estimate something you could never figure out any other way But nowadays lots of obscure facts get compiled on the web A search took me to the National Transportation Safety Board which estimates Americans use 200 billion gallonsyear 2E11 galyear We re bang on Of course it wouldn t surprise me if THEY did an estimatejust like we did You have to be REALLY wary of getting stats off the web Unless you have strong reason to trust the site there s so much nonsense there this kind of OOM estimation at least lets you decide if they re crazy or not H1y53070 715 15 mu mm mm mumnon a Egan u Various fem Dung Whmw me 13m

caveats It s quantitative How much energy you have tells you amount of work you can do in principle So What s work It s NOT just a force push or pull Work W Force distance This is a de nition which turns out fantastically useful If you hold a weight gt no distance zero work Same if you push the wall Counterintuitive it s not quotEnglish language usagequot But it s well defined and useful Phys

quotspring constantquot X is the stretch 4 Electric energy U 2 charge voltage 5 Electromagnetic radiation never mind the formula 6 Mass energy Einstein s relativity theory E mc 2 c 3E8 ms Huge This is often associated with nuclear energy although it s really present everywhere 7 Chemical potential energy never mind the formula chemists usually tell us what it is for specific reactions Eg C 02 gt C02 95 kcalmole of carbon 8 Thermal energy We ll mostly use mCChange in temperature where m is the mass of stuff C is a number called quotheat capacityquot It takes energy to heat something and when something cools it releases energy Energy can take different forms and convert from one to the other But not all energy is equally easy to USE practically or to convert to other forms E g Thermal energy can be hard to use get at or convert into other forms Ditto for mass energy in many circumstances Eg my body gt 50 kg using Emc2 I get 50 kg 3E8 ms2 5E18 Joules Recall the US uses 100 QBtu each year at 1055 JBtu which means 1E20 Jyear So my body mass represents 5 of the entire annual national energy usage Phys 3070 1315 Units Can be a pain but oh so important Work or energy have same units force distance Energy in metric quotSIquot 1 Joule 1 J 1 Newton 1 meter 2 1 Nm 2 1 kg m 2sec2 The quotNewtonquot measures force it has units of massacceleration 2 kg msecA2 In the British system which America alone still uses 1 ft lb 2 1 pound 1 foot Conversion 1 ft lb 2 136 J There are other units alas I Calorie 1 Cal 2 1000 cal 1 kcal 4184 J a lot 1 Btu 1 British thermal unit 1055 J 252 Cal 2 776 ft lb a lot Note 1 cal heats one gram of water by 1 degree Celsius Not much 1 gram is small 1 Btu heats one pound of water by 1 degree Fahrenheit a lot of energy to do that quotA pint s a pound the world aroundquot Example 1 bike up Flagstaff How much work is done in various units 120 lbs 1000 ft12E5 ft lbs Multiplying by 252 Cal776 ft lb gives 39 Cal A small candy bar Multiplying instead by 136 Jft lb gives 2 MJ Mega Joules or 155 Btu Of course I need to eat MORE than 39 Cal due to heat friction wasted energy Power is the rate of doing work It s the energy transferred per unit time Power Energy time It s a rate It s not the same as energy though it s related Think of an analogy You get paid at a rate some number of dollars per hour CU staff won t say quotmy day job pays 10quot they say it pays quot10hourquot We usually average you might work for 40 hours in a week before you get your 400 If it takes the boss 1 minute to fork over the 400 you don t say you get 400minute sweet though that would be you average it over the hours worked to get to 10hr Knowing you earn 10hour does not tell me how much money you got I need to know how many hours you work in a week Rate is NOT the same as the quotthingquot When 1 bike up Flagstaff it takes 2 MJ no matter ifI go fast or slow But going fast short time means more POWER 1 expend the same amount of energy faster ie the RATE is higher Here my power 2 2 MJ30 minutes60 secmin 1 hp746 Js 1 hp I m a tenth of a horse when I m on my bike 1 Watt 1 W 1 Js A 100W light bulb consumes 100 Joules of energy every second 1 hp 2 550 ft lbsec 2550 Btuhr 746 W one horse could light 7 100 W bulbs continuously assuming perfect efficiency Not unreasonable Phys 3070 1415 Since power 2 energytime then energy 2 power time That s like saying salary hour so earned salarytime The quotpower companyquot Excel in Colorado charges for ENERGY 2 work done My bill comes and charges me for how many quotkWhrquot I used Note that kW hour 2 powertime is indeed an energy So they don t actually charge for power You can use 1000 W for 1 hour or 100 W for 10 hours the bill is the same 1 kW hr in either case do you see why Note 1 kW hr 1000 Js1 hr 60 minhr60 secmin 36 M Mega Joules That costs about 010 if you pay for Windsource My last bill says I used 350 kWhr 35 last month Is that reasonable Let s check Think about usingjust 5 bulbs ALL the time That s 500 Watts of power Since energy is powertime in a month that would consume 500 Watts1 month30 daysmo24 hrsday 360000 W hrs 2 360 kWhrs That s my bill So on average my home has the equivalent of 5 bright bulbs going Although I don t always have 5 bulbs on I do use electric appliances eg the oven which consume much MORE than 100W An oven might be 1000 W I might have more than 5 bulbs on for a few hours in the evening It s winter now so I use more electricity than in the summer So it s not a crazy number at all The average American home twice this about 1 kW It s impressive how much energy we Americans consume as we ll see shortly I ve seen newspaper articles talking about kWhour That s nonsense they re confused It would be like talking about your salary DIVIDED by hours worked Why would you do that it wouldn t tell you anything The average American doesn t consume 1kWhour or 1kWday or 1kWyear or 1kWanything It s an average RATE 1 kW Example You fall asleep and leave a 100 W reading light on You wake up 8 hours later time for class How much money did youjust waste Ans We pay for energy not power Energy powertime 100W 8 hrs 2 800 Whr 08 kWhr Since you pay about 010 for each kWhr that s about 8 cents No big deal Energy is cheap If you had to produce this much energy by running on a treadmill it s another story Above we said I can produce maybe 01 hp which is 75 W So I d have to run all night constantly to keep that bulb burning Imagine if they only paid you 8 cents for doing that That was the effective state of affairs before abundant fossil fuels Phys 3070 1515

over all history It s cumulative It doesn t change with time it s how much was underground long ago that is ultimately going to be used We d like to know this number How to estimate it Fig 23 Look at discoveries of wells Because production always follows Takes about a decade for a new discovery to quotcome onlinequot See also 23 25 and 26 of older RampK available on reserve at Phys library Discovery rate is not constant Rises steeply at first in a given region then steadily declines 11E9 bbl discovered in US in 03 50 less than previous year quotDiscoveryquot can also include revisions of predictions from wells due to improved technology MKing Hubbert tried a different approach Plotted total production to a smooth bell shaped curve Argued that many small wells which grow produce and run dry must ultimately yield such a curve PREDICTED in 1956 Qinfinity USA 2 2E11 bbl timemax prod 1970 He didn t consider Alaska Textbook 1996 QinfinityUSA 28E11 bbl time max prod 1970 USGS estimate in 2000 still about the same No amount of effort or technology there s been LOTS has changed these numbers for 50 yrs Why He built in the assumption that there would be new discoveries that s what the Bell shaped curve comes from Look at Fig 22 of our text USGS 2000 update the new rectangle has 97E9 bbl in it but it starts 7 years later See also Table 21 We ve consumed 190E9 bbl sofar As prices go up can afford to get more out Ex 30 recovery rate from a field might improve perhaps to 50 This should be in the curve which is not a geology model Hubbert s estimate was off not by much The farther we get the better the estimate is We consumed 7E9 Bbl in 03 Rising gt2year If we got it all without importing our total Qinfinity supply would give us another 100E9 bbl7E9 bblyr 14 years Imagine being o by a factor of 2 so add 100E9 bbl more for a magic technology yielding total 100 recovery from all wells past present and futurequot That would add another 14 years at present rates Less if demand

oil companies like to quote R Reserves either proven or estimated quotrecoverablequot Production Rate Naively if P stays constant then RP total amount per year of years So RP gives you a simple idea of quothow many years do we have leftquot But that would only be true if production stayed constant and we consumed up to the last drop and then it stopped Usually looks nice and long when presented this way RP change They are not independent RP went up for a long time That means we were finding more at a rapid rate more rapidly than we producedconsumed it In US RP has been quite level for 30 years It can t stay level forever if demand gt P goes up then you must keep finding new reserves at an ever increasing rate New US discoveries 11139 bbl in 03 Production in US 19139 bbl in 03 So RP is now going down Prices Gasoline has dropped for last 20 years Even recently with rise from 150 200 still not near peak in 80 s If US oil supply is steeply decreasing and global supply is starting to approach its peak why isn39t price climbing Oil production is primary income for many countries gt good supply US gas tax is 5 10 times less than rest of world Issues Pollution road rage congestion resource depletion trade imbalance wars Lobbies oil industry car inducstry motelrestaurant industry highway construction land developers What are the costs to increasing taxes What will happen when the world does reach the peak of its Hubbert curve Phys 3 070 6 8 There are other fuels Nature gas methane CH4 bit of ethane See Fig 26 of text Fast growing Less pollution less 802 less particulates

vehicles trucks buses What happens if they all drive cars at the same level per person as we do That would increase the 5E6 number by a factor of 100 Their goal is to produce or import l 2E6 each year a 20 40 increase annually SUMMARY End of era of fossil fuels is visible Resources are finite We will experience the quotstartquot of this end in our lifetime The human race has used almost half of ALL the oil that will ever be found already Similar for nat gas although there is somewhat more Ditto for coal there is still more of this Table 29 in text Unprecedented period of time historically Rather than talking about quottime to run outquot nonsensicall better to discuss time to reach quotpeak of Hubbert curvequot where resources is half gone and future production is always LESS each year than the year before After the peak for any given resource others must take over or else radical change in economics and lifestyle must occur decade for oil decade or two for nat gas Century for coal Shale oil and tar sand expensive destructive Do you think they ll be used Coal huge environmental impacts Still hard to fully evaluate will discuss more Can we switch to it when reach Hubbert Peak for oil and gas Should we Costs certain to rise sharply when reach peak of curve Short term fluctuationspolitical influence might make it hard to discern or accelerate it Hubbert peak doesn t have to be Bell
