Engineering- How A Steam Plant Works

After completing my math degree I severed in the US Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer.  In one of my tours I served as an Engineering Power Plant Officer.  The job was very interesting and challenging and gave me an opportunity to use a lot of my analytical skills developed in mathematics.  Many students often say “where would I ever use math in the real world!”.   I think that if we don’t make math interesting to applications in the “real world” we fail many students that could love engineering and the sciences.  After doing a video on celestial navigation and math I was compelled to do a video on steam plants.  The video is more of a science video however I think would be great for those that are studying basic physics or chemistry.
