2) what are the advantages/disadvantages of these alternative metals?
3) how are the materials in wire/electronics obtained and processed? ( include redox equations in mining/refining steps)
4)how long are wire/electronics expected to last? generally
5)what will happen to wires/electronics when no longer being used for current purpose? example: recycled? thrown away?
6)how might the impact of the environment be addressed at each stage of wire/electronics life cycle?
This question was asked yesterday. We shall be happy to critique your thoughts.
