Is embodied carbon of construction materials covered in this exam?
I came across it in a Black Spectacles Practice Exam question which stated that Concrete Masonry Units had a lower embodied carbon than Brick Masonry in Arizona. I do not know the context very well, but I guess it does seem CMU may be more prevalent in this area, though hard to know... still intuitively materials to form brick feel like more naturally occurring substances than concrete.
I am a bit confused by this question.
Is it true CMU has lower embodied carbon than brick?
Would this be covered on the PA exam?
