The Mathematics of Electric Cars.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Since the crushing of the EV1 by General Motors in 2003, much misinformation about electric cars has been propagated over the years. This presentation looks at the math behind EVs. Range, charge time, costs to operate, energy consumption and emissions will be compared. Financial incentives will be discussed. The demands and infrastructure for this form of transportation will be examined. This topic makes a fun and interesting lab activity for math 143.  A link to the presentation is below.

Math is such a cool subject. In itself pure, but applicable everywhere! However, I am also an electric car enthusiast and would love to see our energy dependence shifted to renewables.
