Electric Vehicle Mathematics

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

With rising gas prices and growing environmental concerns, electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrids are gaining popularity in the U.S. In this talk we'll look at some simple mathematics related to operation of electric vehicles. How does the Prius manage multiple motive power sources? What is an "MPG"? How can we assess how much and how efficiently an EV uses energy? We'll try to answer these and other questions, using mathematics ranging from simple ratios to integral calculus.
