- Quantify the driving guidance to look ahead and take your foot
off the accelerator when approaching a yellow or red light by
answering the following:
- How much exergy is not destroyed for a 1000 kg vehicle going 56 km/h that coasts to a stop in 200 m vs. a vehicle that maintains its speed until braking beginning 30 meters from the traffic signal? Assume friction forces are unaffected by velocity.
- How does an electric vehicle reduce exergy destruction?
- What is the maximum exergy that might not be destroyed by an electric vehicle during deceleration to a stop, compared with a gasoline vehicle? Assume in both cases a vehicle 1000 kg mass traveling 56 km/h.
