Question details
  1. 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:
    1. 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.
    2. How does an electric vehicle reduce exergy destruction?
    3. 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.
