spark required Higher compression for a diesel implies higher ef ciency typical efficiency 30 Fuel injection makes engine less sensitive to fuel characteristicscan run on cheaper fuel Higher combustion temperature makes NOX worse but much lower CO output Fuel smells more noise heavier weight harder to start in cold weather and slower response The fuel economy of hybrid transit buses is all over the map but all are improvements over tec nology There are reports 39om transit agencies of fuel economy improvements of 1 0 percent all the way up to 50 percent depending on variables such as series or parallel hybrid design system optimizations and the type of bus route eroa tests are being carried out by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory NREL but nal results have not yet been released However preliminary results are promising with fuel economy tests showing a 25 percent to 50 percent increase for the hybrid buses being evaluated depending in part on the conventional diesel used in the comparison H r 3 Y Y a signi cant increase over a standard diesel transit bus the cost of which is closer to 300000 Natural gas buses a loweremission alternative to conventional diesel transit buses are generally 20000 to 50000 more than a diesel bus Natural gas buses will likely continueto be able to meet lower NOX emission standards than even diesel hybrid buses until at least

How do we use this to enerate electrici 2 Electromagnetic Induction Faraday s Law Amazing discovery in 1830 sthat says that a moving metal in a magnetic eld creates an electrical current Michael Faraday was asked by a British government of cial of what use is electricity and he replied someday you can tax it Generator Demonstration Somehow it converts mechanical motion turning the crank into electrical energy that lights the bulb B turnin a wire coil in a ma netic field from a ermanent magnet in this case there is a changing magnetic ux and this induces an electrical current Faraday s Law

inside of permanent magnets Him a l l t creates an alternating a a AC and this electrical current 13 This was a great success by Westinghouse and Tesla In fact at the time there was a great rivalry between Edison promoting direct current DC and Tesla promoting AC In this arrangement is the ef ciency for generating electricity limited by a Carnot Maximum Ef ciency B No No it 39 Generator 39 Luau

equilibrium and no net acceleration or motion Additional Forces 1 Gravity downwards 2 Buoyancy force upwards Due to the Weight of all the air above the the air pressure is larger I I lower down near the earth and the 3 air pressure is smaller higher up in the atmosphere Buoyancy I Notice the lower pressure in Boulder than at sea level Thus there is also a buoyancy force upwards Gravity Archimedes

Energyinput Does this change the carbon neutrality of this biomass Clicker Question How much does the ethanol creation process rely on fossils fuels A Not at all it39s a classic form of using solar energy to create quotbiofuelquot B Only a tiny negligible amount C At almost every step of the way C is correct take a look at Fig 513 Assuming that the amount of energy from fossil fuels consumed in the ethanol creation is a fair bit less than the amount made available in the ethanol is it a good candidate for a gasoline replacement Why or why not The 2001 Net Energy Balance of CornEthanol Note

use electrostatic separation which is a very large scale operation Claims were made that they were restarting this program prior to the Gulf War IIquot It turned out not to be true Enriching Uranium Recall that natural Uranium is mostly U238 which does not easily ssion Thus to use in power plants it must be enriched in U235 up to 3 and higher for weapons Gaseous diffusion Uranium gas pumped

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Kyle Maynard Purdue

"When you're taking detailed notes and trying to help everyone else out in the class, it really helps you learn and understand the I made $280 on my first study guide!"

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
