For the Procedure:
Battery powered car - prepared in getting ready
A battery powered car is environment friendly, budget friendly and easy to construct, so here are some guidelines on how to make a battery powered car. These cars provide an incredible driving experience as they have increased stability on the road because of their lower center of gravity and higher initial acceleration because of their light weight.
For Getting Ready:
One battery powered car per group - inexpensive cars are available at toy stores. Cars are also available through science supply catalogs.
2 batteries - the correct size needed to fit the car
Wire cutters and strippers (for teacher use only)
Optional - a metal bar cut to the length of the battery size needed
Tom: It has occurred to me that the “cars as a national battery” would be much more expensive than just having the battery in your garage attached to the grid: the battery is much cheaper than the car. An arrangement that the power company would pay the battery-on-grid homeowner could amortize a battery much sooner than amortizing a battery powered car. A revenue-generating strategy for the homeowner, just like having the power company pay the homeowner for excess power generation. As I have commented to an earlier post on Do The Math, the current arrangement of excess solar power subtracted from your electrical bill but no opportunity to get a check from PGE makes roof top solar far less attractive.
