Textbook Problem

government study concludes that burning fossil fuels to power our automobiles causes too much pollution. What if Congress decided that all cars and trucks must be powered by batteries? Would this solve the air pollution problems caused by transportation?

Interpretation Introduction


To determine whether Congress deciding all cars and trucks must be powered by batteries will solve the pollution problem caused by transportation.

Concept Introduction:

The air pollution is mostly caused by the fossil fuel burning like oil, natural gas, coal and gasoline which gives power to the vehicles and helps in transportation.


In U.S., approximately 150 billion gallons of fossil fuel is burnt for the use of vehicles. The content of thermal energy in these fuels are up to 33.5 KWh per gallons. So the total thermal energy from these fuel burning is 4, 500 TWh that cause too much of pollution as in one gallon it has 8, 000 grams of carbon dioxide. The emission of carbon dioxide is the major cause for the global warming.

To avoid the pollution the electric vehicles are been suggested where there will no emission of gases. The vehicles do not agitate any fumes that are polluted. So this can be a better option to improve the atmosphere quality in the states. The electric vehicle has less movable parts and it does not require changes of oil and filter. The electric vehicle uses electricity where major portion are renewable resources...
