    because the advances in the battery and power technology, upward prices of oil and emissions. The electrical car originally used a lead acid based battery, today however the lithium ion rechargeable battery is used. The battery of the electric car stores chemical energy and converts the energy to electricity. The chemistry of the electric car is found mainly in the battery. In the battery there is a chemical reaction in cells which then produces a voltage. These batteries usually have 200 to 400 small

  • Lithium Ion Batteries And Its Effects

    1738 Words  | 7 Pages

    Lithium ion batteries were introduced commercially during the early 1990’s as the desire for smaller and more lightweight rechargeable batteries grew with the increased demand for the improvement of portable electronic devices (Yoshino, 2012). Prior to this there were commercially available rechargeable batteries already on the market, predominately in the form of lead-acid (PbA), Nickel-Cadmium (NiC) and Nickel Metal-hydride (NiMH) batteries. The development of the Lithium ion (Li-ion) battery began due

  • Consumer Reports : A New Fuel Efficiency Champion

    845 Words  | 4 Pages

    Consumer Reports announces a new fuel efficiency champion. When it comes to fuel efficiency, no gasoline or diesel model ever built outperforms the all-new 2016 Toyota Prius. Such were the findings of Consumer Reports following the non-profit consumer organization’s internal testing of the hybrid, which achieved 52 mpg overall, besting the previous record-holding 2000 Honda Insight by 1 mpg. The results are even more noteworthy when you consider the Prius seats five and is some 1,200 pounds heavier

    smooth acceleration. Some of the models of EVs have an electric motor for each wheel. Having these four motors not only allows for better propulsion, but also for the use of braking and changing the kinetic energy back into chemical energy in the batteries. The traction that the car gets is also increased with each wheel driving. In some of the EV models the electric motors can be mounted directly inside the mounting for the wheel, which enables a loss of all the moving parts between the motor and

    long until people began to see the potential of electric vehicles. In the early 1980's research teams were developed, sponsored by major automobile companies, to reinvent the electric vehicle by taking advantage of new technological advancements in batteries, system integration and aerodynamics. Soon word broke out that the government was going to mandate energy diversity and air quality and "many of the leading automobile companies, electric utility companies and the academic community began to do researching

  • Secondary Batteries

    741 Words  | 3 Pages

    Batteries are essential for the wireless heart monitors to operate. A battery is composed of electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy to electrical energy and consists of a cathode (the positive terminal) and an anode (the negative terminal). The battery needs to connect to the external circuits of the wireless heart monitor, and electrolytes move and cause the electrolytes to act as ions and preform work. There are two ways in which batteries can behave: a primary and a secondary
