Question

On a drive of 1,406 miles how much CO_{2} do you release
in to the atmosphere in kilograms. Assume your car consumes 32
miles to the gallon.

Your gas is 100% octane, and has a mass of 2.7 kg/US gallon

Answer #1

On a road trip of 105 miles your car has a gas consumption of 33
miles per gallon. Assuming that the gasoline you burn is 100%
octane, how many kg of carbon dioxide do you release into the
atmosphere when you make that drive? The density of octane is 703
kg/m3 and one US gallon is 3.79 liters.

On a road trip of 142 miles your car has a gas consumption of 31
miles per gallon. Assuming that the gasoline you burn is 100%
octane, how many kg of carbon dioxide do you release into the
atmosphere when you make that drive? The density of octane is 703
kg/m3 and one US gallon is 3.79 liters.

Suppose that you drive 30, 000 miles per year and gas averages
$4 per gallon. Complete parts a. and b. below.
a. What will you save in annual fuel expenses by owning a hybrid
car averaging 30 miles per gallon rather than an SUV averaging 9
miles per gallon?
b. If you deposit your monthly fuel savings at the end of each
month into an annuity that pays 4.8% compounded monthly, how much
will have saved at the end of...

Your friend drives
1,100 miles to visit family in Denver. Her car averages 32 mpg.
a) How many gallons of
gas will be needed to drive to the destination? Round
to the nearest hundredth, if necessary. gallons 2
points
b) How much
CO2 will be produced by driving to the destination?
Round to the nearest whole number. pounds of
CO2

1. Automobiles are often implicated as contributors to global
warming because they are a source of the greenhouse gas CO2. How
many pounds of CO2 would your car release in a year if it was
driven 190. miles per week?
Gasoline is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons. In your
calculations, assume that gasoline is octane (molecular formula
C8H18) and that it is burned completely to CO2 and H2O in the
engine of your car. Also assume that the car averages...

While in Europe, if you drive 125 km per day, how much money
would you spend on gas in one week if gas costs 1.10 euros per
liter and your car's gas mileage is 29.0 mi/gal ? Assume that
1euro=1.26dollars? .

You need to buy some chicken for dinner tonight. You found an ad
showing that the store across town has it on sale for $2.99 a

Hybrid cars are touted as a "green" alternative; however, the
financial aspects of hybrid ownership are not as clear. Consider
the 2014 Edsel 550h, which had a list price of $5,800 (including
tax consequences) more than the comparable Edsel 550. Additionally,
the annual ownership costs (other than fuel) for the hybrid were
expected to be $390 more than the traditional sedan. The EPA
mileage estimate was 24 mpg for the hybrid and 16 mpg for the
traditional sedan.

A truck with a mass of 1800 kg traveling 32 miles per hour
collides with a car (mass = 1100 kg) sitting at a stop sign. The
two lock together and both cars slide into the intersection. Both
drivers slam on the brakes in desperation. The coefficient of
friction between the tires and the road is 0.58.
a. What is the momentum of each car before the collision?
b. What is their combined momentum after the collision? Justify
your answer....
