How much energy (in kilowatt-hours) is required to transport a 170 pound person 16 miles on an electric train?

Question by kewldude471: How much energy (in kilowatt-hours) is required to transport a 170 pound person 16 miles on an electric train?

Answer by someguy
ok well work is force x distance. and work is just difference in energy so if you take initial energy to be 0, energy is equal to force x distance.
now 170 pounds is about 77.27kg and the force is 757.27N. the distance is 16 miles = 25.75km so the energy is 19499.397 J. now a Watt is 1J/s. so 1W * 1s = 1J. so 19499.397J = 19499.397W-s. = ~19.5kW-s. multiply this by 1h/3600s (which is 1 cuz theyre equivalent) and you get 0.005416666 kw-h.

hope you understand that. let me know if you need more help

Why not use hydrogen powered cars?

Nuclear reactors can easily extract hydrogen from water. That hydrogen can then be used in car’s fuel cells.
