Abstract
Notes
Jim Motavalli.
22 cm.
Note the mistake in the physics of the assumption, at the top of page 164, that weight makes a difference in mileage in freeway driving. A physics student should be able to reason that changing weight only makes a difference in the efficiency of acceleration and not cruising. It is interesting to note that accelerating from 30 to 60 does take 3 times as much energy as accelerating from 0 to 30 (units don't matter).
