"The Transition to Electric Cars: Some Whys and Hows," Paul V. Pancella, Western Michigan University

There is reason to believe that in the near future, more and more electricity will be used to power transportation, significantly reducing the amount of petroleum-derived fuels burned in internal combustion engines.  This talk will explore some of the Physics behind this belief.  We will focus on one major part of the transportation sector, passenger automobiles, exploring the pros and cons of currently available technology.  The presenter will share his personal experience with a conventional gasoline-powered car which he has converted to pure electric power.
