  • Auto Producers In Us - 1,246 words
    Auto Producers In US The author intends to distinguish sharp differences in national origin of production and distribution of motor vehicles. American Big Three producers (Chrysler, Ford and GM) and Japanese-owned manufacturers (Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Suzuki, Daihatsu and Isuzu). By distinguishing b/w these differences, a vehicle may be classified as domestic or foreign made. It provides a locational framework for understanding what an American automobile is. Although few are 100% domestic or foreign, the percentage of national origin of any vehicle sold in the U.S. can be determined. Difference b/w domestic and foreign made Sorting domestic from foreign cars is a geograph ...

  • Evironmentalism - 2,824 words
    Evironmentalism Evironmentalism: The Next Step Broad Social Change Through Personal Commitment Introduction In the last thirty years, America has witnessed an environmental revolution. New laws like the 1963 Clean Air Act and the 1974 Safe Drinking Water Act forged new ground in political environmentalism. Social phenomena like Earth Day, organized by Dennis Hayes in 1970, and the beginning of large-scale recycling, marked by Oregon's 1972 Bottle Bill, have help change the way Americans think about the environment. As we approach the third millennium, however, we must reconsider our place on the planet and reflect on our efforts and progress towards a sustainable society. As global warming b ...

  • Forced Air Induction - 1,483 words
    Forced Air Induction The Garret Aviation VNT-25 The idea of forced air induction by turbine, or turbo, is not new and has it's mass production roots in WWII fighter planes. What is new, however, is its application to passenger automobiles. Unlike a near constant high RPM fighter engine, an automobile requires wide-open throttle (WOT) power availability throughout its entire operating range. Previous automotive turbo applications acted like an on-off power switch with a five second delay, decreasing drivability, rather than providing the smooth linear powerband of a normally aspirated engine. Because the turbine is in a fixed position in the exhaust stream, it was plagued with sometimes uncon ...

  • Hybrid Electric Vehicles, An Evaluation Essay - 1,029 words
    Hybrid Electric Vehicles, An Evaluation Essay A growing dependence on imported oil, along with a heightened concern about the environment, has led to my increased interest in electric cars as an alternative to traditional gas-powered automobiles. True electric vehicles do not seem to achieve the requirements of the American car-buying public because of their high cost, which can be up to $30,000 or more for a compact car (Motavalli 2). Battery systems for electric vehicles are improving, but with their limited range of travel, they are still not feasible for most people. In addition, I believe that the average person making the decision to purchase environmentally friendly vehicles would dem ...
