HYBRID News with Sally Jensen

By sally Jensen.   (I fight for you).!!!!!!

Intro

Hello and good morning you are watching news with hybridŐs The hybrid I canŐt believe It actually re-charges its own battery! - Whenever you push on the brake pedal of your car, you are removing energy from the car (usually friction and heat). The faster a car is going, the more kinetic energy it has. The brakes of a car remove this energy and usually just waste it in the form of heat. A hybrid car can capture some of this energy and store it

 

 

 

 

 


in the battery to use later.

 Have you pulled your car up to the gas pump lately and been shocked by the high price of gasoline? As the pump clicked past $20, $30, $40 or even $50, maybe you thought about trading in your car for something that gets better mileage. Or, maybe you're worried that your car is creating too much pollution and hurting our earth (the "greenhouse" effect).

The word hybrid actually means taking two things and making them work together: like gas and electricity. Some people have owned a "hybrid" vehicle and they didn't even know it. For example, do you know anyone who owns a mo-ped (a motorized pedal bike)? A mo-ped is just a bike with a little engine on it. A mo-ped is a hybrid because it combines the power of a gasoline engine with the power of human legs (pedal power).      

Main Idea

This paragraph is about   The hybrid It uses cool shapes to cut down on wind-resistance. When you are driving on the freeway, most of the work your engine does goes into pushing the car through the air. Think of all the wind you feel when you stick your hand out the car window at 75 mph! This force is known as aerodynamic drag. This drag force can be reduced by the shape of the car. Some hybrids use a special, and cover up their wheels, to cut down on all the wind resistant So, anything that has two sources of power is called a hybrid. In fact, hybrid vehicles are all around us. Most of the locomotive trains we see are diesel-electric hybrids. They have a diesel engine and an electric engine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cities like Seattle have diesel-electric buses -- The buses use electricity from overhead wires or they can use their diesel engines when they are away from the wires.

                              Some Submarines are also hybrid vehicles They use nuclear power and electric power. They are called nuclear-electric hybrids.  It can shut off its own engine - A hybrid car really has two engines: gas and electric. It needs the gas engine for things like speeding up, or like going up big hills. But what about when the car is just sitting at a red light? Or, what about when you're just sitting there waiting for a hamburger at the Wendy's drive through? The hybrid turns off the gas motor when it doesn't need it. Even on the freeway, a hybrid will turn off the gas motor while you're just cruising a long...  Wow the hybrid Is just like a water when itŐs all gone you go and get some more but you realize that the waters not gone there is just more water every time you want water.

Conclusion

 Wow I canŐt believe it  the  hybrid works like that  well youŐve been watching news with hybridŐs now were going to review what we learned so

1What does the hybrid do with it own battery.

 2what are you removing from the car.

3 the hybrid uses cool ------- to cut down on wind resistant.

4  when you stick your hand out of the window at -------- mph

So now you know a lot about hybrids so bye bye and donŐt for get what I thought   cause if you do shame on you 

 

 

 

Brought to you by about hybrids .com or if you have trouble  then call 801- 978-654. And good day.  To all of you bye bye and donŐt let the bed bugs bite.

Brief Summary:

HowStuffWorks is awesome.  It's a website that tells about all kinds of technology.  This section tells about hybrids.  It has tons of advertising, but it also has good videos.

Brief Summary:

Wow! This is an awesome website that is really easy to understand.  It teaches all about hybrids, but it doesn't use big, fancy college words, like Wikipedia, etc.
