So this is already on my note for a couple of days
Basically, I watch a random vid on youtube, then I saw this data. Carbs have an energy density of 4000 cal/grams
And I was like… blown away
PS. I just check that data, not really accurate, but good enough
I immediately thought of Tesla, you know, that vehicle-tech company I look up to
I am not really sure will this idea even make sense in theory, which is probably not. But I will just write it here, just to clean up my note
Oh, it feels so satisfying to cross an item from a ToDo lists
Even without doing research and only using my own knowledge. I already saw a lot of problem with this idea
But one big problem is, efficiency
As far as I know, it is rare to see energy source that converts more than 50% of its potential energy into useful energy. Heck, an Internal Combustion Engine’s efficiency sits usually below 40%
And what do you think about carbs base energy source
One thing is for sure, carbs is a really good source of energy for a biological entity. Like us, human.
I learn about how our cells convert its chemical energy into heat and kinetic energy and blablabla in school. It was simply complex.
Now how would I make an engine out of it
HOLY SHIT!!! I JUST GOT AN IDEA!!! CARBS POWERED VEHICLE!!!
Patents pending, but the basic idea is simple! Why I only think about it just now?!
But us! Human! We can be the engine!!!! MIND = BLOWN!!!
I don’t really want to shout this idea out loud, somebody might steal it
But just like a couple days ago, I will share this idea, exclusively for you
Just walk your vehicle! Or better use a bicycle!
Yeah, this idea turned out to be so stupid. I liked it.
