Thank you. I didn’t read all of the pissing match above, but

@ZenRockGarden claims to know physics but really only has a rudimentary understanding. He/she assumes an ideal, lossless system where all energy is conserved and the efficiency of the batteries and motors is perfect and unrelated to power/current draw. All of these assumptions are false. Furthermore, many of the inefficiencies are nonlinear. There is likely an optimal rate of acceleration that optimizes motor load & efficiency with battery efficiency. It would be interesting to see what that is but I haven’t seen or ready anythign about it.

@ZenRockGarden - for starters, go read up on internal resistance of batteries then come back and correct your posts.

Edit - human exercise physiology is completely different from automotive power and efficiency so there’s zero point in comparing the two.
