Streetcar We chose the modern streetcar because it is super street friendly. It will reduce the number of traffic jams and help move cars along more expeditiously. It can hold over 120 passengers at one time. It goes an average controllable speed of 47 miles per hour. We also chose the modern streetcar because we hope it will turn out like the one in Portland, Oregon. The streetcar in Portland, Oregon is very successful and helpful. That’s our main goal. The modern street car is the best way to go in our book.

Streetcar vs. light rail The light rail transit goes 6 miles per hour faster than the streetcar, but that is because it is not on the street. It is on tracks that go through tunnels and bridges. The light rail can hold more people than the streetcar can. This is because the light rail is longer than the streetcar. However the light rail does nothing to improve traffic, which the streetcar does. Unlike the light rail systems, they operate exclusively or almost exclusively in streets, often mixed with automobile traffic, and passengers board from street-level stopping places.

Velocity and acceleration As we all know velocity is speed in a given direction. The modern streetcar’s average speed is 47 miles per hour. On our project board, our train is going 47 miles per hour north. That is its velocity. As we all know acceleration is a change in velocity. So, since our transit is streetcar, it’ll stop at red lights normally and turn corners. This is a change in velocity, so it is acceleration.

Simple machines Lever Incline plane Screw Wheel and Axle

How they are in the Streetcar Lever- the gear shift is an example of a 2 nd class lever. Incline plane-The must have a handicap ramp. This is an example of an incline plane. Screw-The way the a streetcar is made there are a lot of nuts and bolts. These are examples of screws. Wheel and axle- the steering wheel is an example of a wheel and axle. The wheels are examples of a wheel and axle.
