John D. Barrow: The Math of Trains and Boats and Planes
AIRED:
Simple math can reveal how energy efficient different forms of transport are. Professor John D. Barrow looks at how to drive as fuel efficiently as possible. When does buying a small car help?

Simple estimates can also tell us about the relative efficiencies of traveling by road, rail or air - and even by bike.For downloadable files and the transcript of this lecture, please visit the event's page on the Gresham College website: Trains and Boats and Planesmoreless
