Lemon powered Supercar- WORLD’S LARGEST Lemon Battery

Lemon powered Supercar- WORLD’S LARGEST Lemon Battery

I was challenged by VW to make electricity to support their electric Supercar at Pike’s Peak on Sunday! I got a little help from William Osman and some kids and without hurting any feelings one was better than the other.

Check out William’s video here: https://youtu.be/oa5MRqrEdJI

Summary: I was challenged to charge VW’s electric supercar for the upcoming Pike’s Peak race. I first built a lemon battery with William Osman. Then we tried a regenerative zipline. Then we tried solar power with a twist.

    This video is really 3 videos for the price of one. UODATE: They SMASHED the course record by 15 seconds (new record- 7 mins 57 seconds)!! Iโ€™m gonna go ahead and take most of the credit.

    7:21 so cute

    Solar panels are the life hack of energy. I put a single panel (about 8×8 feet) and it charges a battery when Iโ€™m not home and then powers my AC when I get there.

    I set that bad boy to a timer so it cools the house down about 30 minutes before I get home lol

    Child labour ahhhh

  5. FinnishArmy says:

    Wait, how was the battery getting charged on the zipline when you use electricity to bring it back up?

    • Nathan Cartlidge says:

      ericlala that really isn’t the formula you want, you are looking for ke=1/2*m*v^2 if you want to analyse how speed affects energy: e=mc2 defines how much energy a child would release if you fully destroyed the atoms that they are made of iirc (for reference, a 30kg child would power the entire world for about three days if you did this).

    • angelgod 4 says:

      you bring down the mass of the kids and then the kids go back up by themselves
      so kids give energy to the system as they walk up again
      if they were to go with the mechanism that would not do it but since the mechanism goes up by itself it needs less energy so you can charge it

    • TheSkepticSkwerl says:

      Nathan Cartlidge e=mcยฒ is really just the formula to figure out how much energy is in a given mass. Nothing more. Nothing less.

    • Nathan Cartlidge says:

      TheSkepticSkwerl it is to figure out the atomic energy, not the kinetic energy

    • Average Thinking says:

      The simple answer: Interchangeable gear ratios.

    Child labour???

    0:07 Faster than a F1 car. What? Nothing beats a F1 in the corner or a lap time.

    That kid at 10:47 is killing it XD

  9. Griffin Rogers says:

    Ayyy itโ€™s ya boi, William Osman!

  10. Matt Heaton says:

    I almost teared up watching this video because of the way you involved the kids. Not only was it fun but it was making them work. They worked their bodies and minds. Anything to get them interested in learning!
    Way to go Mark!

    Name me one video that Mark didn’t mention his NASA career! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nvm there’s quite a few of them..

  12. Pixel says:

    so is this car a lemon, or is it a supercar?

  13. Mr Bennett says:

    Thumbs up for the Brigsby Bear shirt

    and the great video ig

    1:56 Nice lemon party.. I wanna do that but with chickens..

  15. PotetSoldier says:

    “When life gives you lemon” you charge a super car
