Basic EquationsEdit

Power lost to:

Rolling resistance
$ P_{rr} = C_{rr} m g V $
Aerodynamic drag
$ P_{aero} = \frac{1}{2} \rho V^3 C_D A $

If you gather data on the race route, you can determine how much power will be lost to stop signs and traffic signals:

Stops/Starts
$ P_{stops} = \frac{1}{2} m V^3 \frac{stops}{distance} (1 - \eta_{regen}) $
