  1. 1. White Hat Information of the first car By: Jordy and ShareeceThe first car was invented in 1886 by Karl Benz in Germany. He created a steam engined car that can carry people.
  2. 2. The cable car was created in 1899 but startedfunctioning in the year 1902. This year the Wellington cable car is celebrating 110 years of service to the city of Wellington. The cable car was created byprisoners from the nearby Terrace Gaol, who worked in shifts around the clock. The recent prices for an adult are $3.50 one way or $6 to go there and back. The recent prices for kids are $1 one way or $2 there and back. 100people can fit in the cable car at one time. The cable car startsat Lambton Quay and ends at The Botanical Gardens. There is a motor at the top of the hill that drives the pulley which pulls the cable up the hill and to the top. It then releases the cable car which allows it to slide slowly down the hill.
  3. 3. Most of NZ cars come from Japan because NZ has no car factories to make any car.Japan ship our cars over the sea in big containerNew Zealand gets the second hand Japanese cars because they are cheaper (Ex)Toyota New Zealand $6,000 2nd hand cars shipped over from Japan cost $4,000 sothat’s why we get the 2nd hand cars from Japan.Japan own car factories such as Nissan and ToyotaCars from Japan have been driven less (low kms) so that they last longer in NZ Toyota Nissan
  4. 4. Wellington Trolley Buses By Cappy & Kayla The Trolley bus in Wellington has been apart of the Wellington public transport system since 1949. The first Trolleybus route in Wellington operated between 1924 and 1932. The Trolleybus system was improved in 1945, . when it was decided to gradually to replace the city’s trams with Trolleybuses. The routes length was 50 KM. Since 1945there are 9 routes and the operators are GOWELLINGTON. How trolleybuses are powered: Trolleybuses are electrical buses that draws it’s electricity from overhead wires using spring-loaded trolley poles. Two wires and poles are required to complete the electrical circuit. If there is a power cut or something like that the Trolleybus won’t work. If the bus bounces off the wires it won’t work.
  5. 5. Push and pull forces A force is any influence that causes an object to undergo a certain change, either concerning its movement, direction or geometrical construction. It is measured with the SI UNIT with Newton and represented by the symbol F. In other words a force is that which cancause an object with mass to change its velocity (velocity means a speed of an object.) to accelerate, or which can cause a flexible object to deform. (accelerate mean is the rate of velocity.) Force can also be described by intuitive concepts such as a push or pull. A force has both magnitude and direction, making it a vector quantity (vector means a vector is a geometric object that has a magnitude and direction).
  6. 6. What are the benefits of the battery powered car? future super-cars will most likely be built on the same platform as the electric Roadster  they go will about 150 mph. Callum P & Drew
  7. 7. Chrysler AudiBMW NZ manufacturing of vehicles Ford New Zealand began in 1936.Since the closure of its assembly plant in Auckland in 1997, all of its productofferings are fully imported. By Hosea Ford fiat
  8. 8. What different types of cars are common in NZ? was the James Alexander Holden founder of the Holden in 1856.Hondaare served in NZ. Every month there is a magazine that come out and talks about Nz cars. By Josh & Thijs
  9. 9. Burt Munro.Herbert James “ Burt” Munro (25 of March 1899 - 6 of January 1978) was a NZ motorcycle racer, famous for setting an under 1,000 cumbic centimetres and the size of its engine world record at Bonneville, 26 of august 1967. this record still stands today. Munro was 68 and was riding a 74–year-old machine when he set his last record. Done by: Illandra& Britney.
  10. 10. What is the fastest car in the world.The fastest car in the world is the bugatti Veyron. It’s topspeed is 271 Miles an hour (467 Km and hour) and it canreach 0-60 in 2.4 SECONDS!!! The Bugatti Veyron costaround about $ 2,400,000( 2nd most Expensive car in the world) It was made in France and was made in 2008. By Caleb & Liam
  11. 11. What is renewable energy Renewable energy is a term used to describe energy that is derived from resources like the sun and the wind rain and tides and geothermal heat
  12. 12. Ford GT40 A 1968 Ford GT40 used to film Steve McQueen in the 1971 racing film Le Mans was bought for 11million dollars. McQueen insisted the race scenes in Le Mans be as cool as possible. He chose the GT40 as a camera car, cutting off its roof and installing a seat for the cameraman outside the car, to film the movie while speeding down the track at 150 miles per hour! The Ford GT40 is a mid-engine two- seater sports car. 241km is 150 MPH in kmph. The Ford GT40 runs on petrol and can either be an automatic or a manual Mya & Khayla
  13. 13. The Maglev (magnetic levitation) train uses magnets to drivevehicles rather than using mechanical methods, such aswheels and axles. With maglev a vehicle is lifted a shortdistance away from a guide way using magnets to create bothlift and thrust. Maglev vehicles are made to move moresmoothly and quietly and to require less care than wheeledtransport. It is said that non-reliance on friction also meansthat its acceleration and deceleration is way better than that ofexisting forms of transport. The power needed for levitation isnot a lot of the overall energy use; most of the power is for airresistance, as with any other high-speed form of transport.The first Maglev train was made in New york, United states,1968 the second one in Hamburg, Germany 1979The third one was made in Birmingham, United Kingdom 1984–1995Lots of good conditions existed when the link was built such as:The British Rail Research vehicle was 3 tonnes and extension to the 8 tonne vehicle was easy.Electrical power was easily available.The airport and rail buildings were suitable for terminal platforms.Only one crossing over a public road was required and no steep gradients were involved.Land was owned by the railway or airport.Local industries and councils were supportive.Some government finance was provided and because of sharing work, the cost perorganization was low. This rail way no longer exists
