1 gallon of gasoline
33.7 kilowatt hours.
\$4.50

1kg og Hydrigen
33.3  kilowatt hours.
\$16.00

How much does it cit to drove 200 miles?

To calculate the cost of driving 200 miles using gasoline or hydrogen, we need to consider the fuel efficiency (miles per gallon or miles per kilogram) of the vehicle using each fuel type, as well as the cost per gallon or per kilogram of the respective fuel.

Let's assume a gasoline-powered vehicle with an average fuel efficiency of 25 miles per gallon (mpg) and a price of \$4.50 per gallon of gasoline. For a distance of 200 miles, the vehicle would require 8 gallons of gasoline (200 miles / 25 mpg). Therefore, the cost of driving 200 miles would be:

Cost = Number of gallons * Price per gallon
= 8 gallons * \$4.50/gallon
= \$36.00

Now, let's consider a hydrogen-powered vehicle with an average fuel efficiency of 60 miles per kilogram (mpkg) and a price of \$16.00 per kilogram of hydrogen. For a distance of 200 miles, the vehicle would require approximately 3.33 kilograms of hydrogen (200 miles / 60 mpkg). Therefore, the cost of driving 200 miles would be:

Cost = Number of kilograms * Price per kilogram
= 3.33 kilograms * \$16.00/kilogram
= \$53.28

So, based on the given assumptions, it would cost \$36.00 to drive 200 miles using gasoline and \$53.28 to drive the same distance using hydrogen. Please note that these calculations are approximations and actual fuel efficiency and fuel prices may vary.
