Tesla Marketing Plan

(Received 7 October 2011; final version received 10 January 2012) This case study provides analysis of the strategic marketing plan of electric vehicle manufacturer, Tesla Motors. It has profound marketing management implications, as it addresses this investigation from the unique perspective of Tesla’s ‘new technology’based approach to automobile marketing and relates it to the successful marketing model of Apple Computer. This marketing approach is counter to the traditional automobile industry’s marketing management approach which favors mass marketing and mass production….

Electrolytic Cells

Electrochemical cells can be divided into two main groups. Voltaic cells are capable of producing electric current. Electrolytic cells rely upon an external source of current to bring about a chemical reaction. Electroplating precious metals (gold, silver, or platinum) onto base metals is an example of this type of process. In this experiment copper will be plated on to an electrode using a battery as the external source of energy. The reaction will be timed, and the current passing through…

Gillette’s Acquisiton of Duracell

The purpose of this report is to first discuss the reasons why Duracell’s performance has been decreasing over the past four years, and then recommend some strategic actions Gillette should take to turn Duracell around. This report will begin by providing a brief introduction on the acquisition of Duracell by Gillette, followed by the reasons it lacked success, and finally end with the proposed recommendations for Duracell. Currently, Gillette’s operating segments include personal grooming, small appliances, and oral care products,…

How Batteries Can Change the Way We Live_

Battery is a device, which consists of one or more electrochemical cells, which converts stored chemical energy into electrical energy. Batteries are used everywhere in our daily life. We use them in technology, like mobile phones, computers, music players and etc. We use them for medical reasons, like wheelchairs, defibrillator, pace makers, hearing aids and many others. Batteries have solver an enormous amount of problems. For instance, without batteries there wouldn’t be mobile phones and computers. Batteries work by reduction…

Evaluation of Alternatives

Boyle has three alternatives for approaching the Visor project: he can decline the project, he can move forward with the project without a thorough Phase 0 and Phase I as requested by Handspring, or he can request additional time to complete the project using IDEO’s established design process. The advantages of the first option are that IDEO would not risk being associated with a sub-par design. However, they would also lose the opportunity to spearhead an exciting new project and…

Electric Motor Lab Report

The goal of this experiment is to build a simple electric motor and observe how it works. I will attempt to make it spin evenly by attaching it to a battery via jumper cables. The independent variable is the battery charge (1.5 V) and the dependent variable is how fast the motor spins. The lab doesn’t have multiple experiments for us to test this but I would hypothesize that the two variables would have a positive correlation: higher voltage, faster…

Trespass to Person

In this essay, I will start of by discussing what is the meaning of trespass to persons and three type of trespass, which are assault, battery and false imprisonment. These three types of trespass to person must have a few of elements in order to establish. Therefore I will explain the elements and emphasis on intention of each trespass to person. Besides, I will give cases and examples for easy understanding. After that, I will discuss whether intention still important…

Potential of Coconut Water as Source of Electricity

One of the major problems in our country is energy shortage. There are many methods and proposals on how to conserve it such as the use of batteries. One of these is an electrolytic cell. It contains an electrolyte through which an externally generated electric current is passed by a system of electrodes (electrically positive electrode is called the anode and the negative electrode the cathode) in order to produce an electrochemical reaction. Such a reaction involves the transfer of…

A Proposed Computerized Payroll System

Chapter I INTRODUCTION Electricity is a naturally occurring force that exists everywhere and it is used to power many things that are used in our everyday life. Without electricity, people’s lives would be very different and in many cases more difficult. There are many ways to generate electricity; one way in producing electricity is the use of solar cells. Solar cells or photovoltaic cells are made of semiconductor materials such as silicon and designed to convert light energy into electrical…

the Potential of Malunggay Leaf Extract

Electrical phenomena have been studied since antiquity, though progress in theoretical understanding remained slow until the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Even then, practical applications for electricity were few, and it would not be until the late nineteenth century that engineers were able to put it to industrial and residential use (Jones, 1991). The foundation of modern electrical science was definitely established in the Elizabethan Age (http://inventors.about.com/cs/inventorsalphabet/a/electricity.htm). Scientists often depict it as the golden age in English history. During this age,…

Potato Powered Light Bulb

1) Get a potato and cut it in half. Then make a small slit in each half just big enough to put a penny into. 2) Cut two pieces of copper wire and wrap one around one of the pennies a few times, and wrap the other one around the other penny a few times as well. 3) Take a third piece of copper wire, and wrap it around one of the zinc-plated nails or screws, and then place the…

Speed Control

Abstract: We know the value of the lives and it has to be preserved until the best by themselves. But, unfortunately many of the people doesn’t understand the value of the lives and do some harm to themselves and also to other. One of those kinds is ROAD ACCIDENTS. These road accidents mainly occur due to the over-speed of the vehicles, mostly by the youngsters. To prevent these road accidents I’m proposing a system that could reduce rate of accidents…

Care of the Older Adult Questions

a. Define Baby Boomers-(those born from 1946–1964) reach retirement age (as of 2011). They will make up the world’s largest part of society. In addition, the boomers will be the largest cohort of retirees ever. Also, the boomers may become the most-engaged cohort of older adults. The boomers will be the healthiest cohort of older adults. The boomers will be the best-educated cohort of older adults. First, the boomers will be the longest-lived cohort of older adults. b. List some…
