Homework Help: Electric Power in a vehicle

  1. Oct 31, 2011 #1
    I must design a lunar roving vehicle. One of the criteria is that the electric power cannot exceed 9 volts. My teacher said that is I have 2 batteries powering the front wheels separately then the power remains at 9 volts and not at 18 volts. Is this true?

    Thanks!

    Unless the batteries are connected in series, it is true.
