How Do Freewheels Work?

I've been looking at diagrams and articles about freewheels and freehubs recently, but I don't really get how they work.

I don't know about you guys, but I am going to my old high school. It is built like a prison(literally), fireproof, has many fall-back options and could be easily defended.

I know they will have the answers, but I don't know if they will have the problems worked out, which is what I am looking for.
And I don't really see what they could do, disqualify me, I guess. Though I know I failed that test horribly, so it won't really matter.

The RV then drives off. Then there was one scene where h...

Re: Can Someone ID This For Me?

Well, I opened it up again and it looks like it came from there. There is a cable almost directly under it that goes to the plate that connects to the battery. I know almost nothing of circuitry. If you could tell me what I was looking for, that'd be great.

Re: Can Someone ID This For Me?

Oh, coolio. Thanks, bro. Yeah, thats what it says. I don't plan on putting a new one in there though. I'm pretty sure all it does is control the battery level indicator, which isn't really all that important.
And plus, I almost set my room on fire when I took it apart to find that thing.

So, I was riding my electric skateboard and noticed that it goes a lot slower once the battery level gets around halfway. I was wondering why it slows down like that when there is still quite a lot of power left in the battery. Also, is there a formula or something that would tell me how much energy...

Regenerative Braking

So, I was looking at electric skateboards earlier and then I got the bright idea of giving one regenerative braking to increase the range.
Can someone tell me if this is possible or not? And if so, how I would go about doing that.
