Hi everyone its to be back hope you are all fine.
Today my topic is based on the main types of transport.
The three main types of land transport: Road transport, Rail transport and other pipeline, cable transport. Land transport is one type of transport or carrier. People, animals, or any other goods move one place to another by using land or road this is called land transport.
(i) land transport Land transport is the movement of people, animals, and goods from one location to another on land.There are several forms of land transport which include: road transport,rail transport,human portage. (a) human portage/human transport It is the using of human labour on carrying goods on heads,backs and also shoulders. it is also earliest form of transport used in early Africa and the rest of the outside world.Human powered transport also called the human portage is also the transport of person(s) and/or goods using human muscle power. Like animal-powered transport, human-powered transport has existed since time immemorial in the form of walking, running and swimming. Modern technology has allowed machines to enhance human-power.Although motorization has increased speed and load capacity, many forms of human-powered transport remain popular for reasons of lower cost, leisure,physical exercise and environmentalism. Human-powered transport is sometimes the only type available, especially in underdeveloped or inaccessible regions.In lab experiments an average “in-shape” cyclist can produce about 3 watts/kg for more than an hour (e.g., around 200 watts for a 70 kg (154 lb) rider), with top amateurs producing 5 watts/kg and elite athletes achieving 6 watts/kg for similar lengths of time. Elite track sprint cyclists are able to attain an instantaneous maximum output of around 2,000 watts, or in excess of 25 watts/kg; elite road cyclists may produce 1,600 to 1,700 watts as an instantaneous maximum in their burst to the finish line at the end of a five-hour-long road race.
The main types of human transport include;
- Climbing and mountaineering
- Ice skating, roller skating, and inline skating
- Cross-country skiing.
