comment How can I compute heat retention of a heated ceramic floor?
Thanks! This is primarily to help determine the feasibility of electric heated floors before installation though. I don't mind making lots of assumptions, and it would be nice if I could get a very rough estimate of the change in temperature over time. Incidentally, the basement is living space so I don't want to insulate between the floors.

So the remaining unanswered part of the question is how do I compute the heat loss throughout the day once the heating elements are disabled?

comment How can I compute heat retention of a heated ceramic floor?
Thanks, this is a great start! In my case it's cost prohibitive to use a fluid heating system as well as concrete. I'm limited to electric with ceramic tile. I assume I can just plug in the density and thickness of ceramic tile and do the same math.

clarifying constant with respect to time, and shorter time vs. distance

Good point about the constant energy used by systems regardless of the vehicle acceleration.

I'm not asking about what happens after you reach a target speed--meaning for the purposes of the question, braking is irrelevant. Also, the question is not about maintaining speed--it's about reaching a speed. You may just want to delete your answer.
