  3. Automatic transmission are more fuel thirsty because they use a torque converter which consumes energy , the output shaft has about 3% rpm loss
  4. The thermostat regulates the temperature of the engine. When it is fully open the coolant flows from the engine block to the radiator and to maintain temperature when its closed the circuit to the radiator is off. It's usually located in the upper section of the engine block
  5. In torque-horsepower graph the horsepower is gradually increases from 0 until its reaches peak at rpm limiter whereas torque is mostly stable.
  6. Hello all, I have used autocad in the past for 2d design but its limited performance for 3d design made me look for sth else. I want to try solidworks anyone know where to download ? link
  7. the function of clutch is to transmit power from crankshaft to the input shaft of gearbox flywheel is used in internal combustion engines to store energy in passive strokes, heavier flywheel less work fom engine to keep rotating at constant speed
  8. Governor regulates fuel which is supplied in the cylinder whereas flywheel is installed in crankshaft and its function is to store energy during power stroke and helps maintain smooth transition.of power
  9. Can someone tell me what is the relation between the C% of steel and the degree of ductility? how that affects the yield strengh?
