Introduction Objectives Part 1 An equation for piston acceleration was derived from a given piston velocity equation. S p = Piston Acceleration = -aω 2 cos(θ)-[(a 2 ω 2 )/(2l)][(2cos(2θ Piston position, velocity, and acceleration were then calculated at different angles using a given connecting rod-to-crank ratio(L/a) and crankshaft rotational speed(N). Input Parameter Value Connecting rod-to-crank ratio (L/ a) 3.5 Crankshaft rotational speed (N) 3400 RPM The calculations were done using Microsoft Excel. The calculated results were put into a graph to show a visual representation of the data at different crank angles. 0.00 1.00 2.00 3.00 4.00 5.00 6.00 7.00 8.00 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 Crank Angle (degrees) Position (m)
