MACHINE DESIGN - An 3-7-1 PROBLEM 3-7 Statement: The piston of an internal-combustion engine is connected to its connecting rod with a "wrist pin." Find the force on the wrist pin if the 0.5-kg piston has an acceleration of 2 500 g. Units: kN 10 3 newton . Given: Mass of piston M piston 0.5 kg . Acceleration of piston a piston 2500 g . Assumptions: 1. The force on the wrist pin due to the weight of the piston is very small compared with the
