Homework #1—Due Thur. Sept 3. Solutions Read: Chapter 1 Problems: 1.1 Describe the major functions of the following: Piston—seals the cylinder and transmits the gas pressure force to the connecting rod by reciprocating movement; its movement also brings in fresh air mixture, compresses air and exhausts burned gases. Connecting rod—connects the piston to the crankshaft to transform the reciprocating motion of the piston to rotating motion; transmits forces from the crank to piston and vice versa. Crankshaft—Transmits the usable mechanical power; converts reciprocating motion of piston to rotating motion (with connecting rod and crank throws). Cams and Camshaft—open and close the inlet and exhaust valves at the appropriate times in the cycle via timing belt connection to crankshaft. Valves—allow/ control the flow of gases in and out of the cylinder Intake and Exhaust manifolds—move fresh air (intake) and burned gases (exhaust) toward and away from the cylinder.
