What would happen if you doubled the area of the piston on the right side of the hydraulic system?

Double the force applied by that piston and half the speed that it moves.


How many times does a piston move up and down in a second?

That is dependent on the RPM of the crankshaft. The higher the RPM's, the more times per second the piston makes a full stroke.


How can electrical energy be produced by heat energy?

For example, in a combustion engine, the heat makes the piston expand, producing movement. If this is part of a generator, it can produce electricity. The idea of a generator is that, when a wire coil moves through a magnetic field, a voltage will be induced.Note: Heat energy can't be converted 100% to other types of energy. Even under ideal circumstances, only part of the heat will be converted.For example, in a combustion engine, the heat makes the piston expand, producing movement.

What is piston effort?

The driving force action on the piston is called piston effort.In other words the net resultant of all the other forces acting on the piston is called piston effort.

What is piston diameter?

A piston is a plunger, or a plug that moves inside a cube, a cylinder. The piston diameter is the diameter of this plunger/plug. It's a tiny bit smaller than the diameter of the cylinder the piston moves in.

What causes the piston ring groove clearance to widen in service?

As the piston moves up and down in the cylinder it also moves the piston rings up and down in the grooves. With the rings moving up and down it gradually increases the side clearence. Material is taken off from both the piston groove and the ring.


What is a cylinder jug?

The "cylinder jug" is the cylinder. This is the area that the piston and piston rings moves up and down in when the engine is turning.


How does a piston moves downward in d suction operation in a 4stroke engine?

The piston is moved by the connecting rod which in turn is moved by the crankshaft. It is only on the power stroke that the piston moves the connecting rod, crankshaft and all the rest of the engine, in all the other strokes the engine, crankshaft and connecting rod move the piston.

What is meant by the term internal combustion engine?

An internal combustion engine is where the pistons open up, gas goes in them and then they close. The pressure causes an explosive reaction from the gas. That reaction moves the piston up and down. The piston is connected to the transmission and drive train. The transmission is connected to the wheels and when the piston moves the transmission moves and so on. When the piston opens up again, the old gas leaves through the exhaust pipe and new gas goes into the piston repeating the cycle over and over again.


What is the function of gudgeon pin in a piston?

The gudgeon pin or wrist pin (as it is called in the US), connects the piston to the connecting rod and provides a bearing for the connecting rod to pivot upon as the piston moves.
