39). 75 m ~I 1m I I I I F •\V [li] Science for Motor Vehicle Engineers the support. What force needs to be applied at the right end to put the beam in a state of equilibrium? 40 has a negligible mass and pivots around the fulcrum at the far right end. 5 m from' the right end. What upward force applied at the far left end is required to balance the beam? 41. Find the reaction forces that the knife-edges apply to the beam. Consider one end of the beam as a pivot, even though the forces are in equilibrium, and apply the principle of moments.

A thorough understanding of force is very important. The whole subject of mechanics is based on how forces act on matter, whether it is stationary or in motion. In a motor vehicle, a force of some sort acts on every part. The force of gravity acts on the vehicle, affecting the design of all components. 15). The gas pressure causes a force to act down on the piston crown. This 'push' is transferred to the connecting rod and to the crankshaft, converting linear motion into rotary motion. 15 Science for Motor Vehicle Engineers Force as a vector quantity Quantities dealt with in engineering problems can usually be put in one of two groups: scalar quantities and vector quantities.

If the sides of the tank are not all straight then look for a way that it could be positioned on a level surface so that all the sides are straight and vertical. 12). The volume of this tank is as follows: base = nr2 volume = n? x h where h = height Science for Motor Vehicle Engineers Height, h Area =nr? 13). 3. e. bottom dead centre, and consider the volume in the cylinder above the piston. e. top dead centre. The volume above the piston now is called the clearance volume. e. the cylinder volume that the piston sweeps through.
