That’s why transmission does not affect engine power
Myth or reality: Can transmission to affect engine power
What I do not argue motorists in the Network. Even goes to the ridiculous and absurd when a group of motorists begins to prove another group some technical issues with regards to vehicles, their technical characteristics, arguing in the style of “we know and prove to all that the Earth is flat”. Most of all, of course, disputes among the army of car owners and auto experts occurs on technical issues. In particular, in recent years, the Network has raised a wave of controversy about the transmission and engine power. What’s the point? What do you think, does the gearbox of the vehicle to the power output of the engine?
It would seem that the answer is obvious. But no, the Network has launched a battle on this topic. On many forums, groups in social networks and in comments to some articles in various media, writing on autotmatic, nafludit have many pages of reviews that you wonder how people have so much time in working days to create large works.
So, one side argues that transmission affects the engine power, while their opponents insist that the box is a common tool for the transfer of power and torque to the wheels and therefore in no way affect the power of the motor can neither in big, nor in the smaller party. So who is right?
First, let’s put points over i. The answer to this exciting many question lies in the understanding of its essence or in its correctness. It is no secret that a good topic can be easy to spoil incorrectly paraphrased the question. It turns out that many people in the Network more likely to argue and to prove your worth and erudition, misunderstanding a question or topic that the author filed is not entirely accurate.
Secondly, you need to understand the phrase “does the box power”? It depends on how you look at it. For example, if we are talking about the power that is developed by the engine at certain RPMs, of course, the power passing through the checkpoint is lost due to friction. In the end of the power according to the law of conservation of energy is converted into heat, heating the internal components of the engine.
If the question is about the engine power, then, undoubtedly, the transmission may not affect the production engine of this capacity.
As we have said, the drivetrain is a mechanical means of transferring torque and power from the engine to the drive wheels.
A statement that transmission directly interfere with the engine to produce power, is wrong and goes against the laws of physics.
It’s all the same what to say that pliers affect our strength and power, when we click on them. Pliers as PPC, is a common tool to perform a specific task. Accordingly, the pliers do not affect our potential strength and power.
It would seem that everything is simple and logical. But no, even with such simple explanations and examples are definitely people who are beginning to argue that transmission affects the generated power of the car because torque has a direct impact on the final power of the car.
However, many simply forget that torque is a rotational force on your box. But torque is not energy. And power, as you know, is energy.
For example, if the shaft is not rotating, the energy is not consumed. So the engine is no work to execute. If the shaft rotates, the engine power is formed by engine torque and rpm of the motor.
Box receives the end (already developed) power and specific torque, and passes all this by means of toothed gears of different transmission ratios.
Thus, any transmission is, in fact, the transformer of the transformation and transmission of torque to the wheel axis, changing the ratio of torque depending on engine speed. For example, if a certain broadcast transmission reduces the engine speed to a certain ratio, at the same time as the transmission increases the torque (power) at the same rate.
Power (stream power developed by the engine), in fact, remains the same on both shafts. But again, in theory. In practice, the power generated by the engine does not fall fully on the wheels. There is a natural loss. But the question today was not the case. Discussed in our today’s material was about whether the transmission to affect engine power. As you can see, the box is not a source of energy. Accordingly, to affect the power output of the car she can’t.
