00. 5 in3 Larger engines are constructed with more than one cylinder. For multicylinder engines. the term engine displacement (ED) is used. Engine displacement is the product of the cylinder displacement times the number of cylinders. 8 in3 In determining the engine displacement for multiple cylinder engines, Equations (5-1) and (5-2) usually are combined. 1t B25) ED = ( 4 - xn (5-3) COMPRESSION RATIO The compression ratio is an engine characteristic related to engine efficiency, that is. the ability of the engine to convert energy in the fuel to useful mechanical energy.

Thus. there is no need for a spark plug or a carburetor. DISPLACEMENT Displacement is the cylindrical volume that a piston displaces as it moves through one stroke. It is equal to the area of the piston multiplied by the length of the stroke. Displacement is one of the factors that determine the amount of horsepower an engine will produce. Expressed mathematically. piston displacement is: 1txB2 PO =-4-xS (5-1) where: PD = Piston displacement in cubic inches (in3) B = Bore of cylinder (diameter).

Solution: Using Equation (4-2): P _DxF - = T 12 ft x 100lb 2 min WORK. POWER, TORgUE. AND HORSEPOWER 31 = 1200 ft-lb 2 min = 600 ft~lb mIn Notice that the unit associated with power is a combination of the individual units for the variables. " This is the "time-rate" at which work is being done. Remember. always write down the units that are associated with a number. 50 minute. How much power is being developed? lb mIn Up to this point we have used easy-to-understand values with units of feet for distance.
