The Internet has many places to ask questions about anything imaginable and find past answers on almost everything.

## Which of the following is the tendency of a system to become more disordered?

There is a tendency in nature for systems to proceed toward a state of greater disorder or randomness. Entropy is a measure of the degree of randomness or disorder of a system. Entropy is an easy concept to understand when thinking about everyday situations.

## What are the types of engine?

Types of engines and how they work

• Thermal engines. Internal combustion engines (IC engines) External combustion engines (EC engines) Reaction engines.
• Electrical engines.
• Physical engines.

## What type of engine is the best?

• 3.3L Turbocharged DOHC V-6 (Kia Stinger)
• 2.5L Atkinson DOHC 4-Cyl./HEV (Toyota Camry Hybrid)

## How do you classify an engine?

Automotive Engines are generally classified according to following different categories:

1. Internal combustion (IC) and External Combustion (EC)
2. Type of fuel: Petrol, Diesel, Gas, Bio / Alternative Fuels.
3. Number of strokes – Two stroke Petrol, Two-Stroke Diesel, Four Stroke Petrol / Four Stroke Diesel.

## How many engine are there?

There are two types of engines, and they are: Internal combustion engines: When the combustion of fuel takes place inside the engine like in a car it is known as an internal combustion engine.

## How an engine works for dummies?

A V-shaped engine with eight cylinders = V8 — four in each cylinder bank. The combustion chamber in an engine is where the magic happens. It’s where fuel, air, pressure, and electricity come together to create the small explosion that moves the car’s pistons up and down, thus creating the power to move the vehicle.

## What is the most important part of an engine?

Flywheel is one of the most important engine components. It is a large and heavy metal wheel. Flywheel is attached to the back of the crankshaft to smooth out the firing impulses. It provides inertia to keep the crankshaft turning smoothly during the periods when no power is being applied.

## What happens if you hold the ignition too long?

You could possibly overheat the starter motor if you held the key for longer than a minute. Once the engine starts, the flywheel will now be driving the starter gear at a high rate of speed but the one-way clutch prevents the starter gear from spinning the starter motor and protects it from damage.

## Why does an engine start?

Your starter motor has two gears on it. When the electrical current reaches the motor, they mesh together as the motor spins the engine. As fuel and spark are introduced into the cylinders this is ignited, thus, the engine starts.

## What is cranking the engine?

In order to get an engine running, it first needs to be rotated at sufficient speed. Thus, it gets the fuel pumped up to the cylinders and ignited and enables the engine to run on its own power. Cranking the engine simply means turning the engine’s crankshaft that rotates the engine to power itself.

## What causes crank no start?

When your engine cranks but won’t start or run, it could mean your engine is having trouble producing a spark, getting fuel, or creating compression. The most common causes are problems in the ignition (for example, a bad ignition coil) or fuel system (for example, a clogged fuel filter).

## What causes slow engine start?

What’s wrong? A: Possible causes: a marginal battery, a poor connection in the starting circuit or starter, a charging-system problem, or the battery is being drained while the car’s parked. If the slow cranking occurs after driving (engine hot), it’s likely a faulty starter or poor charging.

## How do you diagnose hard start?

Part 1 of 3: Getting to know the starting system

1. Step 1: Insert your key.
2. Step 2: Starter pushes the flywheel or flexplate.
3. Step 3: The engine turns over.
4. Step 1: Start the car in Park.
5. Step 2: Check the battery.
6. Step 3: Check the starter.
7. Step 4: Check the spark.
8. Step 5: Check the fuel.
