Textbook Problem

Technician A says that crankshaft counterweights offset the weight of the connecting rods and pistons. Technician B says that crankshaft counterweights are used to dampen crankshaft torsional vibrations. Who is correct?

  1. Technician A

  • Technician B
  • Both A and B
  • d. Neither A nor B

    To determine

    The technician with correct approach.

    Explanation

    Given Information:

    Technician A says that crankshaft counterweights offset the weight of the connecting rods and pistons. Technician B says that crankshaft counterweights are used to dampen crankshaft torsional vibrations.

    Counterweights are used of three reasons.

    1. For equilibrium of all forces.
    2. For equilibrium of all torque...
