Textbook Problem

Which of the following is not characteristic of a supercharger?

a. It is used to increase engine power by compressing the air that goes into the combustion chambers.

b. It usually is located close to the exhaust manifold.

c. It utilizes a belt-driven pulley.

d. It requires a mechanical connection between the engine and the pressurizing pump to compress the intake gases.

To determine

The statement that is not a characteristic of a supercharger.

Explanation

The function of the superchargers is to increase the pressure and density of air into the intake manifold thus providing better torque. These air pumps are driven directly by the engine’s crankshaft with the help of a V-belt. The drive belt connects the engine to the pulley connect to the rotor shaft...
