    Ignition Systems: New and Old Jeff Tuttle Period 3 9/9/04 Ignitions systems in motor vehicles have evolved in the past thirty years. Points was a simple concept but was not reliable and needed adjustment and replacement of components seemed constant. Today a magnetic sensor relays a signal to the computer which in turn sends the voltage to the selected cylinder to ignite the fuel/air mixture. There are not mechanical parts to fail or become corroded and brittle. There are many different

    today. Microprocessors can be found in many household items including refrigerators, televisions, gaming systems, washer/dryers, and many other items. More importantly, the introduction of the microprocessor and microcontroller to the automobile was a breakthrough in vehicle safety and engine efficiency. With the use of these mini-computers we now have safety features like anti-lock brake systems and more precise airbags. Also with the help of microprocessors cars are getting much better gas mileage

    power, exhaust stroke and ignition event. During the intake stroke, the piston descends from top dead center (TDC) with the exhaust valve closed and the intake valve open to the bottom dead center (BDC) of the cylinder. As the piston descends, a mixture of air and fuel from the carburetor is drawn into the cylinder. After the intake valve closed, the piston moves back toward TDC of the cylinder compressing the fuel-air mixture. Just before the piston is close to TDC, ignition takes place by a spark

    B. Main Body A breathalyzer ignition interlock device which is an electronic device that is used to measure and test the blood alcohol content in a person’s blood stream before allowing for a vehicle’s ignition system to be started up. Essentially it is a device that is installed in a vehicle's dashboard and before the vehicle can be started up, the driver must breathe into the device. If the analysed result is over a programmed predetermined blood alcohol concentration that has been preset into

    brakes, (Coates Del, Brake System 1). Drum brakes would mostly heat up when traveling down hill, as one would have to apply the brake often and there being no ventilation it was a accident waiting to happen. Most drum brakes where mechanically actuated (Coates, Brake systems 2). This means that the brakes where actuated by a cable and caused them to lock up very easily. The hydraulic brake was introduced in the 1950's (Coates Brakes Systems 3). This new braking system used fluid to apply pressure

    change goals for the future of space exploration. A manned mission to Pluto might go from a distant dream to a top priority, but the challenges of such a journey are immense. The spacecraft must be able to travel to the outer reaches of the solar system safely and swiftly - and life support must be able to keep the crew alive and well, both in transit and once they reach the planet. My story follows a manned mission to Pluto with a crew of 4 astronauts, and covers the technology needed to overcome

    grand theory called the Conceptual System, also created by King (Frey et al: 2002). To understand the more focused mid-range theory it is important to first quickly understand the conceptual system. The conceptual system was created using systems analysis and systems theory literature (Johnson and Webber, 2010). It was originally referred to as a conceptual framework, but King changed the terminology in 1997 to Conceptual System (Frey et al, 2002). The conceptual system focused on decision making in nursing
