Top 5 Fastest Fighter Jets In The World

Fighter jets are the military aircrafts designed primarily for air-to-air combat against other aircrafts. The main specialty of fighter aircraft is its fast speed, maneuverability and small size as compared to other combat aircrafts. Many fighter jets are designed for dual purpose; they can attack both in air and on ground. I have collected a list of top 5 fastest fighter jets in the world which I am sharing in this article.

Types of Automobiles

In our day to day life we come across different types of automobiles but we exactly don't know how many types of automobiles are present in the world. In this article I am going to tell you about their types.

Types of Automobiles

The different types of automobiles are classified on the following basis:

Types of Automobiles


Purpose 

    According to the purpose the vehicles are classified as passenger vehicles and goods vehicles. The vehicles which carries passengers are called as passenger vehicles and those carries materials or goods are called as goods vehicles. Some of the examples of these vehicles are given below.

1. Passenger vehicles: Car, Bus, Jeep, Auto-rickshaw.
2. Goods vehicles: Truck.

Capacity

According to the capacity the vehicles are classified as light motor vehicles and heavy motor vehicles. The light motor vehicles can able to carry light things and are also less in size and weight. But the heavy motor vehicles can carry very heavy materials and possess large mass and are bigger in size.

1. Light motor vehicles: Motorcycle, Car,  Scooter.
2. Heavy motor vehicles: Bus, Tractor, Truck.

Fuel used

On the basis of the fuel used the vehicles can be divided into petrol vehicles, diesel vehicles, electric cab, steam carriages and gas vehicles.

1. Petrol vehicles: Car, Motorcycle, Jeep, Scooter.
2. Diesel vehicles: Truck, Bus, Tractor, Car.
3. Electric cab: Fork lift, Battery truck.
4. Steam carriages: Steam road roller.
5. Gas vehicles: CNG vehicles.

Number of wheels

According to the number of wheels the vehicles are classified as two, three, four, six and eight or more wheelers.

1. Two -wheeler: Motorcycles, Scooter, Moped.
2. Three -wheeler:Tempo, Road roller.
3. Four -wheeler: Car, Bus, Jeep, Tractor.
4. Six- wheeler: Truck, Bus, Gun carriage vehicle.
5. Eight- or more wheelers: Car transporting vehicle, Rocket transporter.

According to the type of drive the vehicles are classified as single-wheel, two-wheel, four-wheel and six-wheel drive vehicle.

1. Single-wheel drive vehicle.
2. Two-wheel drive vehicle.
3. Four- wheel drive vehicle.
4. Six-wheel drive vehicle.

What is Density, Specific Weight, Specific Volume and Specific Gravity?


What is Density, Specific Weight, Specific Volume and Specific Gravity


What is Inside?

  • Density or mass density,
  • Specific weight,
  • Specific volume and
  • Specific gravity

Density or Mass Density: 

Density (mass density) of a fluid is defined as the ratio of mass of a fluid to the volume of the fluid. In other words it is defined as the mass per unit volume of a fluid.


Mass density (density) = mass/volume
ρ = m/V

Specific Weight:

Specific weight of a fluid is defined as the ratio of the weight of a fluid to the volume of the fluid. Or weight of a fluid per unit volume is called its specific weight.


Specific weight = (weight of fluid)/(volume of fluid)
w = mg/V = ρg

Specific Volume:

Specific volume of a fluid is defined as the ratio of the volume of a fluid to the mass of the fluid. In other words it may also be defined as volume per unit mass of a fluid.


Specific volume = (volume of fluid)/(mass of fluid)
specific volume = V/m  = 1/ρ

Specific Gravity:

Specific gravity is defined as the ratio of the density of a fluid to the density of a standard fluid. For liquids, water is taken as the standard fluid where as for gases air is taken as the standard fluid. It is denoted by the symbol S.


specific gravity, S = (density of liquid)/(density of water) 
                   = (density of gas )/(density of air)
  • The density of water is taken as 1000 kg/ cubic metre


Internal Combustion Engine Parts And Metals From Which it is manufactured.

A metal decide the performance and limit of a machine. We are often interested in finding which metal is used in manufacturing of an IC engine and why. In manufacturing of an engine we have to use those metals which can handle the pressure and temperature of the engine and should be cheap in price. Today I am going to tell you about the metals which is used in IC engine and there method of manufacturing.

Cylinder block:

Cylinder is made by high grade cast iron because it is in direct contact of combustion gases. Cast iron has high compressive strength to handle the pressure and temperature. It is made by casting and usually cast in one piece.


Cylinder head:


The main function of cylinder head is to seal the cylinder and it should be light in weight. So cylinder head is usually made by cast iron or aluminum. It is made by casting or forging and usually in one piece.



Piston:

Piston is prime mover in engine so it should be light. It is in direct contact with combustion temperature and pressure so it should has high strength to handle this pressure. So generally piston is made by cast iron but sometime it is made by aluminum alloy. Usually it is made by casting.




 Piston ring:

Piston ring is usually made by fine grain of cast iron which has high elasticity and it is not affected by the working pressure. Sometime piston rings are made by alloy spring steel. It is made by forging.


Connecting rod:

Connecting rod transmits the power to crankshaft. It should have high strength. So it is made by alloy steel but in small engine it is made by aluminum to achieve lighter weight. It is made by forging.



Inlet valve and Exhaust valve:

Inlet valve admits the air and fuel into the cylinder. It is usually made by silicon chrome steel with about 3% carbon. It is made by forging.
Exhaust valve discharge the exhaust gases. It is made by austenitic steal. It is also made by forging.


Crankshaft:

Crankshaft converts the reciprocating motion of piston into rotary motion. It should have high tensile strength. So the crankshaft made by high tensile steel or sometime by cast iron. It is usually made by forging.

Piston Pin:

Piston pin is made by hardened steel so it can support and allow to connecting rod to swivel. It is usually made by forging.


Engine bearing:

Engine bearing should have lubricant property and strength to withstand in moving load. So its half is made of steel or bronze back to which a lining of relatively soft bearing material is applied.
