Flywheel is a rotating mechanical device that is used to store
Flywheels are typically made of steel and rotate on conventional
bearings; these are generally limited to a revolution rate of a
few thousand RPM. Some modern flywheels are made of carbon
fiber materials and employ magnetic bearings, enabling them to
revolve at speeds up to 60,000 RPM
How The Flywheel Works
The flywheel connect the rotation from engine to
clutch plate to the transmision.
Flywheel also make the crankshaft become move in a
motion to make the engine work from the starter
Where is the position of flywheel in
The flywheel’s position is between the engine and
clutch patch to the starter.
When it used ??
The flywheel is used when before the engine on if
we start the starter.
Also the flywheel used to forward the rotation
from crankshaft to clutch.
Who found the flywheel ?
The principle of the flywheel is found in the Neolithic spindle and the
In the Industrial Revolution, James Watt contributed to the
development of the flywheel in the steam engine, and his
contemporary James Pickard used a flywheel combined with a crank
to transform reciprocating into rotary motion.
