Question: kinematics and dynamics consider an auto engine weighing 400...

Question details

Kinematics and dynamics - consider an auto engine weighing 400 lbs (1780 N) with 500 N-m of torque supported by two motor mounts with a shear attachment. Provide URLs for any assumptions (not necessary, but beneficial) 1. What is the shear force on each of two motor mounts separated by 0.5m (through the engine center of rotation: -0.25m)? Enpine Shear attachment (2places) Estimate the shear stress for motor mounts with 25 cm2 of attachment surface. Is steel required? What material(s) might be better regarding isolating engine vibration, and could it survive the stress? What is the effect of doubling the torque (for double acceleration) on other systems (power and structure)? Provide quantitative examples of each.
