Porsche I have narrowed down my project to just Porsche vehicles. I am not going to talk about the man behind the car to much. I have found several web sites that have criteria about Porsche and their different models and their performance. I will discuss these subjects along with others. The history of Porsche will be discussed. I will also talk about some different models such as the 911 GT3. I will also discuss the GT1 and GT3 race seriesI will also discuss Porches latest press releases. His

Larry Bird One of the greatest basketball players of all time emerged from the small town of French Lick, Indiana. With a population of 2,059 people, around 1,600 of them came to watch the Valley High basketball games, especially the blond-haired shooting whiz with a funny smile named Larry Joe Bird. Following a sophomore season that was shortened by a broken ankle, Bird erupted as a junior. Springs Valley went 19-2 and young Larry became a local celebrity. Generous fans always seemed to be will

INTERNAL-COMBUSTION ENGINE INTRODUCTION Internal Combustion Engine, a heat engine in which the fuel is burned ( that is, united with oxygen ) within the confining space of the engine itself. This burning process releases large amounts of energy, which are transformed into work through the mechanism of the engine. This type of engine different from the steam engine, which process with an external combustion engine that fuel burned apart from the engine. The principal types of internal combustion

The Four-Stroke Cycle
The Four-Stroke Cycle What really makes a car go? There are many parts to an engine that are visible, like an alternator, starter, hoses, wires and a bunch of other things. But what is in the inside and how does it work? The process is really just a mixture of parts, moving in sync in a distinct pattern called the four-stoke cycle. To understand the components of a four-stroke engine better, a little background information may be needed. In a gasoline engine, exhaust and intake manifolds (tunn

The wave of the future is drowning out very quickly. All the technology we have created will bit the dust before the systems really are used. At the end of the century all systems that have calendars to monitor systems or use calendars to show dates will shut down all at once. Major electronic systems such as elevators, alarm systems, fax machines, telephones, cars with computer systems will be nothing more than paper weights or wall designs nothing more.

Aluminum
Aluminum Aluminum is the most abundant metal in the earth's crust. Aluminum is a lightweight, silvery looking metal. The atomic weight of aluminum is 26.9815. Aluminum melts at 660° C and it boils at 2467° C. When aluminum comes in contact with the air it becomes covered with a tough, clear layer of aluminum oxide that protects it. This is why aluminum is resistant to rust and corrosion. Aluminum is never found all by itself. It is found as aluminum silicate or as a silicate of aluminum mixed w

Internal Combustion Engines An internal-combustion engine is a heat engine that burns fuel and air inside a combustion chamber located within the engine proper. Simply stated, a heat engine is an engine that converts heat energy to mechanical energy. The internal- combustion engine should be distinguished from the external- combustion engine, for example, the steam engine and the Stirling engine, which burns fuel outside the prime mover, that is, the device that actually produces mechanical moti

Brownian Motion
Brownian Motion Brownian motion was first observed by Dr Robert Brown in 1827, using pollen grains. It was not explained correctly until much later. Albert Einstein set about explaining Brownian motion in 1905. Dr Robert Brown was a biologist and was studying pollen grains under a microscope. He noticed that the tiny grains were constantly moving and jigging around. He explained this by saying that, since pollen grains are from plants and plants are alive, then these grains must also be alive an

The difference between thermal energy and heat is that thermal energy is the potential and kinetic energy of the particles and heat is the thermal energy in motion. 2. Heat and temperature differ because the temperature is the measure of its ability heat, while heat is not a measurement but is a term used when thermal energy is in motion. 3. The melting point of ice and the boiling point of water were the fixed points because the

Air pollution from automobiles is a major environmental and health pro
Air pollution from automobiles is a major environmental and health problem in many cities across the United States and around the world. Air pollution comes from the comes from the combustion process that leave the engine through the exhaust system and the crankcase. In engines using unleaded gasoline, the compounds in the exhaust are typically hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and oxides of nitrogen in diesel engines. The exhaust includes particulates that are related to smoke, and in engines usi

In engineering and more specifically thermodynamics there are a number of significant devices. This paper will discuss two of these devices: turbines and compressors. These two devices are related in the fact that they have opposing functions. A compressor uses energy to increase the pressure of a gas, whereas a turbine uses a fluid to produce energy. Also, in this paper a particular type of turbine, the steam turbine, will be discussed in-depth. Compressors As mentioned before, the main functi

Leonardo Da Vinci in the 1400's designed one that worked, at least on paper, and Queen Elizabeth I reputably had one in her palace in Richmond in 1556, complete with flushing and overflow pipes, a bowl valve and a drain trap.

Metallic Hydrogen Hydrogen: the most abundant element in the universe. Normally it has been considered to remain a non-metal at any range of temperatures and pressures. That is, until now. Recently this year, hydrogen was changed into a metallic substance, which could conduct electricity. An experiment conducted by William J. Nellis et al. at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory accomplished this feat. Hydrogen was converted from a non-metallic liquid, into a liquid metal. The likelihood t

The Evolution of Jet Engines
The Evolution of Jet Engines The jet engine is a complex propulsion device which draws in air by means of an intake, compresses it, heats it by means of an internal combustion engine, which when expelled it turns a turbine to produce thrust, resulting in a force sufficient enough to propell the aircraft in the opposite direction (Morgan 67). When the jet engine was thought of back in the 1920's the world never thought it would become a reality, but by 1941 the first successful jet flight was flo

Ignition system From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The ignition system of an internal-combustion engine is an important part of the overall engine system. It provides for the timely burning of the fuel mixture within the engine. Not all engine types need an ignition system - for example, a diesel engine relies on compression-ignition, that is, the rise in temperature that accompanies the rise in pressure within the cylinder is sufficient to ignite the fuel spontaneously.
