“What exactly causes the wheels to move in a car?”

 

Everyone knows that in order to move a car, you have to turn on the engine, which will cause the wheels to move, but have you ever wondered how an engine transmits power to the wheels? Well, let’s think about it. We know that an internal combustion engine or a motor will produce rotary kinetic energy. In addition, the position of this component in the car will be parallel but not contiguous with the wheels. So wouldn’t it be logical if we were to implement a shaft connecting the engine and wheels to facilitate the transfer of power and energy between these two components? This is the fundamental idea behind a drivetrain, and it is one of the most important parts of a car. The power transfer function of drivetrains allow them to enable the operation of regenerative braking technology. Drivetrains are considered to be so economically vital that the market for such items is expected to reach $314.4.00 USD by the year 2019!
