Drive Mechanisms

Duration: 2 hours

Motors or engines are the core of any machine, taking a source of energy and converting it into movement. The movement created by an engine is typically a spinning shaft (or cylinder) which can then be connected to the machinery it drives either directly, with cogs, by gears or by drive belts. In this course, you will learn about different ways of converting the movement of energy in order to perform work tasks.
