NEWTON'S FIRST LAW OF MOTION, GENERALLY TERMED THE LAW OF INERTIA, STATES: to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction force is proportional to the product of mass and acceleration every body persists in its state of rest, or of motion in a straight line, unless acted upon by some outside force.
WHEN WILL THE VOLTAGE IN THE SECONDARY WINDING OF A MAGNETO, INSTALLED ON A NORMALLY OPERATING ENGINE, BE AT ITS HIGHEST VALUE? toward the latter part of the spark duration when the flame front reaches its maximum velocity just prior to spark plug firing immediately after the breaker points close.
IF AN ENGINE WITH A STROKE OF 6 INCHES IS OPERATED AT 2.000 RPM THE PISTON MOVEMENT WITHIN THE CYLINDER WILL BE: constant during the entire 360° of crankshaft travel at maximum velocity around TDC at maximum velocity 90° after TDC.
