Open vs. Locked Differential


When understanding open and locked differential, torque transfer is not entirely intuitive. I created this video to hopefully clear up some confusion on how torque transfer works in both open and locked differentials.

  1. This video is one way of advertising cars and their specific features and its advantage over others. It is possible for marketing people to create similar videos like this to simplify technical terms especially those who will buy cars in Long Island New York.

  2. Excuse me
    I found something confuse me and I would like to show my opinion.
    The max force(static friction force) created on pavement is 1000(lbf)(1000*1), and the one created on snow is 300(lbf)(1000*0.3), so the total torque is 1000+300=1300(lbf),according to the video. However, when the lock differential works, both tires rotate in the same speed. The max static friction force of the tire on pavement is larger than the one on snow, so the wheel on pavement may rotate and the other(on snow) may spin. Conclusively, the wheel on snow may create kinetic friction force, which may decrease the friction coefficient from 0.3 to 0.2. It is my calculation that the total torque will be 1000*1 + 100*0.2=1200.
    Please take a look at it and give me some instruction.
    Thanks a lot!!

  3. The use of the water in the water OMEGA has extraordinary charm. Launched in 1932, Omega Ocean series, called the first piece of replica watches diving in the world; dive to 300 meters water depth is still in working order mechanical diving table; table on a cosmic ocean, diving performance is more perfect, styles but also the significant marine, sport, fashion temperament. On the land of OMEGA, it is a time accurate and design excellence and known. Launched in 1994, the world the first piece of fake hublot watches Omega mid Tourbillon watches marked the birth of the first true mid Tourbillon. In order to complete in 16.8 mm narrow to display their skills, Omega mid Tourbillon bidirectional driving Tourbillon system design and production are by hand made. The world's track and field events, the Olympic Games and other sports events are quite popular with OMEGA's top of rolex replica the table. Aerospace OMEGA also dominate in the watch industry in.
