Question about 1992 Honda Accord
I have opel corsa 2001.A car that has 1100 cc ,75-80nm torque moves swifttly than a car of 1400cc and 89nm. Why is that?
Hi, the weight of the cars, the gear ratios, engine and drive train condition would all be factors--
the weight could make a big difference, to exaggerate an example of each, a car with more torque and a bigger engine (more horsepower for this example) that weighs twice as much as another car will not win a race because it needs a lot more power to move the extra weight. Obviously, a car with an engine and transmission in poor condition, but a higher horsepower and torque rating probably will not win a race with a car of less horsepower and torque in excellent running condition. Gear ratios, consider 2 people in a bicycle race, one incredibly strong, the other not a very good athlete. The strong biker has a bike with low gears, it will only go so fast in the highest gear when he's pedaling as fast as he can. The weaker biker has the bike with the an excellent range in gears, allowing him to pedal easily up hills, and with fewer revolutions on flat roads and down hills, so even though he has less power than the other rider, his power is used to the best efficiency .
Another point to make, would be that engine size alone means nothing, a huge engine can have less horsepower than a smaller one. countrycurt0
