I set out to find out how many seconds it takes for a 4cylinder naturally aspirated diesel engine to complete 1 cycle(4 strokes):(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I considered a tata indica model

max power:53.5PS@5000rpm

therefore 5000 rev per min or 83.3 rev per sec

now it takes 0.012 seconds to complete 4 strokes or 1 cycle and 6x10^-3 seconds for 2 strokes

Now I want to find how much time does the intake valve remain open.
