Hi guys(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I read somewhere that "the actual torque transmitted from the engine to the clutch is the total engine torque subtacted by the amount of torque required to accelerate the inertia of rotating components of engine.i.e:"

T(c) = T(e) - [ I(e) x [tex]\alpha[/tex](e) ]

where T(c)=Torque at clutch

I(e)= inertia of rotating engine parts

[tex]\alpha[/tex](e)=angular acceleration of rotating engine parts

Can you explain this?

I mean, I(e) x alpha(e) is the amount of torque produced by engine, then why it is subtracted as inertial loss.
