- TL;DR Summary
- crank slider mechanism.
I need help understanding what happens to the gas that is being worked by the piston, in the crank slider. My goal is to produce linear motion on an object up to a certain height and I'm wondering since the slider moves back during the rotation of the crank what happens to the object I'm trying to push and gas inside the piston. Most of the help online-only deals on force analysis of the crank and the slider. Any help or reference text on this topic would help. suppose end EG wasn't closed and there was an object there.
