Engine distance in nautical mile = (Pitch x revolutions per day) Obtaining the accuracy of value in all the above calculations are always challenging onboard as the parameters recorded are more sensitive to dynamic conditions of the ship and also depends on various environmental factors.

## How is engine distance calculated?

Engine distance = **Pitch X RPM X 60 X 24 / 1852**.

## How do you fix engine speed?

**Calculating Slip Of The Propeller**

- We have to calculate for the speed of the engine. This is the formula for the engine speed: Engine speed = RPM x P x 60. …
- Solving for the Observed Speed. But we have to solve first for the steaming time. …
- We can now solve for the slip of the propeller. This the formula for the slip.

## What is true slip?

Real slip or true slip

This is **the difference between the theoretical speed and the speed of advance**, express as a ratio or percentage of the theoretical speed. The real slip is always positive and it dependant of current.

## What is engine speed?

Engine “Revs” are a measure of the engines speed. Engines are rotating machines and the speed is measured in revolutions per minute – that is how many full turns the engine does every minute. … 1500 Revolutions per minute (RPM) or 3000 (RPM) revolutions per minute for 50Hz generator and 1800 RPM or **3600RPM for 60hz**.

## Which engine works at higher speed?

– High-speed **diesel engine** – Trunk piston type engine having a rated speed of 1400 rpm or above. – Medium-speed diesel engine – Trunk piston type engine with speed range from 400 rpm to 1200 rpm.

## Which engine gives maximum speed?

Gasoline automobile engines typically will have a redline at around 5500 to 7000 rpm. The **Gordon Murray Automotive T.** **50** has the highest redline of a piston-engine road car rated at 12,100 rpm. The Renesis in the Mazda RX-8 has the highest redline of a production rotary-engine road car rated at 9000 rpm.

## What controls the speed of a petrol engine?

The engine RPM is monitored by the crankshaft position sensor which plays a primary role in the engine timing functions for fuel injection, spark events, and valve timing. Idle speed is controlled by **a programmable throttle stop** or an idle air bypass control stepper motor.

## What is the formula for fuel consumption?

The following formula is used to calculate fuel consumption in litres / 100kms, the most commonly used measure of fuel consumption. **(Litres used X 100) ÷ km travelled = Litres per 100km.**

## What is the formula to calculate fuel consumption?

Calculating consumption and range

Simply note down the distance travelled since the last top-up and then take a note of how much fuel it consumed to travel that distance, then **divide the litres used by the kilometres travelled and multiply by 100** to calculate consumption in litres/100km.

## How are bunker prices calculated?

The BAF is calculated **by multiplying the so-called ‘trade factor’ by the fuel price**. The fuel price will be the same for all trades and is calculated as the average bunker price in key supply ports around the world over a period said to be “typically” three months.
