## differential in Automotive Engineering

(dɪfərɛnʃəl)Wortformen:(regular plural) differentials

Substantiv

(Automotive engineering: Vehicle components, Engine, transmission, and exhaust)

A differential is a system of gears in a vehicle which allows two shafts to rotate at different speeds.

The five-speed manual transmission channels the power to a limited-slip differential. The differential enables the vehicle's rear wheels to revolve at different speeds in rounding corners. In a differential gear system, the two output axles are allowed to turn at different speeds.

(dɪfərɛnʃəl)Adjektiv

(Mechanical engineering: Control, instrumentation and metrology)

Differential control is where the strength of the output is adjusted according to the rate of approach to the setpoint.

The thermostat uses differential control which adjusts the rate of heating as the temperature approaches the setpoint. The differential controller requires that the temperature exceed setpoint by a certain amount before
the output will turn off or on again. Differential control is where the strength of the output is adjusted according to the rate of
approach to the setpoint.

Substantiv

(Mechanical engineering: Machinery and components)

A differential is a type of gear train (= a series of gears on a frame) that allows two shafts to rotate at different speeds while being driven by a third
shaft.

The differential allows the car's wheels to turn at different speeds. If a car did not have a differential, the wheels would have to be locked together, and would be forced to spin at the
same speed. A differential is a type of gear train that allows two shafts to rotate at different speeds while
being driven by a third shaft.
