What Is the Function of a Crankshaft in an Engine?

Answer

The function of a crankshaft in an engine is to transform the linear motion inside the pistons into rotational motion, which is transmitted to the wheels. The crankshaft has crankpins and crank throws that aid in the conversion of the reciprocating motion into a rotational force. Crankshafts are usually made of forged steel.
