How a Car Differential Works? Animation


Car differential is a clever piece of engineering. With the help of the differential, a car is able to turn easily.

The car differential has three functions

  1. Transfer power from engine to wheels
  2. Acts as a reducing gear i.e. reduces speed of the transmission one final time.
  3. To transfer power to wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds.

The animation below explains how car differential works.
