How do you believe Rudolf Diesel has influenced human's society
His invention of the Diesel engine, though it burns a less refined petroleum product, can still be more efficient than gas powered engines. Gas powered engines require a spark plug to ignite the gasoline. Diesel engines doesn't use a spark plug, it ignites the fuel by the having a higher compression ratio of air to fuel and this pressure alone ignites the fuel. This also means that less fuel is used per cycle if you compare by volume and it creates more torque. However, comparing to gasoline, it has less horsepower because of lower RPMs. RPMs is the multiplier used with torque to calculate horse-power. Diesel has lower RPMs because the piston must go farther in order to achieve a higher compression ratio.
This is why semi-trucks have diesel, they don't need RPMs, they need raw power. Its also common to see car enthusiasts have turbo-charged engines, higher compression ratio equals more power and when multiplied by the RPMs results in more horse-power. The reason why the compression ratio that Rudolf Diesel developed isn't used in cars as much is because gasoline would spontaneously ignite at the wrong time. This is why diesel is used, it has higher tolerance for compression than gasoline. If more effective compression technologies were available for gas, Rudolf's idea would be even more popular and less pollution.
damn reliable inventor of that paticular motor
