i) Indicated power
ii) Brake power
iii) Volumetric efficiency
iv) BSFC


(i) Indicated Power: The total power developed by combustion of fuel in the combustion chamber is called indicated power.

(ii) Brake Power: The power developed by an engine at the output shaft is called brake power.

(iii) Volumetric efficiency: It is defined as the ratio of the actual volume of the charge admitted into the cylinder to the swept volume of the piston is known as volumetric efficiency.

( iv) Brake specific fuel consumption: It is the mass of fuel consumed per kw developed per hour, and is a criterion of economical
