    What kind of engine vibration does not persist, but comes and goes?

    • A.

      Forced

    • B.

      Transient

    • C.

      Resonance

    • D.

      Externally excited

    Correct Answer
    B. Transient
    Explanation
    Transient engine vibration refers to vibrations that occur intermittently and do not persist continuously. These vibrations come and go, often caused by temporary disturbances or changes in engine conditions. Unlike forced vibrations, which are continuous and caused by a constant external force, transient vibrations are more unpredictable and can vary in intensity and duration. Resonance vibrations, on the other hand, occur when the engine's natural frequency matches an external force frequency, leading to sustained vibrations. Therefore, the correct answer is transient.
