Power Available of Internal Combustion IC Engine In order to calculate the Power Available of Internal Combustion IC Engines we need to know certain parameters. 

These parameters are, Number of Cylinders of IC Engine IC Engine Stroke in cm. IC Engine bore in cm Compression Ratio of IC Engine
Pressure in Intake Manifold of IC Engine in atm The temperature in the intake manifold of the IC Engine in Kelvin K.
The value of fueltoair ratio mixture by mass. The Chemical energy released when 1kg of gasoline or fuel is burnt.
The Mechanical Efficiency of IC Engine The Efficiency by which the Crankshaft is connected to the propeller of the Airplane The rpm of IC Engine The value of the Air constant , gamma = 1.4
The value of Cp = 1008 J/kg.K and the value of R = 287 J/kg.K
Performing the calculation and using the ideal cycle of IC Engine, the first law of thermodynamics, equation of continuity, compression and power stroke cycle The Net work per cycle of IC Engine is calculated equal to W = Wpower  Wcompression
Finally, the Total Power Available from the Engine propeller combination is calculated.
