The crank and connecting rod of vertical single cylinder gas engine running at 1800 rpm are 60 mm and 240 mm resp. The distance of the piston is 80 mm, and mass of reciprocating part is 1.2 kg. At a point during power stroke when piston has moved 20 mm from top dead center position, the pressure on the piston is $800 kN/m^2$. Determine
- Net force on the piston
- Net load on gudgeon pin.
- the thrust on cylinder walls
- the speed at which the gudgeon pin load is reverse in direction.
