1) Torque converter impeller
2) Blades and fluid of impeller
3) Centrifugal forces caused by rotation of impeller
4) Torque converter turbine
5) Fluid flow between impeller and turbine
6) Fluid coupling
7) Torque converter stator
8) Housing, lock-up clutch and shaft
9) Stages of operation: stall, acceleration, coupling
