Abstract: This paper discusses the overlooked uncertainty inherent in every transmission. The uncertainty aspect has been often, for the sake of clarity, ignored. Instead, mechanical transmissions have been characterized traditionally by their transmission efficacies. It is known that transmission localities are sources of power loss, depending on many factors, hence sources of uncertainty. Thus each transmission of power should not only be designated by a constant of efficiency but also by an expression of uncertainty, reflecting the probability of transmission. Furthermore, Shannon's and Renyi's expressions of entropy have been used to quantify this so-called transmission uncertainty. The entropy of a transmitting unit is given in these two forms and then compared. Practical formulations for flow optimization are given.
