Can a Combustion Engine Work in Vacuum?
00
A combustion engine can work in a vacuum, providing an oxidizer. Without an oxidizer, the engine would be unable to run. In such a situation, a direct

What is the Maximum Efficiency of a Combustion Engine?
00
Internal combustion engines, or ICEs, convert fuel into energy through a process known as combustion. This process is measured by the thermal efficiency
Engine power
How Much Energy is Lost in an Internal Combustion Engine?
00
Almost half of the power produced by gasoline engines is lost to waste heat. This heat is lost in two ways: through exhaust gases, which carry half of
Engine volume
Why Don’t We Use the External Combustion Engine in Cars?
00
Most cars today run on internal combustion engines, which heat and cool the engine from the inside. On the other hand, the external combustion engine heats

How Does an Internal Combustion Engine Not Explode?
00
Explanation of thermal explosion theory The thermal explosion theory of the internal combustion engine describes a transition from combustion to the explosion.

Is an Internal Combustion Engine a Heat Engine?
00
There are two types of engines: internal combustion engines and heat engines. A heat engine converts mechanical energy into thermal energy through the
Engine volume
How Complex is the Internal Combustion Engine?
00
In theory, the combustion of fuels in an internal combustion engine is a simple process. In reality, it is incredibly complicated. The simplest explosion

Internal Combustion Engine Parts
00
An internal combustion engine has several parts that work together to provide energy to the car’s wheels. These parts are the spark plug, the crankshaft
Engine volume
How Does Combustion Work in an Internal Combustion Engine?
00
Combustion is a process that turns energy from one form to another. An internal combustion engine achieves this process using a series of thermodynamic events.
Engine power
What Happens in an Internal Combustion Engine?
00
When a car engine starts, it uses a mixture of air and fuel to create power. A spark ignites the fuel/air mixture in the combustion chamber.
