Small Gasoline Engine –Internal Combustion

Small Gasoline Engine –Internal Combustion Air/fuel mixture is ignited inside the engine

Small Gasoline Engine –Internal Combustion Air/fuel mixture is ignited inside the engine The gasses (when ignited ) expand in all directions

Small Gasoline Engine –Internal Combustion Air/fuel mixture is ignited inside the engine The gasses (when ignited ) expand in all directions Only the piston is allowed to move

Small Gasoline Engine –Internal Combustion Air/fuel mixture is ignited inside the engine The gasses (when ignited ) expand in all directions Only the piston is allowed to move –Inertia

Small Gasoline Engine –Internal Combustion Air/fuel mixture is ignited inside the engine The gasses (when ignited ) expand in all directions Only the piston is allowed to move –Inertia A physical law that states an object in motion will continue in motion or an object at rest will continue at rest unless an additional force is applied.

Small Gasoline Engine –Internal Combustion Air/fuel mixture is ignited inside the engine The gasses (when ignited ) expand in all directions Only the piston is allowed to move –Inertia A physical law that states an object in motion will continue in motion or an object at rest will continue at rest unless an additional force is applied. –The piston reaches TDC then reverses direction, repeating the process at BDC. This places extreme stress on the engine by changing the inertia

Performance Defined as the work engines do

Performance Defined as the work engines do also, Defined as how well they do the work

Bore The diameter or width across the top of the cylinder –Measured using caliper or telescoping gauges and micrometers

Stroke The up or down movement of the piston. –Measured from TDC to BDC. –Determined by the amount of offset on the crankshaft.
