INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES Basics

Combustion engines
Chemical energy in fuel converted to thermal energy by combustion or oxidation Heat engine converts chemical energy into mechanical energy Thermal energy raises temperature and pressure of gases within engine, and gas expands against mechanical mechanisms of engine Combustion Internal: fuel is burned within the engine proper (including e.g. rocket engines, jet Engines, firearms) External: combustion is external to the engine (e.g. steam, Stirling engine, gas turbine)
