Piston function, requirements, and types
In the cylinder of an engine, the energy bound up in the fuel is rapidly converted into heat and pressure during the combustion cycle. The heat and pressure values increase greatly within a very short period of time. The piston, as the moving part of the combustion chamber, has the task of converting this released energy into mechanical work.
