1. What is Internal Combustion Engine?

Internal Combustion Engine is a type of an engine developed by engineers to maximize the efficiency of an engine after finding the disadvantages of external combustion engines.

Internal Combustion Engine is a type of an engine which uses a type of fuels to burn the air and and bring the air to a high temperature to make a high pressure inside a closed environment to force a pistons, turbine blades, rotor or a nozzle to move.

By using the internal combustion engine, the energy is used directly from the source to create a force which is required to do a particular task. Due to operating in a close environment, engineers gained the capability to control the points which could affect on the efficiency.
