Top Dead Center TDC
The Total distance that the piston moves from the top of the cylinder to the bottom Stroke
Circular piece of metal that's split at one point Piston Ring
Stage 1 of Engine: air that has been mixed with fuel is drawn into the cylinder Intake
Stage 2 of Engine: piston rises and compresses the air-and-fuel mixture thats trapped in the combustion chamber Compression
Stage 3 of Engine: air-and-fuel mixture is ignited by a spark and the contained explosion of the fuel presses the piston back down in the cylinder. The downward motion of the piston is transferred to the rod and crankshaft. Power
Stage 4 of Engine: The burned exhaust gases are released from the cylinder Exhaust
The piston takes only two strokes to complete one full engine cycle of intake, compression, power, and exhaust Two-stroke Engine
The piston requires four strokes to complete one full engine cycle Four-stroke Engine
The Total distance that the piston moves from the top of the cylinder to the bottom of the cylinder Piston Stroke
The Process of burning the air-and-fuel mixture in the cylinder Combustion
Bottom of the cylinder BDC
Top of the cylinder TDC
Is the volume of space that the piston must travel from the very bottom of its path to the very top of its path Engine Displacement
