Watch internal combustion in 4K slow motion

Date:17 January 2017 Tags:, ,

With a glass head mounted on a Briggs and Stratton engine, YouTube channel Warped Perception captures incredible slow motion footage of the internal combustion process.

In the video you’ll see four sections that make up this four-stroke piston engine. The large moving cylinder on the left side is the piston, and on the right you’ll see the intake and exhaust valves. Slightly further to the right between these valves you’ll see the spark plug that ignites the fuel.

The combustion process is repeated using petrol, isopropyl alcohol and highly explosive acetylene. Check out the video above to see the combustion engine in processes and to see how the cycles vary depending on the fuel used.
