Internal Combustion Engine Pollutants


Consider the internal combustion engine as a machine in which raw materials must be placed so that a finished product emerges. As in any machine operation, a certain amount of wasted material is formed. When we relate this to the internal combustion engine, we find that by putting in air and fuel, we obtain power (during the combustion process) to drive the vehicle. The by-product or waste of this power is heat and the exhaust gases (with which we must concern ourselves).
