How the combustion chamber works

When the piston is at the top dead center, the space formed above the top surface of the piston and below the bottom surface of the cylinder head is called the combustion chamber. In the bottom of the cylinder head of a gasoline engine, pits of various shapes are usually cast, and these pits are conventionally referred to as combustion chambers.

There are four conservation equations in combustion physics, namely total mass conservation, momentum conservation, energy conservation, and component conservation equations.
