    EXTERNAL, you genius…

  2. IamSmarterThanEveryone says:

    That is not an INTERNAL combustion engine but an EXTERNAL. As you can see there is nothing energy providing INSIDE the combustion chamber… only the EXTERNAL candle.

    Actually, it’s a Stirling engine, not an internal combustion engine.

    If he added a hand- wound generator, I’ll bet he could output .95 candlepower with it. Fun thing to fool with after several beers with your buddies.

    No, it is internal combustion. The rubber foam on the inside is burning. ;)

    Nice model, but please DO listen to the comments correcting your title.
    This is NOT an internal combustion engine.
    It IS an external combustion engine.

    No one is criticizing your work, it is indeed a fine job. But the title needs to be corrected or it will confuse more people and students will give wrong answers in their class !!
