Small Engine Project

Small Engine exercise yesterday used precision measuring, math formulas, geometric shapes (volume), and scientific instruments
students used precision measuring tools to measure engine bore and stroke.
Then used these measurements to calculate engine size (displacement).
From there, they used the burette to measure internal engine volume, and then used that value (with the engine displacement) to calculate the mechanical compression ratio of the engine.
