Spark Plugs Information
Spark plugs are used in engine cylinders to ignite the fuel in an internal combustion engine while withstanding high pressures and temperatures.
Spark plugs are the component of an internal combustion engine that provided the energy required to ignite the air fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. Spark plugs use high voltage to jump a spark between 2 electrodes that have a gap between them.
There are many things that differ between different kinds of plugs. One is the gap between the electrodes. Also, different plugs have different heat ranges which will be needed based on the air fuel ratio and compression of the engine.
The electrode material will differ on different plugs, the most common materials are copper, platinum, and iridium.
