How Do Pistons Work?

Answer

A piston is a part of a internal combustion engine. The piston goes up and down in a cylinder. When it is up gas is injected and ignited by the spark plug. That explodes and pushes the piston down. The piston is connected to a connecting rod and crankshaft in a way that as it goes down it turns the shaft. The same thing happens to the other pistons in a very quick and repeated process.
