When an electromagnet is employed in this way, it is fixed. No parts of the electromagnet itself are moving. It is instead used to make something else move, in this case, to pull the switch contacts together.

Group A, remember swept volume and clearance volume.

Flow path efficiency from air intake to exhaust tail pipe is critical for the performance of internal combustion spark ignition engines. It's relatively easy to improve the flow efficiency of intake and exhaust systems but what abut the component in between? The cylinder head can be a major obstacle to maximising engine performance so is worthy of attention. We've been modifying and testing cylinder heads for 30 years and have a good understanding of the science involved, so please let us know if you have any projects that have a requirement for cylinder head flow path optimisation.
