Spark plug

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A spark plug also known as a "sparking plug", is a device used in delivering the electric current to the air-fuel mixture in the combustion chamber in an internal combustion engine. It’s connected to the ignition coil and as the electricity flows through the coil, a voltage difference develops between the electrodes on the spark plug. This causes electricity to jump the gap, making a spark which ignites fuel.
