Principles of Electric Spark Ignition in Internal-combustion Engines

Nature volume 104, page 372 (11 December 1919) | Download Citation



IN the eighty or so pages of this little book Mr. Morgan gives the result of certain experiments by others and himself to determine the nature of electric spark ignition in internal-combustion engines. A wide circle of readers will feel grateful to the author for providing in this convenient form an account of the more important work along these lines, and for the reference which he provides to the sources from which information in fuller detail may be obtained. Mr. Morgan puts them still further in his debt by the lucidity with which he writes, and his manifest endeavour—almost always successful—to ensure that, even in the more intricate parts of the subject, his phraseology shall be free from the ambiguity which is so often the despair of readers of technical books.
