Cylinder
The cylinder of a motor is the enclosure by which a piston moves. The power of an engine is determined by the number of cylinders and their volume. The cylinder of a motor is the enclosure by which a piston moves. The power of an engine is determined by the number of cylinders and their volume.
Cylinder head
The cylinder head serves as a sealed cap for the cylinders. It houses all or part of the combustion chamber, except in the case that it is formed in the head of the piston.
