How it works?
A pneumatic motor or compressed air engine is a type of motor which does mechanical work by expanding compressed air. Pneumatic motors generally convert the compressed air energy to mechanical work through either linear or rotary motion. Linear motion can come from either a diaphragm or piston actuator, while rotary motion is supplied by either a vane type air motor or piston air motor.
The compressed air engine works like the normal car engine, the unique difference is that this one uses air and other gasoline. This means that our engine functions by pressure, the air enters through the first conduct, then it reaches the first room, while is in there, the air accumulates and it gets compressed, so searching for space. It pushes the piston in there. This movement liberates the air so another air charge can enter to do the same work.
We'll use a pneumatic cylinder to push the air through the conducts.
There is a lot of technologic progress in this topic, there have been created many prototypes of this engine, the majority using wood, but the biggest progress started in Europe when Tata (An ecologic car company) created the first air engine car.
