# Flat engine and Four-stroke engine

## Difference between Flat engine and Four-stroke engine

### Flat engine vs. Four-stroke engine

A flat engine is an internal combustion engine with horizontally-opposed cylinders. A four-stroke (also four-cycle) engine is an internal combustion (IC) engine in which the piston completes four separate strokes while turning the crankshaft.

## Similarities between Flat engine and Four-stroke engine

Flat engine and Four-stroke engine have 6 things in common (in Unionpedia): Crankshaft, Dead centre (engineering), History of the internal combustion engine, Internal combustion engine, Karl Benz, Two-stroke engine.

### Crankshaft

A crankshaft&mdash;related to crank&mdash;is a mechanical part able to perform a conversion between reciprocating motion and rotational motion.

In a reciprocating engine, the dead centre is the position of a piston in which it is farthest from, or nearest to, the crankshaft.

### History of the internal combustion engine

Various scientists and engineers contributed to the development of internal combustion engines.

### Internal combustion engine

An internal combustion engine (ICE) is a heat engine where the combustion of a fuel occurs with an oxidizer (usually air) in a combustion chamber that is an integral part of the working fluid flow circuit.

### Karl Benz

Karl Friedrich Benz (25 November 1844 – 4 April 1929) was a German engine designer and automobile engineer.

### Two-stroke engine

A two-stroke (or two-cycle) engine is a type of internal combustion engine which completes a power cycle with two strokes (up and down movements) of the piston during only one crankshaft revolution.

### The list above answers the following questions

• What Flat engine and Four-stroke engine have in common
• What are the similarities between Flat engine and Four-stroke engine

## Flat engine and Four-stroke engine Comparison

Flat engine has 157 relations, while Four-stroke engine has 77. As they have in common 6, the Jaccard index is 2.56% = 6 / (157 + 77).
