This is a cool example of how a rotary engine works. I saw one of my friends had it posted on facebook so I thought I’d show it here. Two things I don’t understand as of now: 1. lubrication to the apex seals? 2. Why does the combustion want to turn the rotor? I see no reason for it to turn when combustion occurs. I will find out the answers and post them.
