THE FIREPISTON - Fire by compression

Air gets very hot when it is compressed under high pressure. A classic example would be the heat that is created when you use a bike pump, and the diesel engine. When the air is compressed in a firepiston it is done so quickly and efficiently that it can reach a temperature in excess of 800 degrees Fahrenheit. This is hot enough to ignite the tinder at the end of the piston.
