The Engine

Art-Impression or Educative Model – That’s the question

An engine is a mechanical device that produces some form of output from a given input. Sometimes it's called motor as in motorvehicle.
An engine whose purpose is to produce kinetic energy output from a fuel source is called a prime mover; alternatively, a motor is a device which produces kinetic energy from a preprocessed "fuel" (such as electricity, a flow of hydraulic fluid or compressed air).
