Does internal combustion engines burn fuel outside the engine?
No the fuel is burnt inside the engine, hence the term "internal combustion"
Reciprocating engines (piston engines) are internal combustion engines. Rotary engines ( Wankel engine) is also an internal combustion engine. In general, all types of engines in which the combustion chamber is an integrating part of the engine is considered a internal combustion engine.

An internal combustion engine is an engine where the fuel combustion happens inside a combustion chamber. There are both Reciprocating and Rotary engines that fall into this category. Most cars on the road today use internal combustion engines. An example would be the V-8 Hemi engines that Dodge puts in their trucks.
Internal engine has its energy ignited in the cylinder. like 99.9% of engines today An external combustion example is a steam engine where the heating prosses is done in an boiler out side the engine.
In terms of engines, an external combustion engine such as a steam engine burns fuel outside of the pressure cylinder used to drive the piston. An internal combustion engine such as a petrol or diesel engine burns the fuel inside the pressure cylinder used to drive the piston.
what is disadvantage of enternal combustion engine
Gasoline and Diesel engines are internal combustion engines. The fuel explodes (combusts) internally (in the cylinder) and releases energy that is used to move the vehicle. Electric engines and steam engines are not internal combustion engines by definition. Steam engines combust their fuel externally to the "engine". The vast majority of passenger vehicles produced throughout history are driven by internal combustion engines.
An external combustion engine is one in which the oxidation of the fuel occurs outside the engine, which provides heat to the motive portion of the engine. External combustion is characterized by burning the fuel outside of the moving parts, as opposed to burning fuel inside the cylinders of an internal combustion engine. The Steam engine, using steam pressure, is an example of external combustion, as in the "Stanley Steamer," an early motorcar; and in… Read More
Petrol and diesel engines are internal combustion engines. The internal combustion that turns the engine and powers the wheels is created by the combustion of fuel. No fuel, no combustion, and nothing to drive the wheels.
An external combustion engine (EC engine) is a heat engine where an fuel is burned outside the engine, which heats an internal working fluid. The fluid expands and drives the engine to produce motion or usable work. Conversely, internal combustion engines burn or explode the fuel within the engine, using the expanding exhaust gases to do work. Examples of external combustion engines are coal and oil-fired boilers on ships and in locomotives, and the "Stanley… Read More
In an Internal Combustion Engine, the fuel is burned in the cylinder or vessel. Eg. Diesel or Petrol engine used in Cars. Internal engine has its energy ignited in the cylinder, like 99.9% of engines today. In an External Combustion Engine, the internal working fuel is not burned. Here the fluid is being heated from an external source. The fuel is heated and expanded through the internal mechanism of the engine resulting in work. Eg… Read More
Internal combustion engine is where the fuel is ignited in the cylinder to make the piston move, petrol or diesel. A steam engine has an external pressure vessel to supply the steam to the cylinder to push the piston. the is no combustion in the engine as such.
Most vehicles, such as cars, vans, and trucks, use internal combustion engines.

No, the steam engine is an external combustion engine because the steam is heated by heat generated by combustion outside externally through heat transfer. A spark ignition engine is an example of an internal combustion engine.
Well, you have rocket engines and jet engines which aren't internal combustion engines, and various types of internal combustion (Otto cycle -- what you probably have in most cars, Diesel cycle like small diesel cars and trucks, Wankel cycle like in Mazda rotary engines like the RX series, and 2-stroke like in dirt bikes and lawnmowers). There are also Stirling engines which work on heat differential but don't make a lot of power and are… Read More
Automobile engines are ic (internal combustion).
An internal combustion engine burns the fuel inside the engine itself, i.e. gasoline burning in the cylinders. An external combustion burns the fuel outside the engine, i.e a steam engine on a locomotive.
The only external combustion engine I can think of would be a steam engine. I suppose subway trains could be considered external since they receive electrical power from outside to run the electric motors.

The automotive industry was the net result of the internal combustion engine, because the engine addressed the deficiencies of external combustion engines for road vehicles. The steam engine was the precursor to gas-fired piston engines (1860s), and the invention of the diesel internal combustion engine by Rudolf Diesel, a German scientist, in 1897. An early gasoline engine was built by Wilhelm Maybach in 1890. To this day, the basic form of the engine remains the… Read More
If the lawnmower is not electric powered then is is probably operated by an internal combustion engine (petrol or diesel. Oddly enough, very early lawnmowers were steam powered, which means they were examples of external combustion engines.
The Chinese government maintains strict control over their country's internal policies. The internal combustion engine is the most prevalent in motorized vehicles. Diesel engines operate differently than internal combustion engines using gasoline.

They are completely different engines; however, the most fundamental difference is that the Watt steam engine runs on steam, whereas the internal combustion engine runs on fuel oil.

Internal combustion engins come in a huge range of sizes from 1 or 2 ccs (for model aircraft), to vast engines for ships.

The internal combustion engine has created a truly enormous quantity of air pollution. Most of the smog found in large cities is created by the internal combustion engines of cars, although factories can also cause severe air pollution.
External Combustion engine is an engine in which combustion of fuel takes place outside the cylinder. e.g.Coal fired steam engines in trains
Steam Engine Jet turbine Engine Rotary Engine Electric Engine Rocket Engine The term 'engine' was originally coined to differentiate the "internal combustion" motor from all other previous types of motors. In the above mentioned answer, one should note that the jet turbine, the rocket, rotary and perhaps even the steam engines do have some sort of internal combustion. The proper term for the electric should be "Electric Motor"

The internal combustion engine is used in almost everything that needs power or motive traction. Cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, ships, aircraft, and many other things use internal combustion engines. The internal combustion engine is needed to convert fuel chemical energy to rotational mechanical energy, which can now be used for many different applications.
This particularly affects Mechatronics engineers, since their typical working day requires not only Internal Combustion Engines.
The external combustion engine ( a steam engine is a good example) burns it fuel to create an energy source that is then transported (piped) to a device to create mechanical motion. The internal combustion engine burns its fuel inside the device creating the mechanical motion (piston car engines and Aircraft jet engines are two examples)
Many different car engines have been invented. The first internal combustion engine was invented in 1807. It used a fuel of hydrogen and oxygen. In 1858 the first coal gas fueled internal combustion engine was invented. In 1864 a gasoline fueled engine was attached to a cart.

There were multiple German inventors who developed internal combustion engines in the late 19th Century, but the name you may want is Otto Daimler.
An external combustion engine is where something is burning outside of the actual engine and the energy is transmitted to the engine via something. (e.g. boiler creates steam that goes to the engine a.k.a. steam engine) In an internal combustion engine, the burning happens in the actual cylinders of the engine. (e.g. car engine)
In internal-combustion engines, the mixing of fuel with air or some other oxidizer within the engine in order to achieve complete and rapid combustion of the fuel.
