Best Answer

A carburetor mixes air and fuel in appropriate proportions. Air and Liquid fuel are the inputs to the carburetor at different points of the carburetor.

Due to suction created by the working engine , atmosperic Air is accelerated through the venturi in the carburetor.

Accelerating Air sucks Fuel into the venturi at its center from a level regulated liquid fuel pot in the carburetor,due to the venturi action. (Bernoulli's Principle)

During the process of sucking the fuel is atomised /becomes a mist , as it enters the venturi. The atomised fuel then evaporates and mixes with the air uniformly.

This uniform gaseous mixture of fuel and air is the out put of the carburetor.

This gaseous mixture then enters into engine cylinders for combustion.
