A cork is seal for a bottle. Traditionally, corks were made out of a type of aged wood. Nowadays, most corks are made out of plastic, though wooden corks are still used for higher end wines. The verb form of cork means to close or sealsomething. The idiom, put a cork in it, means to stop speaking.
Cork is the buoyant, light brown substance obtained from the outer bark layer of the cork oak. It is used to seal bottles.

What are the function of the cork?

If you mean cork as in bottle stoppers, the cork seals in the food or liquid and keeps out air which can lead to spoilage. Cork is a good substance for this purpose because it is flexible and when inserted into an opening like the top of a wine bottle, it expands to fill the space completely and provide a good seal. It is also readily renewable since cork trees grow quickly.
