How does gas spring in a car boot works? Suppose there were no springs on the trunk lid of your car. It would be really heavy to lift, for one thing. So gas spring is very important to a car. Read the following basic idea: A gas spring is a bit like a super-sturdy version of a bicycle pump, only it's filled with pressurized nitrogen gas and oil and completely sealed up so they can't escape. The gas allows the spring to store energy, while the oil damps the movement of the piston and also provides lubrication. Just like in a bicycle pump, there's a tight-fitting piston mounted on a rod that can slide back and forth inside a cylinder. Push on a gas spring and you force the piston rod and piston into the cylinder and this compresses the gas. Stop pressing and let go and the pressure of the gas pushes the piston back out again. Exactly how this happens varies from one design of gas spring to another; usually the piston has one or more holes or valves in it. Now if the piston can move through the gas, you might think it isn't compressing the gas at all. But don't forget that the whole cylinder is completely sealed. When the piston rod is inside the cylinder, it's taking up room that the gas previously occupied. In other words, when a gas spring is fully pushed in, you've compressed the gas inside by an amount equal to the volume of the piston rod. If the piston rod occupies virtually the whole cylinder, you can see that the gas is getting compressed quite substantially. The gas pressure can be very high, typically up to about 170 times normal atmospheric pressure!
