Cigarette Lighter, Simulated X-ray
Photograph - Photograph
Cigarette lighter. Simulated X-ray of a cigarette lighter. The hinged lid of the lighter is slightly open. The main body of the lighter contains a canister of lighter fuel. A wick draws the fluid up the nozzle (centre), where it vaporizes. The gas is ignited by a spark created by rubbing the wheel (centre right) on a flint. The protective grille around the nozzle helps the lighter to stay alight even in windy conditions.
