I suggest comparing the spectral analysis to the classic flame tests of qualitative analysis in chemistry. The flame tests are limited to the more easily ionized elements, but there is a relationship. I presume you did flame tests in lab.

Seems to be a glaring error...

You stated
These rings have to reliably create a tight seal between the piston and the cylinder wall while travelling at up to 4,000+ feet per second

WOW! If that were the case, there would be thousands of sonic booms in our engine all the time!

I think you meant FEET PER MINUTE.
Nice work though.

Perhaps also consider NOT using °F. Centigrade looks more scientifically literate.

Indeed, because if you "corrected" it, you'd have to explain your "correction", and then you'd look like a pedant.

Leave it alone. You're saying how the reserve alkalinity is measured. Doesn't matter in that context what the reserve additive is

Or even Celsius.
