With reference to the mode of action (including a schematic diagram) and its role in engine management discuss the proposal that the Lambda Sensor in a petrol engine represents analytical science at its best in a harsh environment and with high performance demands. (Note that in the past this question has been poorly answered because students tended to put too much into the theory and technoilogy and not enough on the analytical philosopy)

Any diagrams used must not be cut and pasted from other sources. They MUST be either redrawn

by hand and scanned in or drawn using an electronic drawing tool. Any directly lifted

diagrams will be ignored for the purpose of assessment.
