    Think about the gas laws and how pressure affects other variables when increased or decreased and what that means for an internal combustion engine.

    Try reading ahead in your textbook/revision book? It's not too difficult, you should be able to make sense of it.

    Which direction is conventional current flowing? Is there a magnetic field?

    if you increase the gas pressure the pressure will also increase which will cause for the pressure of the internal combustion engine to heat up and work at a faster rate?

    Yes, this is Gay-Lussac's Law p/t=k, but does an internal combustion engine work faster if it heats up more? What about the other laws?

    Nope, which other law involves pressure?

    the latter, Charles' Law is when pressure is constant.

    For a combustion engine you want the volume to be low.

    The lower the volume the more pressure (Charles' Law pv=k). This means that more pressure can build up, meaning more force can be exerted when the spark plug ignites the gas. This ultimately means more energy in a smaller area and a bigger explosion so the piston is forced back down, and the cycle can restart.
