The heart of the engine is the engine block or cylinder block. This accommodates the crank assembly.

2 sin 2 x = sin 2 x + cos 2 x + sin 2 x − cos 2 x = 1 − (cos 2 x − sin 2 x) = 1 − cos(2x) In the last conversion, one of the addition theorems is applied.
In reality, there are also additional higher order inertia forces. These are truncated by the approximation in equation 4.11.
OHV = overhead valve.
OHC = overhead camshaft.
The actual number of valves is much larger, and is calculated by multiplying the number of valves per cylinder (four in four-valve engines) by the number of cylinders.
