a: Ignition coil ~
b: a large capacitor

What: "an ignition coil is like a large capacitor, applying voltage creates a an electrical field ( charging the capacitor ) turning the coil off causes the field to collapse, and if there is a ground path ( spark plug with small gap ) there will be a spark. the distributor just aims the energy field to the respective spark plug in sequence. it also switches the ignitor on and off"
