Condensers function as heat exchangers in the air conditioning system of a car. Condensers look very much like radiators, just a little thinner, and they also depend on air flowing through them. They are located in front of the radiator. Nowadays, condensers are often made of aluminum, and in the past, some were made of copper or brass.

In the contact point ignition system, a capacitor is connected across the contact points to reduce arcing by providing a storage place for electricity; as the contact points open. In an air conditioning system, the radiator-like heat exchanger in which refrigerant vapor lose heat and returns to the liquid state
