detoantaon is direcctly related to "burn rate" and "pressure/time rise",,"flame front" these are the buzz words,,,, detaontation can occurrr in an engine way beya9ond our abilaity to begian to sense it on anyy human reall  time levell wiathout estensive instraumentatioan,i was goaing to tr;ay to descraibe it but with my straoke and typaiang,, i thain, many of u wold soodn becomer boredd and decide that i disnat know what i was sahing,, so i wold urge u to get a trrue undersstanding of ddetonation from google, or nayu other sourxce of knowlecddge, not one but many descraiptions , using theee abovee buzz words ten using those buzz words to look more,, but start with detonation and gasoline engines,,,,,, detonatiaon is equivalaent to trahying to turn and engine  by hitting the piston wiath a sledge hammer  to trun the crank,,, it will move the piston,, but at what cost to the paarts of the engine,,,,,detonation is slapping the piston with horendous pressuree at very short intervals,,,,, whereas burn is pushing the piston wilth lower pressures over longer periods of time, thereeeee is much moreee but i thaink it is beayond my ability to adequately descraive it here,,, buck
