CC or cubic centimeters refers to engine capacity. Specifically it refers to the amount of air/fuel mixture able to fit into the cylinders (where combustion occurs) at full expansion. 1 cc is equivalent to 1 gram of water aka 1 ml. An example: 250 cc engine means the cylinders with pistons at full expansion can hold a volume of 250 ml of air/fuel mixture prior to the combustion stroke....

You can compute CC by the formula: Volume of a cylinder = Pi x r^2 x length. Pi = 3.14 r = radius (1/2 of cylinder diameter - bore) ^2 = squared (r x r) length = piston travel from bottom dead center to top dead center (bdc - tdc). That gives you displacement for 1 cylinder. Multiply that by # of cylinders.

It means cubic centimeter in a car or a bike. Its a dimensional representation of engine cylinder volume. The actual cylinder volume where d combustion process takes place.

Cubic Centimeters: It is a measurement of the volume between when the piston is at the very top and very bottom of it's travel inside the cylinder, multiplied by the number of cylinders.

Because it's a metric measurement, it can be easily converted to liters. 1000cc = 1 liter, so 2.4L=2400cc.

There is not that much correlation between engine displacement and ultimate engine power. Power is determined by such factors as engine rpm, valve area, valve control, volumetric efficiency, etc... A modern Japanese 600cc sport bike, for example, makes almost twice the horsepower of my 1600cc Harley.

That is Cubic Centimeters(CC) s a commonly used unit of volume extending the derived SI-unit cubic metre, and corresponds to the volume of a cube measuring 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm. One cubic centimetre corresponds to a volume of 1⁄1000000 of a cubic metre, or 1⁄1000 of a litre, or one millilitre; thus, 1 cm3 ≡ 1 mL. The mass of one cubic centimetre of water at 3.98 °C (the temperature at which it attains its maximal density) is roughly equal to one gram.

Cubic capacity

More probably CC of a motorbike is meant by the engine capacity of that vehicle.For example-a 100 or 110CC bike

Piston and cylinder of a vehicle can be compared to a syringe and its piston , and how much air and fuel mixture it can withstand is measured in centimeter cube

Short for "cubic centimeters," a metric measure of an engine's displacement inmotorcycle. Other units of measurement for engines include cubic inches, which can be multiplied by 16.39 to yield the number in cubic centimeters.
