CC Full Form

What is the full form of CC?

The full form of CC is Cubic Capacity.

Note: CC is used as an abbreviation in multiple places. In this article, we are focussing on Cubic Capacity.

CC relates to engine size and capability. It describes the automobile cylinder volume between the Piston’s Top Dead Center (TDC) and the Bottom Dead Center (BDC), where combustion occurs within the actual cylinder. The Cubic Capability or displacement is the volume that the piston sweeps inside the cylinder. And, if the Cubic Capacity of an engine is greater, then the burning fuel and efficiency of the engine would be higher.

Measurement of Cubic Capacity

  • If the engine’s Cubic Capacity is more, fuel economy would be less because it consumes more fuel.
  • The formula to measure the Cubic Capacity of an engine is

V = (π/4) x (D2) x N x H


V = Volume

D = Bore Diameter

N= Number of Cylinders

H = Stroke Length

The value of π is 3.14

  • Cubic Capacity is measured in terms of cubic centimetres.

Conversion to CC

  1. One cubic inch = 16.38706 cm 3
  2. One milliliter = 1 cm 3
  3. One liter = 1000 cm 3 .
