## How do you calculate the cc of an engine?

Put simply, bore multiplied by stroke gives you cylinder volume, and then you multiply that figure by cylinder count and you have the capacity of the engine.

**How do I calculate cylinder cc?**

How is it calculated?

- c.i.d. = 0.7854 x Bore2 (in.) x Stroke (in.) x Number of Cylinders.
- cc = (0.7854 x Bore2 (mm) x Stroke (mm) x Number of Cylinders) ÷ 1,000.
- 0.7854 x 3.7802 x 3.622 x 8 = 325 c.i.d.
- (0.7854 x 962 x 92 x 8) ÷ 1,000 = 5,327cc.

### Is engine a cc size?

Engine size is the volume of fuel and air that can be pushed through a car’s cylinders and is measured in cubic centimetres (cc). Car engine sizes are normally specified in litres, which is rounded up to the nearest tenth of a litre.

**How do you calculate engine liters?**

To get the displacement in liters, use a cubic inches to liters conversion calculator. You can also multiply cubic inches by 0.016387 to get the displacement in liters.

#### What cc is a 1.6 engine?

1,606

Car engine sizes

Cubic centimetres | Litres |
---|---|

1.0 | 1,000 |

1.5 | 1,500 |

1.6 | 1,606 |

1.7 | 1,721 |

**What does 1500cc mean?**

1500 Cubic Centimetres

For example, if an engine has a capacity of say 1500cc or 1500 Cubic Centimetres, then the capacity of that engine is 1.5 Litre i.e. 1500cc = 1500 cm³ = 1.5 Litre = 1.5L. A 1.5 litre engine means 1500 CC engine and the distribution of volume directly depends on piston arrangement and the number of cylinders.

## What CC is a 1.6 engine?

**What is CC to horsepower?**

Example #1: First, determine the total engine size in cubic centimeters. For this example, the engine size is found to be 750CC’s. Next, use the formula above to convert this value to horsepower. HP = CC/ 15 = 750 / 15 = 50 horsepower.

### What is 1500cc engine?

The relevant information will be next to cylinder capacity. So, remember, 1,500cc would be a 1.5-litre engine.

**What is a 1.2 engine in cc?**

1,160cc

Engine size is rounded to the closest tenth of a litre, so a 1,020cc power unit would still be called a 1.0-litre engine, while a 1,160cc would be a 1.2-litre.

#### What is cc to horsepower?

**What is a 2.0 engine in cc?**

If we take a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine as an example of what is often found in popular modern cars, each of those cylinders has a volume of about 500cc (or half a litre). Manufacturers round up numbers so a 2.0-litre engine might actually have a more specific 1997cc.
