what does CC mean and stand for?

# Thread: what does CC mean and stand for?

1. ## what does CC mean and stand for?

was woundering what does CC mean and stand for?

2.

3. cc = cubic centimeter

4. what context?

closed captioning?

carbon copy?

cubic centimetres?

5. Cubic Centimeters

6. At the end of an e-mail it means that a "carbon copy" was sent to someone else...
that's the most common context in which i see it used...
...or CC's as in engine size like Gord said.

7. yes but in terms of bikes and cars and engines (this site related) it means cubic centimetres.

8. In terms of measurement it represents cubic centimeters, as others have written above.

In relation to an engine's size, the cc's describe how many cubic centimeters of volume are displaced, measuring the circumference of the cylinders, and the stroke of the pistons.

9. I think it means Crash Car.

oh cool, I never knew the real explantion.. i always just thought it was the volume of all the cylinders combined.

Yeah it's pretty cool. Officials can check to see if race bikes are legitimately running whatever cc engine's they are supposed to by a device which pours fluid in through the spark plug hole. This measuring device lets you see what level the fluid is at when the piston is at full bottom and again at full top. Do that for each cylinder and you have the true displacement of the engine!

Hence the term "displacement" when talking engine size.

noice! thanks for the mechanical lesson.. "displacement" hahaha, never occurred to me!
