    For bikes we used to describe them in cc, like 120cc, 180cc etc. What is cc? is it cubic centimeter, the volume of cylinder.

    You are absolutely right. CC stands for “cubic centimeters”. It is a measure of volume of air that can be taken into the cylinder of an engine when the piston moves outwards.

    For cars we have multi cylinders, In that case does cc refer to volume of one cylinder or sum of volumes of all cylinders?
