Engine Displacement

 
 
 
Engine size is typically stated by the volume of air that is displaced by the piston as it travels through one stroke. The volume that the piston can displace is commonly called swept volume. The unit of measurement commonly used will be Cubic Centimeters and/or Cubic Inches.
To calculate the displacement of a given engine, we must know some basic engine terminology. See diagram below.
