CC: Cubic Centimeter, Carbon Copy, Credit card, Country code
These four meanings or forms of CC include Cubic centimetre (or Carbon copy), Credit card, Country code, and Carbon copy.
We will go over each of these forms in detail, one at a time.
CC- Cubic Centimeter
Cubic centimetres, or CC, are used to indicate the engine’s capacity or volume in the automotive sector.
We show the power and volume of any engine that is powered by petrol, diesel, or gas with cubic centimetres (cc).
We all know that power is essential to drive any vehicle. That power comes from the engine.
The engine cylinder generates power when the fuel mixture and the air mixer are ignited.
The larger the cylinder, both in size and power, the more fuel it can burn.
Each engine has a piston within it that produces power from the pressure of the fuel.
The piston turns from the bottom to the top of the cylinder.
The capacity of an engine is the amount of space between the piston’s top and the bottom that can be used to rotate it.
This cylinder’s volume is expressed in litres. In the case of an engine-cylinder, we often refer to whether it has a 1-litre or 1.5-litre cylinder.
If the engine’s cylinder is large, it will produce more power.
We can therefore say that the more CC engines, the greater its fuel-burning capability and the higher power they will produce.
Cubic centimetres is the unit of cubic capacity for any engine.
We will use some examples to help you better understand the CC- cubic capacities.
Pulsar 150CC bicycle-It means that the bike’s engine has a capacity of 150 cubic centimetres.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire – 4 cylinder – 2 Liter – 1200 ccIt means that it is made up of 4 cylinders. Together, its volume is 2 litres. The capacity is 1200cc
More CC- equals more power
It is important to ask whether the engine’s size means that the engine has more horsepower.
Although this was true for the old engine, it’s not correct today. An engine with a larger cubic capacity does not necessarily mean you will get more power.
This is easier to understand if we use the two-bike example.
- Pulsar 220CC power output is 21 BHP
- Bullet 350 CC power output of 19.8 bhp
CC- Carbon Copy
When the Xerox machine wasn’t so readily available, a carbon sheet was used to make multiple copies of a note or letter.
This was done by placing carbon under the main page. It was also recorded on a second sheet.
This way, you can make as many copies of the same document as you like at once.
However, CC (carbon copy) is still the most popular method of sending email ie Internetmail.
The use of the Internet led to a rise in e-mail.
If we send an email to someone and want to send it to others with the same message, as well as show how many people received it, we use CC (carbon copy).
CC is very useful in large companies and organizations where mail must be sent to a lot more people or a specific team.
BCC is another term that is used when sending mail with CC.
This is also known as Blank carbon copy
Sending mail to someone you don’t know is a good idea.
