The cubic centimetre (or cubic centimeter; US spelling) is a unit of volume and is derived from an SI unit with the symbol cm³.
There are 1000cm³ in 1 litre. 1 cubic inch is equal to 16.38706cm³.
The cubic centimetre is sometimes referred to as cc or ccm - for example when administering drugs in a liquid solution. This is due to its relatively small size.
It is also often used in the 'cc' form to express the size of a petrol or diesel engine and represents the total displacement volume of the engine.
