The Scottish inventor and engineer James Watt invented the term "horsepower." He calculated that a horse could do, on average, 33,000 foot-pounds per minute. The abbreviation "cc" stands for cubic centimeters and represents the total volume of all the cylinders in a combustion engine. The cc capacity is often shown in liters. Often, the higher the cc size of an engine, the greater the horsepower.
