here's to u engine gurus, simple one here..

Yea yea yea I know it is a simple one but I forgot and is pissing me off!! How do you calculate the cubic inches of an engine if u know the stroke and bore?? I want the COMPLETE formula not just the number you multiply by. I do realise the formula for the. volume of a cylinder is Pi*radius squared*height, but that is not helping in my dilema. Is the bore the circumference of the cyliner or is it the diameter? Oh wait it cannot be the circumference, that 3-4 inches is too small for that. Damn help me out here... I am frustrated and too lazy to look it up LOL .
I will post on the other forums sections too.

well the answer you are not looking for is

CID = Number of Cylinders X 0.7854 X Bore X Bore X Stroke
