- ‘The swept volume is the amount of volume that the piston moves through as it moves up and down.’
- ‘The swept volume of the primary cylinder remains the same throughout any given range.’
- ‘All used the same basic chassis, the main difference being the engine capacity (the model number is derived from the swept volume of one cylinder).’
