Nominal volume generated by the working piston when traveling from one dead center to the next is called

### Right Answer is: Swept volume

#### SOLUTION

Swept volume is the volume swept by the engine piston during one stroke. It is the volume generated by the piston when traveling from one dead end to the other.

or

The volume swept by the piston in the cylinder during its suction stroke or movement from TDC to BDC is called Swept Volume (Vs).

The volume swept by the piston in the cylinder during its suction stroke and is given by

${V_s} = AL = \frac{\pi }{4}{d^2}L$

where

d = Inner diameter of the cylinder

L = stroke length

BDC: The extreme downward position of the piston in a vertical engine.

TDC: The extreme upward position of the piston in a vertical engine.
