Length of stroke, cylinder bore, clearance volume, thermal efficiency

The four cylinders of a four-stroke spark-ignition petrol engine have a total capacity (swept volume) of 1200 cm^3.

The stroke-bore ratio is 1.1, the compression ratio is 9.5 and the ratio of the specific heats (y) is 1.41.

Determine:
(a) the length of stroke
(b) the cylinder bore
(c) the clearance volume per cylinder in cm^3
(d) the thermal efficiency

Answer:
CR = (CV + SV) / CV

SV= Swept volume
CV= Clearance Valoume
CR= Compression Ration

( C)_______________________
note: the total swept volume of all 4 cylinders given ...
