displacement/horsepower question

I have a general question. Is there an equivalent horsepower rating for a 17cc engine. I would also like the horsepower equivalent for a 31cc? I am looking at gasoline powered edgers and they go from 17cc or 31cc to 3.5 hp.
Thanks Gilbert

There is no direct correlation between engine displacement and horsepower. Yes, an engine that displaces more will generally produce more power but there is not a direct mathmatical relationship.
